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.
Having served 15 years in the British Army i know how difficult the transition to civilian life can be for some people, a vast number of veterans slip through the cracks and can find themselves homeless without anywhere to turn to. I have been lucky and now my company want to take 5 veterans ( with a view to help more depending on success) house them, train them and set them up as traders for a period of 6 months in the city of London to see if we can take total novices who have no experience of trading and turn them into profitable traders therefore making the business self sustainable and thus able to take on more veterans, it will also be filmed for a 3 part documentary which will cover the veterans previous experiences, highlight the issues they have faced and also document the training and working life afterwards. I can provide the training for free and have spoken to numerous companies with regards to helping us out however this is an expensive endeavour which requires funding to make it a reality. I will of course be taking no money over the course of the 6 months, all money made will go into the company with the hope that at the end of the process it is a viable and self sustainable business.
We are starting from the ground up and require funding for the office space, accommodation, equipment, you name it, we need it.
I am in talks with investors who are keen to help out with regards to supplying the guys and girls the trading funds and hopefully we can make them a profit in return.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and if you cant help out with money a share of the post on social media is just as appreciated.
