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.
Just over a month ago my Mum passed away. It was a terrible day for me especially as i wasnt there for her, i was in london working my nightshift and i didnt find out until the morning. I was devastated.
The past few months haven't been easy and my Mum was always there on the other end of the phone to help me through, even though I'm 20 I still needed her.
i needed her when my dodgy landlord threw me out and kept my £1000 deposit, she believed I'd work twice as hard to make it up while living out of a hostel.
i needed her when id worked a 16 hour shift overnight and i was tired and emotional
she was there when all i wanted to do was go home
i wouldnt have got through this year without her
Now shes gone, i want to give her the funeral she deserves but its drained me of money. I barely have enough money to get to work and back.
Please help support me get back on my feet and pay for the funeral my mother deserves,
