Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hi thanks for reading, I'm trying to raise some money to help my friend & her kids. She is an amazing person who is always doing things for other people and raising money for local animal charities & cancer charities & now she is devastated as she isn't going to manage to give her 3 young kids a Christmas this year due to illness & I really want to help.
She is 32 and has always been really active & studied for over 4 years to be able to work with children ,a job she loved & now due to being diagnosed with her illness she has had to leave her job she worked so hard to get & has no income. She suffers badly from fibromyalgia, arthritis in her knees and hands, severe back problems as well as a few other health complaints. This family is in such need of a break & are so great ,everyone of them has a heart of gold ,its just not fair. Sarah's husband gave up work to look after her & their 3 children ,2 of which have disabilities as well & he has health issues too, he single handedly looks after Sarah & their 3 children despite being in & out of hospital several times with a hernia & ongoing kidney which he just had an operation for.
They don't like asking for help & are probably the most selfless people I've ever met but it's not right that the should be suffering in silence .The only help they have had is from a local food bank & I know that Sarah & Allan are going without food most days so that the kids eat & Christmas is a huge worry. Like everyone they just want their kids to be happy at Christmas & have been through a lot as they are worried about their mum & dad's health. I try to help as much as I can but it's not enough. It breaks my heart to hear their 3 year old saying that it will be ok because Santa will make it better and get us all presents, he asked Santa to help them too. Bless.
Please even if you could spare just 5op or a pound it would help.
Thank you xxx
