What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

I'm a 21-year-old Ukrainian girl. In June 23, 2015, I got burned as a result of fire. I had been in burn center during almost 5 months, 35% of my body had been burned (22% of my burns were full-thickness burns). I went through 15 surgeries of skin grafting, lost both ears, and now I have to deal with scars, that’s why I need a plastic surgery of hands (after scarring of skin grafts I’ve got a syndactyly (webbing of the fingers)) . As a result of it, I can’t move fingers in such a way I need for living a productive life. Also, the scars are growing on my arms and I wish them to be treated someday.
I'm an active person and I want to live such a life I had before the injury.
I visited a medical center of plastic and reconstructive surgery named Valikhnovski MD in Kiev, Ukraine, and the therapist assured me that all can be done. He offered me a reconstructive surgery (silicone prosthetic ears), which costs about €12000. I decided to try to collect money with the help of different crowdfunding platforms.
So I ask all of you for help in raising money. Every donation is important.

    Please, help! My parents' salaries are quite low, about $300 per month. We don't have enough money to pay for surgery! Help me to get my beauty back! I will be grateful for every $1 you donated! God bless you! Here are the picture of my right hand after burns
