Weʼre raising £100,000 to give my beloved wife the kind of life she deserves
- Reading, UK
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 don't drink, take drugs, smoke or bet,
but multiple redundancies have burdened me with debt.
Health issues have not helped of course
and stupid mistakes fill me with remorse.
If I could invest in stocks, I would crash the market.
If I won a Ferrari, I'd have nowhere to park it.
But I am the world's luckiest man in one part of my life,
that's the love I have with my beautiful wife.
My wife is my life, my sunshine, my air.
With her in my life, I shouldn't have a care.
But she has a chronic condition that breaks my heart.
I have to leave to work, though I can't bear to be apart.
Being in the sun makes her feel better.
To a paradise island i would love to jet her
or, in an ideal world, have a place of our own,
retire, be together and never leave her alone.
I'm dreaming now, for I just cannot see
a day in the future where I will be debt free.
I rent my house, I finance my car
and, yes, I know there are people worse off by far.
I have a roof over my head and food on my plate
but to provide for our future, I need a clean slate.
I don't want the money for myself, my needs are clear.
It's for my wife and my son - everything I hold so dear.
So, if anybody out there offers the kindness I seek,
my hopes, my future, my life would be less bleak.
To clear my debts, to set me free,
to be the person my family deserve me to be.

About the fundraiser
I am a devoted husband, my wife is my life. Unfortunately, she suffers from multiple sclerosis and it breaks my heart to see her suffering in any way. Our dream is to live in Spain, where the warmer climate reduces her symptoms. But debts make this an unrealistic dream.
