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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Sarah is 30 years old in August. We are trying to raise funds for her to have a downstairs bedroom and bathroom. Since last September she has been in a hospital bed in the dining room, while this is great she is with the family, she has no private space and gets confused, often asking if she can go home? It would be wonderful to create her own bedroom.

Sarah has a very rare degenerative neurological condition called Kufs disease. It’s been two years since she was assessed as needing her own space and we finally have planning permission for her downstairs bedroom and bathroom extension, but we have not got the full funds to go ahead with the build. We have raised £60,000 towards it but the cost of the basic build is £100,000. If successful in raising funds, the build could start this year.

    After speaking to family and friends, who have arranged fundraising events in the coming months, we have decided to keep the just giving page open. Any extra funds will pay for the following: A 4ft profiling bed, much more comfortable than a hospital bed and wide enough to give her a cuddle, carpets and bathroom flooring curtains bathroom tiles And if we have enough, a patio outside Sarah’s bedroom so she can be wheeled into the garden. Thank you for all your incredible support, we are eternally grateful to everyone for helping us.
