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.
For my birthday this year I dont want presents or that ‘birthday drink’. I would like my friends and family to donate to Brothers In Arms Scotland.
Brothers In Arms Scotland are a charity ran in Scotland that focus on men’s mental health and suicide prevention. A topic very close to myself and many of my friends and family’s hearts. They describe themselves as ‘a 21st century charity for a 21st century male’. They currently have an app which can be downloaded here to help men of any age cope with the issues life chucks at them.
They’re also currently fundraising to get a license to help children and support their parents as no one needs to go through health issues of any type alone. And no one should feel like they’re better off not being here.
I encourage anyone to speak out. Or even phone annonymously to the smartians (01383 722222 for friends in dunfermline or 116 123 for a 24 hour line) if they ever feel down.
Equally, if you’re friend becomes distant and stops reaching out. Reach out to them. You never know what goes on behind closed doors and inside heads. Spread the love, thanks ❤️.
