Weʼre raising £100 to Raise Awareness For Mental Health

Bristol, United Kingdom

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.


Hello, my name is Mercedes.

I am trying my absolute best to raise awareness for mental health. To help raise awareness and also help my own recovery - I make jewellery and art for people who are going through a tough time and struggle with various mental health illnesses (or know someone who does) through my online shop.

But - I understand not everyone can afford to pay for my items. Therefore, I would like to be able to send out cotton bracelets for FREE! I have had many requests on people wanting to receive one but can not afford to buy them. I want to give out as many cotton bracelets as I possibly can to people that need them. However - to carry on making them and posting them to their new homes I will need some financial support on making this a reality.

I am very passionate about raising awareness and helping others as I suffer with anxiety myself for a number of years and currently receiving help for this.

It would mean the world to me if you could make a donation. No matter how small it will go such a long way! And it will make so many people happy.

People also ask I don't want to buy from your shop but I would love to help in any way I can. So how can I help?* So I have also set up this page for those people. Who would love to support what I do but do not wish to order.

Thank-you so much from the bottom of my heart in advance.
