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. Thank you,Anna and Marcus X Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
Bonjour ou bonsoir à tous ! Je m'appelle Camille, et malgré mon prénom très connu, je ne suis pas banale ! Depuis toujours, je dois me déplacer en fauteuil roulant, ce qui ne me rend pas malheureuse, vraiment ! Et ne m'empêche pas d'être une petite globe trotteuse à roulettes :) Canada, Angleterre, châteaux, montagnes, Alsace, campagne, Suisse, Italie, Espagne, Portugal, pistes cyclables, salons automobile, Supercross, musées, expos, tout me va ! Depuis très longtemps, j'envisage de partir vivre et travailler quelques temps à l'étranger, en Angleterre plus particulièrement!Seulement voilà, une chose m'handicape pour de vrai cette fois-ci : j'ai besoin d'un nouveau fauteuil roulant plus fiable, moins vieux, pour continuer mon chemin tout droit vers l'aventure et l'indépendance. L'acquisition de nouvelles jambes est très coûteuse. Cela va faire un an que je suis en pleines démarches pour un soutien financier... qui ne comprend souvent qu'un tiers du prix d'origine de mon fauteuil et du matériel nécessaire à mes capacités motrices : 3444 euros. Il me restera environ 2000 euros à verser d'ici quelques semaines, et il m'est impossible de faire cela toute seule... Je crois profondément en la générosité humaine et c'est pourquoi je vous demande votre aide ! 2 euros + 2 euros = mon éternelle gratitude, et, si vous me donnez votre adresse, une jolie carte postale (ou virtuelle, comme vous préférez) personnalisée de mon fauteuil et moi en pleine vadrouille! Nous voyagerons ensemble :) Je vous remercie d'avance pour votre solidarité !Je vous embrasse aussi 😚
Hello and thanks for coming by. My name is Lexy, and the adorable pup by my side 24/7 is Jaxx. About three years ago I was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition, called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I have the most common type of Hypermobile EDS. It's a horrible, multi-systemic condition that wreaks havoc on the sufferer, and can affect any number of things throughout the body. For me, personally, I experience a lot of pain and joint subluxations (partial dislocations) and often, full dislocations. While living in the US I had sought treatment to find out why my neck was so constantly painful, why I had trouble supporting my head upright, and why I almost constantly had a headache, that was only relieved by laying down. While in the Us, I was also diagnosed with Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, Chiari malformation and we still suspect Mast Cell activation syndrome. With few answers, and a need to return home and escape my troubled marriage, I left the US. Upon returning home, shortly before Christmas, I started slipping in and out of consciousness. It was so quick and successive that I was unable to tell anyone what was happening or reach out for help. My blood pressure was tanking but we did not know why. I sought answers from doctors, neurologists and neurosurgeon team at Queen's square, I was sent for a supine MRI upon which they told me that I did have Chiari but that it was ''not symptomatic'' because of it's size. Initially, I accepted these answers, why would they not be correct? But my condition declined further and after an incident with my University bed collapsing, I was left unable to lift my head from my pillow due to extreme pain and dizziness. I almost missed Christmas with my family as I was unable to travel for a two week period leading up to Christmas day. I was frustrated and desperate to know what was going on. I emailed a doctor in Spain, a specialist within our EDS community and found the price for a consultation. In between raising that money and sending my imaging off, I started falling unconscious when lowering my head down. I attended the A&E in Barnet, where I was discharged because they couldn't work out why this was happening. By the time I sent my images and received my report, my speech was impaired, fatigue was running rampant, and the period of time in which I can remain upright has greatly lessened (about two hours at a time without a break). My gait, breathing and eyesight are all impaired, sporadically too. I opened the report expecting a few levels of my neck needing to be fused, what I read was shocking. My neck is very unstable, I have little to no spinal fluid flow. I was diagnosed with Chiari malformation and recommended a decompression surgery for those symptoms and the csf flow, Cervical cranial instability and Antalo-axial instability. What this means for me is that I need my whole neck fused, hard. On the 8th of July I flew out, accompanied by my best friend, to Barcelona to have further imaging and meet with my surgeon. It was confirmed that I do need these surgeries urgently, or I will simply continue to decline at the rapid rate I have been. I have been given a rough estimate of 50,000 gbp, and understandable, this isn't change I can grab from the sofa cushions, I need help to save my life. That isn't easy to say. Things have deteriorated rapidly since the bed incident, slipping in and out of conciousness, I lost control of my bladder and my spo2 stats drop frequently to below 90. I am terrified of how far I can decline, and what my body can come back from. So please, if you have anything to spare, please consider helping. Frequently asked questions: - Why wont the NHS fund this - The NHS have a few reasons, the first is that they don't like operating on people with connective tissue issues, due to the potential complications and risks we pose. They also dispute, despite numerous success stories, that the surgery is beneficial. They don't have a surgeon qualified
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.

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 my pot,this funding is for my dad, he has only a few months to live due to a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumour. My dad has always been strong and never sick or sorry, he’s worked all his adult life, he leant me £100,000 to buy my house and without warning he developed a terminal brain tumour, he’s so upset because he went to claim on his life insurance for his house but the small print states they don’t pay out if you have less than 18 months on your mortgage, he’s terminally ill and Barclays life insurance has conned him out of final peace of mind to secure my mums future without him.all I ask is if as many people as possible donate £1 we might just stop my dad worrying about my mums finances when he’s gone.i can’t express how much this would mean to my dad.Thank you so much for reading xxx

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.

Welcome to the Frankie FundMy cousin, Luke, and his fiance, Gemma, have recently been informed of the worst news a parent could ever hear, absolutely heartbreaking news that their youngest son, Frankie Garbett, has been diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, a form of Cancer of the eye. I have set up this 'Frankie Fund' to help raise money to be put towards the family getting to the Birimingham Childrens Hospital for Frankies treatments, parking, fuel and food on the day etc etc, Luke won't always be able to make it into work and ofcourse the list goes on with the costs linked with this situation. There are a lot of expenses involved with this and I want them to have one less worry. Our little Frankie also has two big brothers who's lives will be compramised whilst Frank is fighting this horrible, horrible disease. I aim to raise some money so they can have a holiday away or some new toys etc! This family deserve a treat and I couldn't be more proud of them all and their positive attitude dispite the nightmare this news is. Luke and Gemma have been together for as long as I can remember and they are so strong and they are such inspirational parents. And when your baby is sick they are sick too with worry and stress and pain of seeing someone they love fight this horrible disease. They have been engaged for some time now and although this is all very fresh and there is a long road ahead I had the idea of raising hopefully a large ammount of money to put towards them getting married. Them having a day with all of their family and friends and celebrating their love and having a day of happiness to share with everyone close to them. I hope Frankies story has enlightened you to how unexplainably cruiel life can be at times and how it throws unexpected hurdles at you. To even think a child below 2, our baba Frankie, has to go through this is just so, so cruel. I pray and hope that our Frankie will take well to his treatments and get through this with the love and support of his family and friends and keep laughing and playing every day and that this beuatiful family can make memories of happiness with the money I can hopefully raise. Thank you Helen xxx Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you would like, it is very appricated!* All payments are secure
Hi i'm Andy, I currently work as a Medic on an Emergency Ambulance which I have done for nearly seven years now. I am also a Commercial Drone Pilot and I love being creative. I'm trying to turn my life around and give myself a brighter future with more stability and happiness. I'm hoping generous people like yourself will help me keep the dream alive.So the idea I had was to merge my two passions into one, so i created a new company called Action Medi-Drone Ltd. Unfortunately I currently don't have the capital to get it up and running due to the extensive costs of the equipment.My vision, is to be able to provide experienced and professional medical staff those who need medical cover for all types of events, up to supplying the medics for tv and film productions. As a commercial drone pilot, i could also produce cinematic aerial photography and videography for weddings, residential, industrial, sporting events, estate agents, agricultural for crop yields and vegetation maintenance, tv commercials, tv series and the film industry. Your amazing donations will go towards buying professional defibrillators similar to the ones we use on the Ambulances, so we can do ECG's and start treating patients accordingly and organise the neccessary pathway to help save time and ultimately their life. We also need suction units, resuscitation equipment, medical gases and emergency medical drugs and consumables i.e. bandages, ice packs, masks, burns kits etc.Some of the donations will go towards buying our professional drone with camera and batteries etc. This has been a dream of mine for a long time. Unfortunately the banks and government are not in a position to help me fund this dream.To say a big thank you for supporting me, all those who donate and request to use one of our services, would get a huge discount on your initial invoice.I would like to say in advance, a huge thank you to everyone from the bottom on my heart for helping keep the dream alive.

Giving funding for my Health Fondation is for you because you are supporting a friend, relative or colleague with fibromyalgia pain. My foundation will be an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK and around the world. The business has social, charitable or community-based objectives, which will be set up as a charity or health foundation that helps people or communities (a ‘social enterprise’).Many people from the UK community suffering from fibromyalgia pain and its associated symptoms need help and support to help them improve their quality of life and give them much more independence. As I do not have the funds for this I want you to help me by crowdfunding. Let's all help me start the fibromyalgia health foundation. Our communities are a wonderful people, and I really want the community to be able to have the freedom they deserve.The funding will go directly to start the fibromyalgia health foundation and I will be able to use the funding for building a website, software, equipment, operating office, training staff, materials, stock, heat and power, digital printing equipment, employment wages and national insurance, insurance, purchasing a motor, motor expenses, post, printing, stationery, professional fees, repair, marketing and advertisings, telephone fibre broadband, creating jobs, developing the economy, supporting the advancement of independent scientific and medical research on topics related to ibromyalgia pain and its associated symptoms among other things in order that I can reach the target.The chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia, including tender trigger points, tenderness, morning stiffness, aching joints, muscle pain, chronic headaches, unending back pain, neck pain, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. Research has shown that people with fibromyalgia have reduced blood flow to parts of the brain that normally help the body deal with pain.The severe overwhelming feelings leads to irritability, exhaustion, anxiety, social isolation, and depression.We want funding to conduct a research and a programme of utilising herbal medicines into effective drugs, alternative treatments which people suffering from fibromyalgia pain and its other associated symptoms should be able to find good relief of symptoms.People will be informed consumers and learn how to make wise health decisions.
