Weʼve raised £2,465 to help make a difference to families after a cancer diagnosis using services within the local community. #wolo #weonlyliveonce #wolofoundation
- Funded on Monday, 4th May 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
So, this past year has been completely life-changing for our family...but we are now ready to move onwards and upwards. Justin and I both feel very passionately about helping others going through a similar situation. We were shocked at how little financial help there is out there for families like ours.
Justin works as a full time designer, and I purposely created a job that would fit around the children. Upon diagnosis, my income went as I had to stop working almost immediately. Suddenly we were on our own. There was no help out there for us as I wasn't eligible....and knowing we didn't want others to go through it like we did, ignited a little flame inside our hearts - and thats how this idea all began. We hope to try and set up a charity to help families through cancer treatment. Its still in the very early stages, but we would love your help to try and get the ball rolling.
We love the acronym YOLO (you only live once) so we thought we'd change it to to WOLO - we only live once! Life is a blessing and we need to enjoy it doing the things we love, with the ones we love.
We are looking for anyone who can offer a service to a family going through cancer treatment - whether it be a beauty treatment, childcare, legal service, counselling, gardening or a meal - literally anything! We hope to fund these through the charity - we don't expect you to offer them for free. We just want to build up the awareness of what we want to do and work with local businesses to help make a difference to the lives of local families going through cancer.
We would also like you to be able to nominate any families you think may benefit from our help. Please message us if you have someone in mind.
If anyone has any experience of charity work or registering a charity, we would love your help!
If you're interested in fundraising to help us to help local families, you can donate here. Once the charity is all set up, we will change this crowdfunding page to a charitable donation page.
If you could start hashtagging #WOLO that'd be great - if you manage to snap a WOLO experience with your family, or if you see any inspiring posts/photos or quotes that would be fantastic! Follow our story on Facebook @wolofoundation Instagram @wolofoundation Twitter wolofoundation
Thank you so much!

To all of our wonderful supporters, Wolo have now been approved to receive Gift Aid on our donations, so we now have our very own landing page on JustGiving. We have been advised to close this page and start a new one - meaning we cannot transfer our total across :-( However the option to add Gift Aid to a donation will make a huge difference to us as a registered charity. This page will close shortly. Here is the new link - https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Wolofoundation Thank you all for your continued support. Fler & Justin Wolo
