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.
My friends become homeless after a month stay in hospital with double pneumonia and a blood clot. The sick pay wasn't nearly enough and when he recovered enough to go back to work he was forced to change jobs, but the pay didn't come fast enough and he ended up with a fairly large debt. £1,500 would go some way to helping pay back the money owed and get him, his partner and their 8 year old son, whom is registered disabled back on their feet.
