Weʼve raised £600 to 'Your Voice' - a charity that supports the supporters of Mental Health.
- Funded on Monday, 11th November 2019
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.
Approximately one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. This means that, even if it's not you, it's someone you know. Maybe someone you love. By the year 2030 it's estimated that there will be 2 million more adults affected by Mental Health problems than there were in 2013. A stark indication that the problem isn't going away!
My vision is to start a charity which, not only supports people affected by Mental Health issues, but supports the small charities that support them. Thankfully, there are now various established organisations that are working to provide emotional support for MH In Cornwall.But these need funding & that's not easy. With so many charities now live, & our high streets saturated with charity shops, the funding pool is stretched. This is why I want to create 'YOUR VOICE.'
Your Voice needs a home. It needs a donation drop off point, & a shop to get us started on our fundraising journey. It needs you! This is your chance to make a huge impact. To help us give people a voice & support them. The long term goal is to eventually be able to fund a centre that offers resources to help support the Mental Health community. Resources such as:
A gym. Exercise is a recognised tool for helping to alleviate mental health symptoms.
Counselling - both one to one sessions, & group meetings.
Work shops - To help boost confidence AND provide social experiences.
A Cafe - Somewhere to sit, drink, eat & fund a friendly face.
Obviously that's a long way down the road, but it's a goal. And one that needs us to get the shop up and running. So please, please support us. A fiver, a tenner, or even the price of a coffee. It will all help us to get this charity off of the ground & start making a difference.
