Weʼre raising £1,000 to Kick start small business after period of illness
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.
At the beginning of 2014 life was perfect. I had a successful needlework framing business that I had finally put back together after having a car crash in 2009. I had a job in a school and the two worked beautifully. Everything was great. One event changed everything and I spiralled into a very very dark place with depression and wanting to die. Finally a light at the end of the tunnel but life is no longer great.
My employment changed, and I struggle daily. My framing business was completely mothballed. I need motivation and a goal to get going.
I want to get my little framing business back where it was. I want to diversify into cross stich, fabrics, floss and more so if I have a bad time I can concentrate on the retail side, with a view to this being my entire life and me employment side no more.
I tried last year, but health kicked me in the teeth again, but there was a ray of light. No funding is all that is stopping me and the feeling of can I do it.
Help me raise enough to start the cross stitch side with a good range of goods so when grey days hit, I can do this side rather than the framing and people side.
