The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Ah the difficult story writing part.
It'll depend how much you know about me and whether you want to, and can, help out (so to speak).
This is the first step in taking control of my life. I have rarely asked for help but I've seen in the last few weeks it's one of the bare necessities not covered in the jungle book (or Mr R. Kipling needs his book updated for the modern world).
My business will be predominantly consulting but with a focus on customer service and ultimately customers (or as I like to call them....PEOPLE). I'll be looking to write a book, I've got the websites and I want to DJ too.
These will take some time but with some start up cash I can start moving from idea creation (too many to mention) towards the reality of being a self-employed M-A-N. I'll still have the facial hair of a 15 year old though!
The target is not the key here but the willingness to ask for people to pledge some money with the understanding this will be 'start up capital' and from there I'll be looking to ensure the money then gets re-circulated to those who need it more - charities, homeless shelters, etc.
I've tried listening to other people and what they want from life. It's now time for me to be bold enough to put something like this out in the public domain and see how it catches on.
So there's no appearance on Dragon's Den but if you'd like to talk or pledge some money I'd really appreciate your questions, interest and/or support with money.
Alternatively I'm just as keen for people who'd like to volunteer to help or pledge some time as I need website developers, musicians, artists....the whole deal!

About the fundraiser
Dorking, Surrey, United Kingdom
I'm 32 and have struggled with depression and anxiety for the last 10+ years. Half Canadian / Half British and currently I want to move back to Canada to live. That said I also want to travel more and help people who need help and don't get much support. This is a start.
