What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Louis my amazing son is 12 yrs old and was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy when he was 5. Louis always has a cheeky smile on his face regardless what hurdles he's had to face.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is a condition which affects all the skeletal muscles which results in the loss of mobility as well as other problems as he gets older.
April this year, Louis lost the muscle strength in his legs resulting in not being able to walk and having to use a powered wheelchair.
Even though the current chair is funded through the NHS, as you can imagine it's not the most comfortable and he's outgrown it.
So, I'm now fundraising to be able to purchase Louis a new, better, more comfortable chair from another company, as you can imagine these don't come cheap.
So, if any of you would like to donate - however small the amount may be, we really will appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of our hearts as we only want to be able to give Louis a better quality of life and also the independence like any other.
