Weʼre raising £20,000 to Build a holiday glamping site for families of children with learning difficulties and special needs, such as autism & Downs syndrome
- Vienne, France
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.
Our son is 15 years old and is autistic and one of the things we have discovered over the years is that when we are on holiday with him is that people will stare and whisper , and often his more able piers will leave him out . so recently we have looked into holidays that cater for families like us and there is a real shortage . Parents and children become very thick skinned to the above problems but still look forward to our very well deserved holidays .So we have had an idea of a Family Glamping Site just for family's that experience the same things. Ran by people that empathise with your everyday battles .
Three years ago we moved to south west France , we now live in a very quite rural part of France and have found the perfect spot for families to enjoy a week or twos holiday , we believe in this idea so much that we are willing to either mortgage our home or even sell to get this off the ground . if we could raise the money this would be used for sensory toys and other oudoor activities .
