Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund my mental wellbeing and creative work
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am raising money for myself, so I am more able to participate and afford my creative work. I mainly work with textiles and this creative work is my main, if not my whole, source of pride and comfort while living with mental illnesses and Asperger's and Dyslexia. Unfortunately I cannot work, or at least have a 'standard' job, due to my problems that arise when having these conditions.
Now with such uncertainty with funding and benefits constantly under threat, I am sadly severely underfunded, despite living with my parents who help where they can. I am not asking for sympathy, thats the last thing I want, I just kindly ask for a little help so I can achieve one of my main two goals in life - to have my own small business in textiles.
