Weʼre raising £5,000 to help my Aunty Jacqui create an invention that could help save lives.
- London, UK
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.
Back in 2001 my Aunty Jacqui invented a musical dummy. She paid a substantial amount of money to a company, ITE in Ireland to help her with her invention. Unfortunately, her invention was stolen.
My Aunty has now invented a new product called 'Save a life'. it is a band which can be used for people taking part in all water sports, skiing, mountaineering and it will also help people with medical conditions from the age of 5 to 105. It will release a substance that can also be seen in the dark to alert people you are in danger.
Many meetings have taken place and she has patent pending for prototype providing my Aunty raises £15,000 to bring it to fruition and on the market.
In 2010 she was diagnosed with cancer and then was given the all clear 2016. In 2017 the cancer returned. Despite being cleared for the second time she has to return to hospital every month for the rest of her life to have bone infusions.
My Aunty has been through a lot and really is the strongest women I know.
Now she is better all she wants to do is help others and as she always says she would love to "save a life" before leaving planet earth.
Please can you help her dream come true.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
