    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Charlie was born in 2010. He was a happy and healthy baby until around the age of 15 months when he began to slip away in to a silent and repetitive world. He lost all of his language and eye contact and would perform the same tasks over and over.

    After 2 years of assessments Charlie was diagnosed with Autism. His parents were told he may never talk, may never be toilet trained or be able to show any affection.

    Not wanting to believe his grim prognosis they began their own research and found The Son-Rise Program® which is a therapy that originated in the United States. The Son-Rise program advocates a loving and non-judgmental attitude and focuses on increasing social interaction rather than solely working on academics.

    Charlie has now been in a part time Son-Rise program for the past two and a half years and he has transformed dramatically. He is now able to look at people and be around people. He is fully toilet trained and has started to communicate using single words. Above all this Charlie is happy and is starting to become the same little boy he was before the Autism.

    Funds raised for Charlie's voice help his parents with the continuation of his Son-Rise Program. The money helps to pay for teachers to visit their home and work one on one with Charlie. For consultations with Son-Rise professionals, for further training and for training of volunteers who want to work with Charlie.

      Ok so the first week if training is done. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared and I will be honest a lot if doubt has kicked in over this week as to whether or not I can actually do it! But I've had a word with myself and dusted myself down and we are doing in. I did have to ice my arm and lather myself in heat lotion yesterday after randomly pulling a muscle in my arm. Training tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday so will keep you posted with how it's all going x

    Over the past two years I have watched my friend Beth move mountains fighting to get her baby back and Charlie find his voice. Inspired by this amazing women and her amazing little boy I wanted to help her fund the next part of his treatment. He is also the cutest boy EVER!
