Support These Wonderful Birds

Support the Eagle Club of Estonia and help protect these wonderful birds!* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure The Eagle Club of Estonia (Kotkaklubi) is a non-governmental organisation whose members have studied, observed and protected black storks, white tailed eagles, spotted eagles, ospreys, golden eagles and many more species for decades. Currently, the Eagle Club comprises 26 members. They include specialists in ornithology and nature conservation, foresters, and enthusiasts of nature and bird protection. Their primary objective is to guarantee the survival of endangered birds.http://www.kotkas.ee/en Kotkaklubi promotes the principles of nature-friendly management of forests and agriculture. They also ring juvenile birds, place transmitters on several young and adult birds, build artificial nest platforms if needed, and take care of injured animals. In order to increase public awareness, they installed webcams and microphones on various nests. The Eagle Club has an ever-growing fan club for these webcams, and every year new people from all over the world join the ranks of observers. Always with the aim to transmit better images and sound to all of us, the Eagle Club pays a lot of attention to the quality of those cameras.http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/ All activities of the Eagle Club are voluntary, so they depend on the financial support of many projects and the donations of various organisations and private persons. Unfortunately, this support does not include some very necessary expenses.Currently, the Eagle Club is looking for support to their webcams.The regular replacement of components of the equipment needed to broadcast images is a cost that is not yet sponsored. In order to help the Eagle Club, we – forum members Jo, Anne and Kaori – decided to start this fundraising. We had the idea to write – and illustrate – a popular, yet factual book about the life of a black stork named Karl, a fascinating bird you can currently observe here:http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=924 We have put a lot of love, time and energy into this book. A test-reader said: “It is a well-written story full of adventure, interesting facts and lovely illustrations.”We really hope you will enjoy it too!  Anyone who donates 10 € or more will be rewarded with a free copy of this digital book. Within two days at the latest, a secure download link will be sent to the email address that you mention with your transaction on Leetchi.Many thanks! Small Print: For ease of administration, our fund-raising website is being organised by a member of the support group, Josephine Coleman, who will receive any funds on behalf of the project. The accounting will be overseen by two witnesses.

The Letchworth Garden City Home Education Hub

The Letchworth Garden City Home Education Hub

Welcome to the LGCHE HUB 1 year Venue Hire Fundraiser!Click to make a contribution.* Make a min donation of £16.35.* All payments are secure Welcome! Did you know that in the UK parents have the legal choice between choosing to have their children educated in a school or at home? Did you also know that parents that exercise this right get absolutely no financial support? Yes...it's true. The reasons for choosing to home educate are very varied. There are families who have children with special educational needs (SEN), children who have struggled in school due to social problems, emotional and academic needs not being met, religious reasons, or just because it’s the right choice for the individual child and family’s needs, learning abilities and lifestyle. Styles of home education are also as varied as the reasons for home educating. These range from following the UK government curriculum, to other educational styles like Montessori or Steiner, which are accredited, private school methods of teaching. Or a mix of different styles adapted to suit the individual child. The problem is, that those who home educate do not get any government funding or financial help, despite the fact they actually save the government money by providing an education for their children themselves. This means that home education communities are often very supportive of each other and Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire are two of the UKs busiest and biggest home education communities. The Letchworth Garden City Home Education Hub is a group of local home educators based in Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire UK that need your help. LGCHE HUB is a place where parents can meet and support each other, where children can make friends, where parents can share resources and ideas, run educational and skill base workshops that will support local home educated children. There are presently no groups in our local area that support Home Educated children's needs, Home Educators, or parents considering this choice for their children especially in the early years. We need you to help change this! All our activities will be supported by parents taking their turn each week to volunteer their time/skills/resources when they can to ensure our Hub's content. We need 100 payments of £16.35 to cover our venue rental charge for 1 year, can you help us? We desperately need your help to secure a space where Home Educated Children can be supported in the way they have the right to be. Please share this with your friends family. Thank you for your time. (Min donation of £16.35.)  MAKE A DONATION AS A HOME EDUCATOR: (Member Donation)Anyone that will be, considering too, or just would like to visit on occasion as they hold a Home Education interest and think they would like to attend either once in a while, once a month or once a week is considered a member. Receive a 100% free family entry pass to LGCHE HUB for 1 year (until our Christmas holiday closing date Friday 23rd November 2018) and enjoy free fun activities & workshops every week for all the family. (Min donation of £16.35.) MAKE A DONATION AS A HOME EDUCATOR: (None Member Donation)Anyone that is a home educator that cannot attend but would like to support this cause is considered a non member donator. Your support is greatly appreciated. We really can't thank you enough! The home educators of our little community in Letchworth welcome all support from our U.K H.E. Community and beyond,  together planting  more positive flags for Home Education.(Min donation of £16.35.) MAKE A DONATION AS PRIVATE DONATOR/BUSINESS/ORGANISATION:Any member of the public wishing to make a donation to support LGCHE HUB is considered a private donator.(Min donation of £16.35.) £532.76 has been paid to our venueWe need just 23 payment s of £16.35 to meet our target so please keep supporting!

Kasia's Wake Up Call

Kasia's Wake Up Call

Lovely generous people! Welcome to our money pot for Kasia's recovery and treatments.With the humour Kasia's is famous for we called it "Wake Up Call" because this is what we need her to do: WAKE UP!  And we hope that with your help she soon will.  Our friend had a brain stroke while in Poland to visit her family during Easter holidays. She was supposed to be back in Iceland where she was happily living with her wife to be Anabel, and about to start a degree in Photography, instead she is still in Plock (Poland), lying unconscious in a hospital bed.(the image you see is part of her portfolio https://www.banaszekatarzyna.com/solitude she was about to exhibit in Reykjavick shortly).  All of her friends from different parts of Europe are mobilizing themselves in order to collect money and support to help Kasia's family paying for rehabilitation care so deeply needed by Kasia after the extensive stroke.  The haemorrhage in her brain might have caused damages that we still don't know and won't until she wakes up and therefore is vital for us to do anything we can to make this happen as soon as possible.  She has been operated on and although she has been taken off the danger list, her chances of coming back to full strenghts are slim if we don't do something. Fast.  Kasia is so many things for so many people. For Anable is the person she thought of marrying in a few months and that now is the reason why she is back in Iceland to press delete on their life to move back to Poland to deal with this tragic event. For us friends, acquaintances spread amongst England, Poland and Iceland Kasia is a beautiful soul, generous person, talented photographer and funny funny funny 26 years old girl who just does not deserve this.  YEAR OF TREATMENT COSTS ABOUT £70,000. IN KASIA'S CASE WE NEED TO COVER SEVERAL YEARS, SO DON'T BE SHY ;)!  From Kasia's website : )  In 2010 I finished Public High School in my hometown Plock in Poland. In 2012 I started to study photography in two-year art school but I don't have higher education after that. But I've got a diploma!​When it comes to photography jobs- my biggest achievement is working as a photographer shooting packshots in online sex shop called (in translation) "Island of Pleasure". Other then this wonderful thing I did some time in a little marketing agency as a photographer for everything. Later I was forced to change profession and I became some kind of manager in a bakery shop but I was the only one working there.​​Since July 2016 I'm living on Iceland and couldn't be happier.   Thank you to everyone who will contribute, share, talk or think about our lovely Kasia.   Peace out!

The Hanley's family appeal 4 Lyme disease

The Hanley's family appeal 4 Lyme disease

welcome to The Hanley's family appeal 4 Lyme disease my names Lauren and my partners called Andrew and we both have chronic Lyme disease .our 17 year old son has just been tested also and he now has Lyme disease and it's suspected in our two girls ages 3 & 15.We are a family in real need of your support, so I hope you can spare a few minutes reading our appeal . Lyme disease is caused by the infectious bacterium borrelia burgdorferi which is potentially deadly if left and comes with many other co infections that are just as complex as Lyme disease. we are kindly asking for your help for much needed funding for private treatment as the NHS sadly can't help us. we got funded by a charity called lyme aid uk as we couldn't afford to have the private tests done for Lyme and our blood tests was sent to germany labs.the NHS testing for Lyme disease is less than 50% sensitivity and missed we had Lyme, like they are missing loads of people .our germany tests at armin labs are 95% sensitivity and they are top specialist laboratorys in tick borne diseases. both myself and partners test results from germany come back possitive for lyme disease and now our sons! the NHS have refused to treat our Lyme disease or except our private results. Leaving us to get sicker and worried for what the future may bring,with no ways of getting any help without paying out for it our selfs. sadly this is a very big problem for many lyme patients trying to get help in the UK as the NHS testing is missing many people and not helping if they test private for this potentially deadly disease .Lyme disease also is a great mimicker of many autoimmune diseases, as listed below.  Myself and partner now have chronic lyme disease and I have a lesion on my brain with lots of neurological symptoms (neurological Lyme) and it's now in my nervous system causing lots of numbness and weakness and tingling.My partner has angina and a blood clotting disorder in his eyes, we believe this is because it has been left so long and now infected his heart as Lyme disease is well known for . He has really bad skin and sores on his leg that looks like it's badly infected. Lyme and co does causes lots of skin complaints in many, I also have pustule psoriasis on soles of feet and hands this could well be linked to my Lyme also.  I have been recently been diagnosed with thyroid hashimotos disease,that lead me to Lyme disease and then my family become involved!many it seems have thyroid and heart issues with Lyme disease. Lyme is progressive in stages if you don't have treatment then it can be fatal! We have had this missed for many years and bad health as a result of this, but the last 3 years have been the worst for us and progressing .  My partner got a re-infection bite about 4 years ago, hence why we think our little girl is displaying more for her age than our son or daughter did at her age. It's very complex to understand.  We suspect our son has been born with it so this is called congenital Lyme disease this is what's suspected in our girls too.There isn't any help even on this from the NHS as there needs to be more scientific research done .  Myself and partner both have many other autoimmune diseases between us some including arthritis- AS -osteoarthritis, I have crohn's disease etc that's been labeled over the years and we have about 10 suspected co infections that Germany labs did a check list on us. Our oldest son has dyslexia- ADD -irlen syndrome and Lyme disease with a number of symptoms and is not feeling well most days now and very fatigued aching in pain and tingling sensations in body , he has a high red and white blood count being investigated. He had a bad case of glandular fever last year which is mononucleosis Caused by EBV (Epstein -Barr virus ) this is a co infection that comes with Lyme disease. He was taken to A&E and given IV fluids and treatment.   Our 15 year old daughter has had bad patches of depression and some sleeping issues mild fatigue and Hyperactive

Jim's FtM mammectomy

Jim's FtM mammectomy

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can donate to a cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!   This introduction being done by leetchi.com, let's talk about why I have created this money pot.I will first of all define the key words and then introduce myself and my project. This description will have a English version and a French version. EN: Mammectomy: It is the medical term for the surgical removal of one or both breasts, partially or completely.FR : Mammectomie : Terme médical pour une ablation d'un ou des deux seins, partiellement ou complètement. EN: FtM (Female to Male): individual identifying as male who was assigned female at birth.FR : FtM (Female vers Male): individu s'identifiant en tant qu'homme et a qui on a assigné "féminin" à la naissance.  ENGLISH VERS. I am Jim, a 23 years old FtM transgender. I am from France and I am studying management. I really love sailing and swimming. I would really love to love someone.The issue is, I cannot fulfill the last two statements.As a FtM transgender person, the disconfort I have towards my breast is increasing and I cannot think about practicing the sports I love anymore.Moreover, the following quote is completely accurate for me 'If you can't love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?' (-RuPaul). I do not love my body because it isn't mine. I am a man and I crave for the body which will match who I really am. It has become unbearable and I cannot wait for the mammectomy to be done. By participating, no matter how much you will give, it will contribute to my journey to freedom and Life.I intend to be operated by one of the best surgeon in France for this operation. Before next year, I need to gather 5,000 euros to be eligible. This corresponds to approximatively £4,440 or $6,170. Help me making this year the last one to live like a caterpillar and the next one to transform myself into a beautiful and free butterfly.  Thank you so much! Have a wonderful day, evening, night. Jim Lurion VERSION FRANÇAISE : Je m'appelle Jim, j'ai 23 ans et je suis un homme transgenre. Je viens de France, de Bretagne plus précisément et j'étudie le management. J'adore vraiment faire de la voile et nager. J'aimerais beaucoup aimer quelqu'un. Le problème étant que je ne peux satisfaire ces deux dernières informations. En tant que personne transgenre, le malaise que je ressens concernant ma poitrine ne cesse d'augmenter et l'idée de pratiquer un des sports cités précédemment n'est même plus envisageable. De la même manière, voici une citation qui me correspond parfaitement : "Si tu ne peux t'aimer toi-même, comment es-tu supposé pouvoir aimer quelqu'un d'autre?" (-RuPaul). Je n'aime pas mon corps car ce n'est pas le mien. Je suis un homme et je ne rêve que d'une chose, c'est de voir mon corps être en adéquation avec qui je suis vraiment. S'est devenu insupportable et j'ai vraiment hâte que la mammectomie soit faite.En participant à cette cause, peu importe combien vous me donnerez, cela contribuera à mon long voyage vers la liberté et la Vie. J'ai l'intention de me faire opérer par l'un des meilleurs chirurgiens de France pour cette opération. Avant l'année prochaine, je devrai rassembler la somme de 5000 euros afin de pouvoir prétendre à l'opération. Cela correspond à environ 4440 livres ou encore 6170 dollars US. Aidez-moi à faire de cette année la dernière à vivre comme une petite chenille et l'année 2019 à me transformer en un beau papillon, libre.   Merci énormément! Je vous souhaite une excellente journée, soirée ou nuit. Jim Lurion

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can donate to a cause* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you! The Stories of those who died in the Great War from the Parish of Fulflood & Weeke, Winchester  November 11, 2018 will mark the centenary of the Armistice that finally silenced the guns in the Great War. Up and down the country, in what will undoubtedly be deeply poignant commemorative services, communities will remember the hundreds of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in a conflict that is still etched on our national psyche. Fulflood and Weeke in Winchester will be no exception. The churches of St. Paul and St. Matthew contain memorials to no fewer than 91 men from the parish who went off to war never to return and they will be remembered at services in November. Although these men died more than a century ago their stories are only now being retold thanks to the efforts of a local research group. Over the past three years the researchers have worked to build up a picture of the lives of the parish’s war dead – where they lived and worked, where they went to school, their families, and, of course, where they fought and died. The stories we have glimpsed have been moving and fascinating. Young men from the streets of Fulflood, Weeke and elsewhere in Winchester went to fight and die not only on the Western Front but also at Gallipoli, Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and even Russia. Winchester, of course, was a garrison town so many joined those regiments based here – the Hampshires, the Rifle Brigade and the King’s Royal Rifles. Others served in the Royal Navy and the fledgling air force. Men from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and East Africa with family connections in the parish, volunteered to fight for the “Mother Country” and their names are remembered on the memorials. One of these men had been on Captain Scott’s final expedition to Antarctica in 1912 and was to die in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Many schools where the men went to are still here. Several went as infants to Western School, then in Elm Rd, and onto St. Thomas School in Mews Lane, which was eventually amalgamated into Kings’ School. There, they are remembered on the St. Thomas School Memorial Board. Some went onto Peter Symond’s Grammar School, now the Sixth Form College, and they too have a memorial board. Some went to prep schools and onto public schools such as Winchester College where they are also remembered. Some schools they attended no longer exist, for example, St. Peter’s in Chesil Street - but their records do. The time has now come to make their stories accessible to all interested people and aspects of this will take money! * The most expensive item will be to publish a book of their stories which we aim to have available by Remembrance Sunday, on the 11th November this year.* We also plan to have portable permanent exhibition boards which can be displayed in:* St. Mathew’s and St. Paul’s, the churches of the parish of Fulflood & Weeke.* Local schools* Hampshire Record Office & the Discovery Centre* Community halls* Relevant military museums & local military bases* Creation of a website with all the information on it which will have an element of interrogation for example, do any of the men live in your street?* We hope further that:* Teaching resources will be created in liaison with local schools. Many current pupils in Winchester, especially at Western, Westgate and Peter Symmond's, may live in houses that were once the homes of these men.* A programme of Public Lectures & Guided Tours will happen.Long-term, we also hope to tell the stories of all the men who went to fight in World Wars I & II but that is not part of the current project. We do hope that you find this a worthwhile cause to contribute to.You can further help if you think you are related to any of the men and even have relevant photographs.

Kellie’s Last Hope

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can support a personal fundraising campaign* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you! Hello my name is Kellie I never thought I would be in this position but I am going to lose everything I ever worked for since I was 21.I am going to lose my home and need to pay my remaining mortgage fee and don’t have the money to do this and my eviction date is very soon. The date of my mortgage is up this year and the remaining amount I can’t afford as I’m unemployed and a carer for my father and no payments were being made I will lose my home. I have a shared ownership so I only pay half mortgage half rent to housing association, which I still have to pay rent now.  I have mental health issues and have been on medication for depression for a long time and have panic attack’s but have still worked hard but due to losing my mother to ovarian cancer I completely lost myself and lost my job and is now a carer for my dad who has bladder cancer and is slowly shutting down because he can live without mum as they were married for 60 years. I am a single parent with no family only dad and have 2 teenage children who keep me going to live everyday. I work part time for cash in hand to just get by and pay the bills. My story is not the usual help for someone with illness issues and maybe not the deserving story but it’s my story and my last hope of saving my home, my pride and my 2 children. Everyday is a day near to losing everything and my mind is not shutting down. I don’t sleep at night with the worry.  Any donations will be paid to the lender and confirmation of this will be sent to all people that donate. Thank you for your time and reading this.
