    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.

    Story

    After battling with severe mental health since an early age, and becoming a stand in husband, father, son, financer and carer for a mother who snapped when my father walked out at the age of eleven, I’ve recently hit rock bottom. I am also waiting on a psychiatric assesment for suspected bi-Polar.

    On the 14th of August 2017, I attempted to kill myself. I had 3 different ways of doing it which I’ve been very open and honest about in my self help blog Merely Marc .

    As you can see I have dealt with a lot and it wasnt helped by my mother, who herself has her own mental health issues and an addiction to the ‘legal demon’ that is alcohol.

    I have never felt so alone in all my life and still feel pretty similar. However there where two reasons I didn’t jump, overdose or slice harder that day and they are the only reason I believe I’m still here...

    My boys (Alfie Reeves and Brent Goose) saved my life that day. Like my mother, these two also rely on me to survive, and even as my heart has been shatterd into pieces, these two kept it and still keep it beating.

    I dont ask for help. I can barely accept it either, but the past few weeks I’ve been learning to ask and open to receiving. Feeling so alone and desperate I have been saved by what can only be described as a true superhero, who dropped everything and came from East Scotland all the way to Northern Ireland to rescue me and my boys and put a roof over our heads, all-be-it on a temporay basis.

    So I’m here asking for help. Perhaps more for my boys than myself with travel costs, to bording kennels, pet taxi’s, even down to possible vet bills but right down to the basics of dog food also. I will happily go without before I let them starve.

    Any help anyone can give will be more than generous, but even if my story itself reaches you or someone you know then I’m happy in the fact that I’ve helped you or them.

    Love and light guys

      These two boys of mine are sticking to me like glue. And why not! I am to them and visa-versa! Next step is getting their own deposits down for our new home if all goes well 🤞🏻 Together we are stronger and yes of course an unconventional family, but ‘we’ would have it no other way. Love and light everyone. Thankyou for all you have done for us three. You’ve brought hope to a shattered heart and kept the light alive in all three of our hearts Love and light.. always x

      So by some miracle it appears that things may be turning for the better. The next task is to raise funds for........ MOVING HOME!!! Yes you read correctly. I may be jumping the gun by a few days but potentially by the end of this week I may very well be on my way to securing a home for me and the boys! I won’t count my chickens before they’ve hatched but the sooner I get back to the little ‘ireland’ I call home the sooner I can get right back on track and to start new. Thankyou to all so far and Thanks for those who are willing to help further

      Currently I am still a little stranded but my optimism and enthusiasm to continue is so much more stronger than it has been before. I feel very much wanted and actually my boys are in a similar position all be it on a temporary basis. My outlook on life is getting to a place I never thought possible and my boys are loving their ‘moist and meaty’ dog food that I’ve been able to provide for them. We three still have a way to go and getting us all back to a place to call home is my priority. Your help and continued help will get us there. 😘

    My story is open, honest and true. My need is great but the reasons behind it more so. If my story even helps you or someone you know, then I’m happy I can be of help. Love and light.
