What is crowdfunding?

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


To remember my beloved partner and beautiful friend Teitur Árnason, who passed away unexpected and far too young, in the middle of following his dream to develop his career as a musician and sound engineer in London.

Born in Iceland, Teitur moved to Glasgow and later to London where he lived and worked for more than 10 years.

Teitur had just turned 33 years old and was a much loved person with never ending compassion and interest in anyone he met. He instilled confidence in, inspired and radiated joy to those near him.

His inclusive, loving character, kindness and sense of fun is his legacy but to express our love and respect we would like to keep a rose at the crematorium in Teitur's name.

As Teitur was a musician and also loved playing basketball my family will also buy basketballs and guitars to children in the orphanage Akany Avoko, where his nephew spent a few of his first years.

      I am an old friend from Exeter Uni days. I last saw Teitur as a vibrant, effusive, kind, little boy playing with my baby.He had so clearly become such a special, lovely man. I am sorry for your loss
