Welcome to this money pot!Eleanor was diagnosed with bone cancer and, sadly, at the beginning of October 2017, had to have part of her leg removed. Throughout the whole of the ordeal, Eleanor and her family have been incredibly brave in how they have dealt with the news and we wanted to help them out in any way we can. So, to support Eleanor and her family, a few of us have decided to hold a ‘charitable’ year of fundraising to assist with this transition, to run from November 2017 to November 2018. We are hoping to hold a different, exciting event every month for the whole year. This will start with a raffle next month, where winners will be able to claim some fantastic prizes, in addition, there will be various challenges undertaken where sponsorship will be sought. For the slightly less energetic, a summer tea party is also planned. The fundraising year will culminate in November 2018 with a grand ball. Any further support would be greatly appreciated and if you have any further ideas, or are already doing something and are looking for a charitable cause to link this to, please consider using Think Pink for Eleanor Be warned though, as the title suggests there will be lots of pink involved……..and sparkles and glitter!
Sophia had her first seizure at 5 weeks old and was diagnosed with epilepsy at 6 weeks old. She has had so many blood tests, a lumbar puncture, MRI, ECG, EEG scans and more. On her 6 week birthday we saw our baby girl being sedated so she could have an MRI scan to check there was no brain damage. Thankfully there isn't. At 4 months we were in hospital for 2 weeks due to the number of seizures she was having, resulting in her being too tired and weak to feed. We left hospital with Sophia being so weak she could no longer hold her head up unaided, she was so unhappy and spent most of the days sleeping. At 9 months we got Sophia's genetic results back and unfortunately she has a refractory genetic epilepsy with a mutation of the SCN8A gene resulting in delayed development. We have been told she may never walk or talk. She has just turned 1 and is still unable to sit unaided, walking and talking is still unknown. We want Sophia to have the best chance possible at having some sort of 'normal' life and need to give her care and treatment to push her and help her development. This isn't cheap, we have already spent nearly £2,000 on treatment and need her to have more. If you have read this and want to help we appreciate every single penny donated to help Sophia to develop as much as possible.

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!I’m trying to raise money for an appointment at Gendercare in London to get clearance to start HRT (hormone replacement therapy). With a potential two year NHS wait on the horizon, I decided to go private, because I’ve been waiting eight years for this and I don’t think i can wait another two years on top of that. EDIT: I’m so amazed by how fast I hit my goal, THANK YOU to everyone who donated. In light of this, I’m extending the goal, and everything I raise past the initial cost is going into a fund for top surgery. Thank you, once again. If you decide to donate, don’t worry, Leetchi is 100% secure. To everyone that donates, even if it’s just a few £, thank you. You’re rockstars.
Bonjour à tous, Mme Benab*** est une jeune maman tunisienne atteinte d'un cancer de sein. L'opération et les séances de chimio faites en Tunisie lui ont permi de s'améliorer puis vite rechuter. Après sa rechute, elle était obligée de se déplacer à Nice pour se soigner dans un hopital spécialisé (Centre Antoine Lacassagne). Elle est hospitalisée en France depuis 5 mois, et depuis le 14 mars 2018, elle devrait réaliser 25 séances de radiothérapie. La somme totale de ces soins (y compris les coûts de préparation) s'èlèvent à 5400€ à verser à l'hopital, sachant qu'elle n'est pas couverte par la sécurité sociale et que la durée de son séjour en France a été dépassée, ce qui complexifie encore sa situation. L'hopital ne commencera les séances que si elle donne au minimum 1200€. Et elle peine à collecter cette somme. Je précise qu'elle a réalisé une mastectomie totale d'un sein. Son fils de 2 ans et demi, bouleversé par la maladie de sa maman n'arrive pas à reprendre le courant de sa vie normal. Il ne se sépare plus d'elle. A ceux qui pourront aider cette maman à collecter la somme de 5400€ (rien que les frais des séances de radiothérapie) par n'importe quel montant possible, votre générosité sera récompensée un jour ou l'autre et elle n'oublira jamais, ainsi que sa famille votre don. Baraka allahou fikom w fi awledkom w Rabbi yja3alahou fi mizan 7asanetkom. Pour toute demande sur des détails complémentaires, vous pouvez poser vos questions à l'adresse suivante: NadiaMsk123@[gmaill].com
2018 is a very special year.Not only is it the 15th Birthday of Haven House Children's Hospice, where I work as a fundraiser (they have supported over 900 children with life limited conditions and their families since opening in 2003), it is also 100 years since some women first won the vote in the UK. The Fawcett Society are a brilliant charity that continue to fight for gender equality. I pledge to a year of fundraising for these two special causes. Starting off with the International Women’s Day virtual 10k in March and Brighton Marathon in April and finishing with the Verona Marathon in November, I'll also be doing a few other bits along the way. I'm pledging to join Haven House #Team15 and the Fawcett Society #OurTimeNow movement! Unfortunately I can't find an online giving platform that allows me to fundraise for them both at the same time, so I'm using leetchi, which collects all donations in a pot and then I will split the funds raised and donate to each charity.

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
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
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!My name is Andria Paphitis and I am partially sighted in my right eye.i was born with a cataract, squint and nystagmus. The nystagmus is in both eyes unfortunately. I had the cataract removed when I was 3 months old but it left me with only 5% vision but it does no help because how much it has been drifted inwards facing toward my nose by the squint.this affects my left eye a lot because it puts a strain in my vision as it is trying to work double the time because of the loss of vision in the right eye. I have had several cosmetic operations regarding the squint because it has a big impact in my daily life. I feel very uncomfortable in my self and ashamed of it that I have to cover it up like I am a pirate or something because I just hate the look of it. Makes me feel like I am a freak. The squint operations did no help because the eye is so weak and the stem cells aren’t connected to the brain because they were damaged with the cataract they had to be removed too as well as the lense. I really would like to feel like a normal human and be confident for once in my life. I am now 20 years of age and still ‘til this day feel like a freak. I need to raise money to book for a private surgery to be proceeded on my right eye to either get a transplant of some sort or at least straighten the eye so it looks as if I can see and it won’t be such an issue for the appearance and I wouldn’t feel ashamed and won’t have to cover my eye with my fringe like an odd person. Would be so so lovely if you could help me raise as much as possible to make this a reality and not just a hopeless dream. Thank you you for taking your time to read this, if you would like to know more about my story please email me at and I will answer any questions you may have. Thanks again ! lets get raising!!!!

Welcome to our page Our aim is to provide long term peer support for individuals whom have enduring mental health conditions. Long term mental health conditions gain support when the individual relapses but this support eases and the individual is expected to manage their recovery, this often leaves individuals isolated and house bound unsure how to seek support and companionship. Becoming socially withdrawn and isolation isnt the intention of the invidiual but a coping strategy to prevent issues arising. This not only affects the individuals mental health but can have impacts on their social wellbeing, physical health as well as their financial situation. Our aim is to provide a support network with individuals whom have experience in a range of different mental health conditions, with a variety of expereince whom can help support other individuals thoughout their long term recovery. Providing the support allows us to monitor the wellbeing of invidiuals and assist them in seeking any assistance which may be required to prevent relapses from occuring. Funds raised thought this will allow us to find a range of places throughout our district so we can reach a larger audiance, provide a online community, day trips and organise events allowing our members to interact with each other providing mutual support and companionship.
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! Project aimI want to start a charity for PTSD sufferers in the UK - there currently isn't one for non-veterans! I'm looking for funds to pay for the basics in setting up a charity(companies house registration, domain purchase and hosting for website etc.) to allow me to begin the important work of fundraising. The main aim for the charity will be to raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the UK.About the projectHello there!For the past 4-5 months or so, I've been battling with the huge pain in the butt that is PTSD. My Post Traumatic Stress Disorder came as a result of being assaulted 2 years ago and left me with debilitating, exhausting, uncontrollable and crippling fear - stuck in the fight/flight/freeze adrenaline surge. Fear of everything, and unable to do almost anything (including just being me) without incredible effort even though the man who assaulted me will be in prison for the next 9 years. At times I've been unable to move, breathe or speak from ridiculous fear just by going about my everyday life. I developed psoriasis under my eyes from crying so much, doctors wanted to put me on beta-blockers so I didn't damage my heart from putting it under too much stress, I didn't sleep for more than an hour at a time, my muscles and joints were in agony from being tense, I'd chip my fillings out from clenching my teeth so hard without knowing and I've made life difficult for everyone around me - I wasn't me anymore, I became a highly sensitive faulty cctv system. I couldn't go out alone, but I couldn't be alone in the house either... Being off work for the last 4 months was therefore helpful, painful and awful at the same time. BUT the important part here is I'm talking in past tense!Miraculous help has come in the most odd form of psychotherapy: eye movement desensitisation reprocessing and I finished this treatment last Thursday after going private (NHS waiting list was another 6 months away!). Now I can be in an unlocked car alone, have a bath in an empty house, Play music when I'm in an empty house, go out in my garden finally and even drive with the windows down! Small things yes, but massive changes for me. I'm looking to go back to work soon and be normal me again!I'm not after sympathy, I simply feel that it's important to share this with the world: I know that there are people a lot worse off than I was but it's important for the world to know what PTSD is, how EMDR therapy can help and that it's not only people in the armed forces that can have PTSD (something I used to think). Not even my GP knew enough about it - and I'm not willing to accept a lack of knowledge for others in the same situation I was!I had a normal reaction to an abnormal situation - PTSD is considered a psychological trauma, regardless of what incident caused it and can therefore affect anybody! However, there is no PTSD charity for non-veterans in the UK!PTSD is a very misunderstood issue, which hasn't helped things for me - but I want to be able to help others. The main aim for the charity will be to raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the UK - ultimately, I'd love to be able to help fund treatment options for sufferers and advice and help for friends and family of those affected.As a sufferer myself, I'm still off work on reduced pay (so unable to fund things myself) so any funds pledged will be incredibly appreciated, and go some way to helping others in need.

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! With just 1-click you can donate to a good causeI have never asked for crowdfunding before but I feel it's my only option for the problem I have. I was born with a defect in my nasal bones, which as I entered adulthood affected my breathing to the extent of feeling like I permanently have something not just blocking my upper nostrils but it feels like something is lodged in my face. It affects my eyes, my vision and gives me frequent headaches. It is now affecting my daily life. I am a fulltime non paid carer, I do it for the love of it but it means I can't earn money easily. With the tiredness and pain my breathing causes not only can't I enjoy activities I used to, it affects my ability to be the best carer I can. I want to be full of life and energy for my loved one. It's also affected my social life. I have lost the few friends I had as I've been too ill to be a good friend to them. I'm not asking for frivolous reasons as my view in life is if a body part works properly and causes no pain I don't care what it looks like as I rather people like me for my character. Yet my nose is causing physical pain to me and causing me not to be the best person I could. My doctor will only prescribe a nasal spray which doesn't help the problem and I cannot afford private treatment. I can't bear another summer of illness. I will be eternally grateful for whatever you can spare. If a thousand or 2 thousand people could spare the price of a cup of coffee that would cover the surgery I need as the hospital I've enquired with will cost about 3 thousand pounds in total. Thank you for reading. I am grateful for whatever you can spare. * Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you!
Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! My name is Nevia-Lee and I would liketo share my story in the hope that you can help... January 12th 2018 I was involved in a serious motorway accident where a man struck my car and left me for dead. I was in the right hand lane minding my own business when I glance to my left to see a man parallel to me in the middle lane indicating to come over I mentained my speed as there was no cars in front so thought he would go in front of me, so I carried on looking ahead and continued to drive. All of a sudden he struck the side of my car twice and drove off - this sent me flying in to the central reservation metal bar my car began to spin no matter how much I had my foot on the break my car didn't stop, by the time it had it was facing oncoming cars. My car is a total write off this guy cannot ne found all we know is that it was a light blue car. The police/high way patrol and paramedics were called. I was taken to hosptal with serve whiplash back pain which lead to nerve damge so now have on and off numbing sensations to right side of my body, facial injuriy and reptured implants (which has to be removed). I am undergoing physio thrapy as I still have problems with my body and receiving counselling. I used to be bubbly outgoing confident independent you name it. Now I am left with low self esteem not confident I just feel incomplete. I aspired to be a model and had my first job the following week after my accident obviously that job did not happen. The NHS will not replace my implats and i have tried all avenues which have not worked, so you the public are my only hope. I just want to get back on my feet and live a normal life and live my dream and feel complete again please help me do this. Love Nevia-Lee 💜
