Weʼre raising £2,500 to help XaXa Mason complete Postgraduate training to become a Child Psychotherapist (working with children using art).
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.
I'm a female artist (painter and musician). Half-way (6 months) through the first year of a fantastic post-graduate course in Child and Adolescent psycotherapy at Terapia in North London, I have sadly been told that the previously promised funding is no longer available to me due to a sudden family crisis.
I am struggling to sell my work and have also been busy caring for an unwell parent ( my mum has Alzheimers) and volunteering as a drug recovery worker.. Frustratingly, I am ineligible for government loans or grants -though I have thoroughly researched them all, and although I am applying for extra work as an online tutor to raise the needed funds, time is now very tight and I'm so worried I'll be thrown off the course after all my hard work. Any help gratefully received!

About the fundraiser
I'm an artist (painter, please see www.xaxamason.com). I have also spent the last year volunteering as a drug recovery worker in North London. This course fulfills a lifelong dream to work with troubled children.
