Hello, My name is Luc Brucher, I work as an Audit Partner at Deloitte Luxembourg and I have decided to challenge myself to support a good cause. My goal is to sponsor a special wheelchair designed to enable runners to push a disabled person in the chair while running. This wheelchair will be donated to Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt, who will use it for various sport activities for disabled people. Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt is a Luxembourg non-profit organization created in 1996 that offers multi-disciplinary conductive education programs for disabled children. They are convinced of the benefits of sport activities for disabled people as it boosts their self-esteem and confidence, reduces stress, and fosters positive social interactions. Here’s a picture of the chair: To complete my challenge, I need your help to gather €6500.I will run the ING Half Marathon in Luxembourg on 27 May 2017 together with my son Loris, who benefits from the excellent work provided by Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt every day. Loris’s wheelchair will be accompanied by his friends in other wheelchairs as well as Deloitte volunteers who will support us during the race. This experience will be fun, inspiring, and impactful and it would be great if you could join me in this endeavor by making a donation on this Leetchi page. Every contribution is welcome, and together we can really make an impact that matters by helping Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt and its beneficiaries. Help spread the word! The more people become aware, the more we can help support Schrëtt Fir Schrëtt. I will post regular updates about my challenge on Facebook, and you can follow me by clicking on the link below:* Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/407122482994126/Don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, and thanks in advance for your support!

Welcome to this money pot !Colin is hoping to raise money for Joey who is an adorable boy, soon to turn four. He has cerebral palsy which makes everyday activities difficult for him, such as standing and walking. Joey uses special equipment to help move around safely. He uses plastic splints on his feet to help him learn to walk, so requires certain shoes to fit over these....these shoes alone cost £40 (often requiring two pairs each time the splints are changed)!! To help Joey get stronger and progress with his therapy, his family pay for weekly private therapy sessions, and often buy therapy equipment.....all this costs a lot of money!! This page has been set up to help bless the family and show Joey that people are behind him to support all the extremely hard work he puts into his therapy each day. The money raised will be going towards his equipment and therapy. Thank you soooooooo much for giving to this little boy Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!

Help Save Yamina (Version en français sous le texte en anglais)Our little two-year-old daughter, Yamina, has a malformation of the bile duct (common bile duct cyst), and the only cure is surgery, until then, her life is at risk. We need your financial support to pay for the surgery. Surgery should be performed early in order to limit the development of fibrosis / cirrhosis or hepatic complications of the cyst, such as pancreatitis or cholangitis (biliary tract infection). The surgery involves removing of all the dilated, and likely cancerous, bile duct, and reconstructing the bile duct using an intestinal loop to reach the liver.Today we live with the fear that the disease worsens, which is likely to happen since after childhood the cyst can easily degenerate into a carcinoma. Yamina follows a strict diet (no dairy products, little or no fat, no chicken, no eggs) to prevent a possible worsening of her condition, knowing that she already had pancreatitis.As you can see in the attachments, the cost of the operation and hospitalization amount to 10,387€ (See quote attached). My husband and I are from low-income families and are employees with average incomes. Unfortunately, we do not now have the means to pay for the surgery's fees.I resumed my work few months ago because we have to pay for her care. I have to leave my daughter with her aunt, when I would have preferred to stay close to her. The professor we consulted told us that we should not wait too long to avoid complications due to this malformation (fibrosis, cirrhosis, pancreatitis, cancer). This is why we come to you today; we put our hopes in you to help us save our daughter and allow our family to resume a normal life.Thank you for your contribution, however much you can give. Rest assured that all payments made through the collection platform are secure.To donate: https://www.leetchi.com/c/solidarity-yaminaYou can contact us with any queries you may have at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.With our gratitude.Yamina's mumNotre petite fille de 2 ans, Yamina, présente une malformation des voies biliaires (kyste du cholédoque) et le seul remède pour une guérison totale est la chirurgie.La chirurgie doit être précoce afin de limiter le développement d’une fibrose/cirrhose hépatique ou des complications du kyste, comme une pancréatite ou une cholangite (infection des voies biliaires). La chirurgie comporte l’exérèse de toute la voie biliaire principale dilatée susceptible de cancériser, suivie d’une reconstruction de la voie biliaire par une anse intestinale montée vers le foie.Aujourd'hui nous vivons avec la peur que la maladie de notre enfant s’aggrave, car après l’enfance, le kyste peut dégénérez vers un carcinome. Yamina est sous régime alimentaire (pas de produit laitiers, pas de gras ou peu, pas de poulet, pas d’œufs) afin d’éviter toute aggravation de son état sachant qu’elle a déjà fait une pancréatite.Comme vous pouvez le voir dans les PJ, les frais de l'opération et de l'hospitalisation s'élève à 10 387€. Mon mari et moi sommes issus de familles modestes et sommes des salariés avec des revenus moyens, et malheureusement nous n'avons aujourd'hui pas les moyens de payer de tels frais. J'ai repris mon travail depuis plusieurs mois puisque je l'avais mis de côté pour être près de ma fille. Maintenant, je dois la laisser avec sa tante, car nous devons financer ses soins.Le professeur que nous avons consulté nous a expliqué qu’il ne fallait pas trop tarder pour éviter les complications dues à cette malformation (fibrose, cirrhose, pancréatite, cancérisation)C'est pour cela que nous venons vers vous aujourd'hui, que nous mettons nos espoirs en vous pour nous aider à sauver notre fille et permettre à notre petite famille de reprendre une vie normale.Merci pour votre contribution, quelle qu'elle soit. Sachez aussi que tous les payements fait à travers la plateforme de collecte sont sécurisés. Vous pouvez nous contacter à l'adresse mail: helpsaveyamin
“You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” This anonymous quote has centred my education and further career. The idea of striving for the best, using hard work is what I believe my personality reflects upon. The prospect field of research, particularly, in virology for infectious diseases is relatively new and strangely unique, with much exploration needed; making it very appealing to satisfy my hunger for dedication and challenges. The Malaysian research is the purpose of my fundraising. The research interest for this placement is on anti-dengue activity and drug discovery from natural products. It will be taking place in Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang during summer holidays from the 30th May – 28th August 2017. This placement is an exceptional opportunity to sharpen my scientific skills, constructing an international network and gaining experiences of lifestyle and culture of a foreign country, opening multiple doors for my future career. It would definitely shape me as a young scientist, perpetuating my fire of accomplishing a PhD in the future. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014, a large dengue outbreak occurred in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which is my home country, making anti-dengue research very dear to my heart. Having witnessed my sister and couple of my friends suffer from the dengue fever was traumatising, igniting my passion, courage and enthusiasm to indulge in virus-infectious pathogenesis. The skills attained from the placement would certainly make me competent, compatible, and congruent for my further education in the upcoming field of my choice, building me as a strong, and vital member of the society. This fundraising is aimed for the minimum of £700 in which these funds will be used to cover the cost of orientation, registration, accommodation and the laboratory working equipment. The opportunity to be granted with the possible donations would help me prosper in the Malaysian prospect of experience abroad and would escalate my communications and adapting skills making me more flexible with the circumstances, adapting and problem-solving skills. Equipping me to become a young leader and an excellent team player, flexible with the circumstances and giving me a chance to learn a new culture and lifestyle with a possible expectation of visiting an awesome place!Project Insight: NATURAL PRODUCTS AS SOURCE OF POTENTIAL DENGUE ANTIVIRALS There is no clinically approved dengue vaccine or antivirals for humans. The treatment of the disease solely depends on pain relief pills, fluid replenishments, and bed rest.Different approaches have been used in the search for dengue antivirals; screening of compounds against dengue enzymes and structure-based computational discovery. Recent studies have focused on identification of compounds from ‘nature’ that can be used as dengue antivirals. It is an extraordinary reservoir that can be used directly as pharmaceuticals or serve as templates that can be optimised towards the development of new therapeutic agents.Several plants around the world present anti-dengue potential antiviral activity. African and Asian countries depend on traditional medicine as their primary health care due to economic and geographic constraints. Project aim: Identification of compounds from plants with antiviral dengue activity isolated from plants and other natural sources.

This page is to donate money to Prof. Alex Wood to help some of the poorest people in Cambodia to get better mental health care. The money is planned to be used as part of an ongoing project to improve the treatment of mental health in the region, or to be donated to a hospital which gives good healthcare to the poorest people for free (or at a cost affordable to them).Best value charitable donation - no middle menA key challange with giving to charity is knowing how much actually gets to where it is needed. Alex is able to personally take the money to where it is needed and use or give the money directly to the hospitals. No middle men, no employees, no advertising, none of the normal worries about the efficiency of charities.Our Mental Health ProjectImproving mental health services is a key health challenge for developing countries across South East Asia. Cambodia faces particular challenges following a genocide and series of wars in the 1970s and 1980s. During this period health care and university services were nearly entirely destroyed, including through a particular targeting of medical practitioners and academics for execution during the Pol Pot era. In the last two decades, Cambodia has made impressive efforts to rebuild its health and educations systems, including through the establishment of a basic infrastructure of hospitals, medical education universities, and aspirations to conduct international quality research. This has led to notable improvements in physical health as seen, for example, in arrested and declining HIV rates. However, mental health needs have been nearly entirely neglected, and the Cambodian population is largely without access to even rudimentary psychiatric or psychological treatments in both primary and secondary care, leading to several problems.First, rates of untreated mental illness are very high, with associated suffering and stigmatisation. Globally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that depression alone causes more suffering than that generated by all physical disorders combined. This suffering may be expected to be exceptionally high in Cambodia as almost no one in the older generation will have avoided witnessing or experiencing highly traumatic events, and the younger generation will have been born and parented in the recent aftermath of the trauma.Second, mental health conditions are often miss-diagnosed as physical, leading to inappropriate treatment that both wastes resources and risks harming the patient through unnecessary treatment, which in many cases exacerbates the mental health condition.Third, the treatment of chronic physical health conditions is complicated through a lack of assessment or treatment of co-morbid mental health conditions, resulting in the physical health conditions being more difficult and expensive to treat, as well as causing a considerably worse prognosis for the patient. For example, key challenges of HIV programmes include; (a) missed appointments, (b) patients dropping out of the system, (c) the need to locate patients that have so disengaged, (d) lack of adherence to treatment leading to both the emergence of opportunistic infections and HIV medication failure, (e) the need to use newer, more expensive medication due to first line medication failure, and (f) erratic medication compliance risking the emergence of drug resistance at the population level with international implications. Much of these problems emerge from patient disengagement and non-compliance, a key predictor of which in other countries is untreated simple mental health conditions such as depression. Adding a mental health assessment and treatment protocol may both reduce these problems and lead to a net financial saving for the programme.The implementation of an evidence based mental health programme is not currently possible due to the near total lack of research on how to assess or treat mental health in Cambodia, and there is no current mechanism to disseminate new p
Welcome to Solidarity for Victoria ,a human help money pot !We are the parents of Victoria.Victoria is affected from many years from with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) with Major depressive disorder and Panic attackNow she is 35, and she has not been able to have a life as the others girls.. Who is affected by it tend to be extremely sensitive. Some describe it as feeling like an exposed nerve ending. Small things can trigger intense reactions. And once upset, you have a hard time calming down. It’s easy to understand how this emotional volatility and inability to self-soothe leads to relationship turmoil and impulsive—even reckless—behavior. There is often an extreme fear of abandonment, frequent dangerous behavior, a feeling of emptiness, and self-harm. When you’re in the throes of overwhelming emotion, you’re unable to think straight and stay grounded. You may say hurtful things or act out in dangerous or inappropriate ways that make you feel guilty and ashamed later on. BPD is related to lower functioning and disability, even when socioeconomic status, medical conditions, and all psychiatric disorders were controlled .It’s a painful cycle that can feel impossible to escape. But it’s not.There are several treatments that are most often used to manage BPD:1. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on the concept of mindfulness, or paying attention to the present emotion. DBT teaches skills to control intense emotions, reduce self-destructive behavior, manage distress, and improve relationships. It seeks a balance between accepting and changing behaviors. This proactive, problem-solving approach was designed specifically to treat BPD. Treatment includes individual therapy sessions . DBT is the most studied treatment for BPD and the one shown to be most effective.2. Mentalization-based therapy (MBT) 3. Transference-focused therapy (TFP) 4. Good Psychiatric Management: GPM provides mental health professionals an easy-to-adopt “tool box” for patients with severe personality disorders.5. Medications can cure BPD and can help treat other conditions that often accompany BPD such as depression, impulsivity, and anxiety, SUICIDAL ideation . Often patients are treated with several medications.6. Self-Care activities include: regular exercise, good sleep habits, a nutritious diet, taking medications as prescribed, and healthy stress management. Donate to funding better therapies and, ultimately, cures...and to find better life. we are in difficulty now, after years of therapies and medicines to really high costsYour donation will help real Victoria who live through this!With the help of Charity we can help her with her mental illness and for suicide preventionCharities where your money will be put to good use. So we can sustained the programs for her healthy and recover . God bless you all Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
I am Anna, I was diagnosed with Friderichs Ataxia when I was 14, a progressively more degenerative illness with symptoms not dissimilar to MND though with slower progression. This slowly took away my mobility and by the time I was 16 I was needing to use a wheelchair every day, however this wheelchair only allowed me to self propel inside and my world got smaller and darker. When I was 21 a charity called Action for Kids considered me a kid and helped me fund a outdoor powered wheelchair; the Alber Adventure. It totally opened up my world and allowed me to go to places that I just couldn't for at least the previous 5 years, everone else takes an afternoon at a country park for granted. The first holiday after getting the chair was to the lake district and I can't explain how liberating it was and my world grew and grew.Although the Alber Adventure is a great chair, it has now had 11 years of hard use, it is no longer manufactured and so it has a couple of major faults now that just can't be sorted out. It has served me well, and in that time it has allowed me to volunteer as a Rainbow, Brownie and Guide leader including taking my Guides to Switzerland, taking the Guides on camp, and to Somerset, taking the Brownies on unit holiday and plenty of walks, orienteering, treasure hunts, sports days and wide games in the New Forest and parks. I also volunteered at Scout Eurojam in Essex, on Brownsea Island for the Scout Centenary, a Scout Jamboree in Ireland and hopefully at The World Scout Moot in Iceland this summer. I have done my Duke of Edinburgh and Queens Guide awards and enjoy dog walks pretty much every day, some in the New Forest some other local areas. I always had an adventurous streak as a child an outdoor powerchair allows me to be who I want to be and desperately don't want to have to let that go.I need to replace the Alber Adventure, however the replacement is going to cost £13.608 as this is how much I have been quoted by All Terrain Wheelchairs (01952 471255 - Quote 1285)I hope to be doing a number of challenges and sponsored events to be actively work for these funds. * Should this be funded be the NHS? - The NHS are only responsible for an everyday chair, not this.* Are you applying to charities? - Yes however I am only eligible to apply to a few charities for grants and the maximum awarded is usually about £2500* Does this site charge fees? - Yes but it is one of the lowest around. 2.9% or 4% although if you prefer you can donate to me or the wheelchair company directly.
Help support Roberta's recovery!In February my fiancée Roberta suffered a brain haemorrhage from a burst aneurysm, 4 months before our wedding. She was taken to a local hospital in her home town where they operated to stop the bleeding. She was then transferred to a hospital in Rome where they slowly brought her out of an induced coma. For a few days things were looking very positive; Roberta was able to confirm that she could understand those around her and was able to mouth words. Unfortunately, a week later there was a complication and Roberta suffered an ischaemic stroke, damaging a large part of the left side of her brain. She remained in a coma for some weeks. Doctors at the time said that she may not be able to wake from the coma but Roberta is strong and managed to wake from the coma. Although alert, as yet, she has not yet found a way to communicate and has significant movement issues. It is hoped Roberta can shortly be transferred to a specialist rehabilitation clinic. We do not know what the future holds for Roberta but with her strength and passion for life we are optimistic that she will make significant improvements over the coming months and years. This page has been set up to raise funds to to enable Roberta to access the best treatment and rehabilitation available to aid in her recovery process. Nel mese di febbraio la mia fidanzata Roberta ha subito un'emorragia cerebrale da un aneurisma, 4 mesi prima del nostro matrimonio. Era stata portata in un ospedale locale nella sua città di origine dove operavano per fermare il sanguinamento. Fu trasferita in un ospedale di Roma dove lentamente l'ha portata fuori da un coma indotto. Per qualche giorno le cose stavano cercando molto positive; Roberta riuscì a confermare che poteva capire chi era intorno a lei e riuscì a parlare di bocca. Purtroppo, una settimana dopo c'era una complicazione e Roberta subì un ictus ischemico, danneggiando gran parte del lato sinistro del suo cervello. Rimase in coma per alcune settimane. I dottori allora affermavano che potrebbe non essere in grado di svegliarsi dal coma ma Roberta è forte e riuscita a svegliarsi dal coma. Anche se attenta, ancora non ha ancora trovato un modo per comunicare e ha importanti problemi di movimento. Si spera che Roberta possa essere subito trasferita in una clinica di riabilitazione specialistica. Non sappiamo quale sia il futuro per Roberta ma con la sua forza e la sua passione per la vita siamo ottimisti che farà notevoli miglioramenti nei prossimi mesi e anni. Questa pagina è stata creata per raccogliere fondi per consentire a Roberta di accedere ai migliori trattamenti e riabilitazione disponibili per aiutare nel processo di recupero.

Suheir Halawani, 50, is a mother of four. Not more than 11 years ago, Suheir was a married woman in a perfectly healthy state who had moved with her children to Lebanon from Ghana, where they were all born.That very year, 2005, she began experiencing numbness in her left first toe. Thinking that it could possibly be due to an unnoticed bump during rush times, or perhaps due to the difference in climate from Ghana, Suheir dismissed the idea by taking over-the-counter medication. Nonetheless, the numbness only increased as time went on, until it stretched across her entire left leg. She had already begun seeking medical attention and performing numerous tests at the time, only to be told something along the lines of "Your case is strange, we have never seen this before." Her tests showed absolutely no sign of deficiencies nor anything she should worry about. At least that's what the doctors said.About one year later, Suheir was virtually paralyzed. She could not feel nor control her lower half. It was not until one doctor who used cortisone treatment on her that she was gradually able to feel and walk on her legs normally. It was a dream come true. This dream lasted for a good four years. After that, her health plummeted once more. This time, it was due to marital problems. Since she has a nervous issue, anytime she gets worried or angry, her legs would turn as stiff as stone. She then went back for even more tests. In fact, she had spinal fluid extracted twice as well as a sample from her lips in one of the best medical centers in Lebanon, all in vain. Unfortunately, every doctor's calming promises were eventually broken. "You will walk out of this hospital, trust me," they said. In 2013, Suheir got divorced, and was cut from the monthly income her ex husband sent to her and the children, who were taken back to Ghana.Within a month, she was back at her mother's house with none of her children, and zero financial income. Needless to say, both her mental and physical health deteriorated after that.Perhaps I should mention that Suheir also has only one kidney, as she lost the other in a childhood accident. She therefore needs periodic bowel checkups, which she hasn't had for over 3 years now.I also didn't mention that I am Suheir's 16 year old, and last son. During the one month that I see my mother in every year, I have seen her giving up too many times, and hate to think that she is helpless. My only dream is to know that my mother is healthy, able to walk, and that she is reunited once more with my siblings and I. Thank you.

Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure Hi Guys Im not the best at doing this kind of thing as my pride gets in the way, However I have a project that will help me professionally. As many of you know I am a flustist and started playing at the age of 12. I advanced very quickly and within my 3rd year of playing I had achieved my grade 8 exams and was accepted to study a bachelor of music in flute performance at Auckland university. I have spent many years lost not knowing what to do, Working in retail, restaurants etc. Now Im in Paris and have had the opportunity to return my studies and really make a go of music as my career. I am currently studying in Paris with an amazing American teacher and will sit my DipABRSM exams (1st step diploma professionally) on the 15th of june after just 9 months of return to study and 4-5 hours a day of practise. I am currently looking for work here in Paris but am finding it hard as my french is not amazing. I hope to start getting students to teach flute and work part time probably back in retail and maybe small gigs to fund my lessons and masterclasses and future exams in the coming years. Not to mention daily living costs. This project is to fund a new semi professional flute so I can continue to advance and develop. I currently play on a student model flute that no longer allows me to push my technique and develop further. Please, If you can give me a hand and donate to this money pot and if you have any questions I will be happy to answer. There is no maximum or minimum amount anything will be appreciated. And of course I will definately keep you all updated on my progress. Thank you so much to all of you for your support. Chris

Comme vous le savez probablement, Madame Vanessa, enseignante maternelle à l'ARA vient de subir des troubles de santé importants. Ayant eu le plaisir de la connaitre lors l'apprentissage de notre fille à l'école, nous nous trouvons très touchés par sa situation. Vos coordonnées m'ont été confiées par la direction de l'ARA en tant que parents ayant été en contact direct avec Madame Vanessa. Le point ici est simple, nous voudrions récolter des fonds pour soutenir Madame Vanessa et sa famille dans les mois qui viennent. Comme nous ne nous connaissons pas, l'idée est venue de créer une plateforme neutre d'où Madame Vanessa pourra collecter les dons, sans autre intermédiaire. Il n'y a bien évidemment aucune obligation de participer. La demande ne vient ni de l'école, ni de Madame Vanessa. Il s'agit juste de créer un pécule qui aidera Madame Vanessa à réaborder son quotidien quand elle pourra enfin quitter l'hopital. Merci de faire circuler le message à tout parent que vous connaissez ayant été en contact avec Madame Vanesa et qui ne serait pas dans la chaine actuelle. Bonne journée,Olivier Aelterman We are collecting funds for Madame Vanessa. Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
Thank you for doing the selfie challenge! What do you say when your 12 year old daughter asks if her mum is going to be here next Christmas. She tells people how much her mum means to her and how she needs help raising money for life saving surgery. She has been a young carer for a few years and doesn't leave the house before making sure mum is safe. She keeps a smile on so no one can see how scared she is to lose her mum.Her grandad takes her horse riding when he can so that she can escape everything for a few hours. She gets a holiday in the summer with the young carers group but more than anything wants to spend summer with her mum like she used to. She watches every day knowing her mum needs life saving abroad and that the money is the only thing standing in the way of getting her mum back. Picture a few years ago before things got really bad.I have a rare condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) I need Life Saving Surgery because my spine is unstable and crushing my brainstem. I cannot turn my neck without partially dislocating it and the bottom of my brain has come out of my skull into the spinal canal. I can't even turn my head when Caityn says "mummy look at this" The surgery I need is not done in the UK for EDS patients and I need to raise funds to go to Barcelona. I have brainstem compression and I need surgery to to make more space for my brain and to fuse my skull to my cervical spine. I can't leave the house unless it's serious and I forget more and more memories of fun days with my daughter because of the damage being done to my brain.In order to prevent lower limb paralysis I also need to have lower spinal surgeries. I want walk hand in hand with my daughter in the sunshine again, take her to the beach and watch her collect shells. The conditions I have are called Cranio Cervical Instability, Atlanto Axial Instability, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and others. I want to see the pain disappear from her eyes because she can be a child again and I can look after her. I have life threatening conditions and without these surgeries that the UK cannot provide I am living on borrowed time until the next thing happens. I need to get these surgeries to be there for my daughter. I have to achieve this, theres no other hope now. I already suffer from sublaxations, blood pressure and heart issues, facial swelling and numbness, electric shocks, insomnia, muscle weakness and so much more. I need your help to beat this and live.The money raised will pay for surgery and the required hospital care in Barcelonas Hospital Teknon. Surgery for Ehlers Danlos Patients is generally not undertaken in the UK and is not offered for Cranio cervical fusion. It is only available in the USA or Barcelona. The cost to have surgery in the USA is approximately $150,000 for one part, so I am lucky to have the opportunity of surgery with Dr Gilete in Barcelona. Your donations will help me to live and mean so much more than any words I can say but from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Nous parlons souvent, lors des créations d’entreprises, de prêts bancaires, prêts d’honneurs, crédits, ou autres. Et si nous changions les règles ? Après tout, je ne souhaite pas réellement plaire au banquier, ce qui m'interesse avant tous, c’est de vous plaire à vous. « La création de ce projet découle d’un voyage culturel en Australie pendant 2 ans.La politique de ce concept sera de vous offrir la plus belle façon de manger, découvrir une nouvelle culture, parce que l’Australie n’est pas seulement liée a des paysages à couper le souffle, elle est catégorisée par une générosité humaine, une ouverture d’esprit, un partage, une vie enrichissante et saine.L’Australie est également l’un des pays ou les fruits et les légumes sont sublimés par un amour de la terre et de la culture, ce que nous ne retrouvons pas forcement en France. Ce pourquoi je souhaite travailler directement avec les paysans / maraîchers de notre région, car le circuit court aujourd’hui est plus important. Ils sont souvent délaissés au détriment des grandes enseignes.Tout ce que vous serrez capable de retrouver dans ce projet sera inspiré de ce voyage, qui m’a permit d’avancer, et de vouloir créer » Les donations sont aujourd’hui ouvertes, elles seront anonymes, sauf dans le cas ou vous souhaitez échanger avec l’entreprise, ou je prendrais un grand plaisir à vous répondre et vous remercier.Par la même, je serais ravie de pouvoir, par la suite, garder les noms et prénoms (avec votre accord) des personnes m'ayant aidé à monter ce projet.Au delà de l’aspect financier, le coté humain sera gravé dans un « livre d’or » exposé en boutique dès son ouverture. Vous retrouverez une gamme "healthy" de smoothies, tartines, bagels. salades, granola, muesli.. Pensez une chose, même si vos dons n’excèdent pas 2 euros, ils seront très précieux à la réalisation de l’entreprise, et grâce a vous, nous pourrons ouvrir nos portes. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ When you’re one your way to create your business, we’re always speaking about bank loans. Look, what do you think if we’re changing rules? I don’t want to be loved by bankers, I want to be accepted from you. “This idea came from after 2 years in Australia.The politic of this concept's gonna be to offer you the best way to eat, lear a new culture, because Australia is not just some wonderful landscape, it’s categorized with a human generosity, free mind, sharing, enriching and healthy life.Under than that Australia it’s one of the country where you can find lots of natural fruits and veggies, that we don’t really have in France, because of the big brands.Everything you'll find in this concept come from this important and amazing Australian travel, and this gave me this strong mind to want to create my own business” Donations are going to be anonymous, but if you want to share anything with me, I’ll be happy to reply. More than that, I want to create a « gold book », I would love to put all names who helped me to open my business, so feel free to contact me. Think about something, even if it’s just 2 euros, that will be the most helpfull thing I never had before. I worked hard in your country during 2 years, and now I want to share with all Frenchies how Australia is. I need your help to create my business in France!

Welcome to this money pot !This money pot has a special purpose... It was set up on behalf of a young, absolutely fabulous girl and her family.Her name is Dorota and she is 16 years old. Last year, just a week before her 'sweet 16', Dorota was seriously injured in an accident. She was hit by a train while passing a train track. Thankfully, she survived. However, since the accident Dorota has lost consciousness and does not respond to the surrounding world. Her family, and especially her older sister Beata who is also my dear lifelong friend, are doing everything possible to bring her back to reality, to make her smile again. Dorota is currently in a clinic in Warsaw (Poland), which was set up for all children suffering from similar conditions, such as loss of consciousness, coma, autism, etc. The clinic supports her progress for a year now free of charge. However, she will soon have to leave and go back home as the clinic only offers one year of free stay and beyong that it is of significant cost. However, my friend Beata, decided not to give up and raise money so that her little sister can stay there for a bit longer or participate in other ways of therapy which will result in regaining consciousness. And I want to support her efforts. I have known that little girl since she was 4 years old and she is a wonderful human being, everyone who knows you can tell you that! Therefore, I ask you please, to help me.... It would mean the world to me if I could have even the tiniest impact on her recovery with your help. Therefore, please, help me to help them. They deserve it.Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!
"Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible."I have decided to create this Money Pot to help my friend Ania, who is battling cancer metastasis. Ania is 40-year-old mum of two (13 and 3), loving wife and a good friend. But life wasn't too gracious for her. In 2014 she lost her mother due to cancer. Month after her mum's funeral Ania was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy, then mastectomy of right breast and radiotherapy with hormone therapy.In July 2015 cancer was defeated. She couldn't have been much happier. But her happiness had lasted for about one year only. In November 2016 she was told about metastasis to bones (left hip, pelvis on the right side, ribs on both sides, spine). And her battle with cancer had started again...Ania is very determined to fight it off, because she has very important reasons to live. Unfortunately conventional medicine is not able to help her, only to ease the pain with some strong drugs. But... There is a chance to cure Ania with intravenous infusions of vitamin C. Unfortunately 6-month treatment costs about £9,000 (one year costs £18,000!). It's not covered by NHS. To get this kind of treatment she has to travel abroad. It's very expensive, but it's the only hope for her and her family.Hope is the last thing to be lost. We can't lose it. If we lose hope, we lose everything. That's why Ania needs your help. Without this money she is not able to undergo the treatment which may save her life.Please remember one thing, helping Ania you are giving her sons hope that they will still have their mum...Every penny counts. Give however much you want.Thank you!If you wish to contact Ania, you can find her on Facebook: Anna Piżewska. With love,Edythe
Welcome to this money pot for the ambulance for Kiabakari Health Center !Our health center in Kiabakari in rural area of Mara Region in north-western Tanzania, located between Lake Victoria and Serengeti National Park needs an ambulance to enable us to expand mobile clinic health services to villages surrounding Kiabakari, accessed by dirt, rough roads; and allow for secure and quick transfer of patients, in particular - expectant mothers who need to be referred to hospitals for safe delivery of their babies - as we at present lack blood bank and major theater capabilities. Help us to help people in remote villages with the mobile clinic services. Help us to help Mums to deliver babies safely here or if needed - to be quickly transferred to hospitals in Musoma, Butiama, Bunda or Mwanza. Help us to help save lives of patients needing quick and reliable transfer from Kiabakari to hospitals elsewhere. MIVA Poland is ready to help us in purchasing the vehicle but we need to secure 1/3 of the cost of the vehicle which is 10,000 Euro. On top of that there are additional costs of clearing and forwarding at Dar es Salaam port, registration, insurance, construction of the parking shade for the ambulance in our health center and costs of traveling to Dar and delivering of the ambulance to Kiabakari. These additional costs will amount to approx. 10,000 Euros. So, in total we aim at fundraising 20,000 Euros.
