    What is crowdfunding?

    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 can`t believe i`m even doing this, and have no idea what to expect, but here goes,
    Im Mark, i have hit a point in my life where i am isolated and in despeate need of a miracle.
    I am looking to raise £10,000, Half for training and half for therapy. x

    I have undergone serious trauma in my life from childhood, mainly from abusive, unloving parents, a father with no interest and a seriously abusive stepfather in my teen years, who it turned out was a peadophile.
    I lacked the father figure i desperately needed, so i ran away from home when i was 14, with a seriously low self esteem, and no idea who i was.

    I was then befriended by others in a similar situation in a local town, living in squats and tents, and ultimately ended up getting into drugs and alcohol.
    Through my 20`s, i battled with addiction, still not knowing who i really was, numbing the pain thinking it would go away, i was so wrong.

    Im now 30, i have managed to get a stable place of my own, and have thankfully managed to end my addictive behaviours, and am looking to a positive future as an Electrician, but i need help, ive never asked anyone for help like this before, and i do not have any family or friends around me to ask for help.

    Im still battling with mental health issues, due to unresolved traumas, and after going to doctors for 5 years trying to get help, ive realised they dont like to pay out for therapy.
    I need proffessional help from the right srvices to fully recover, and the training i need to cntinue my career of course, to get that, im going to have to pay.

    I have recently suffered a mental breakdown as a result of not getting the right help, it crippled me, and enough is enough.
    I had gained some electrical qualifications in my 20`s, however they were never completed due to my situation, leaving me unqualified, making getting work near impossible. I am a very competent person with lots of experience in electrical work, all i need the paperwork to get the future work.
