David Smith’s family is facing eviction. He spent his first birthday in a homeless shelter and ever since his family have been trying to make ends meet.
David’s Mom is getting assistance but not enough to cover the rent, utilities and the other things they need. One of the bigger, but very important expenses, are my nappies. My mom and I are working on getting trained so I won't need the nappies anymore, but it's a work in progress.
My mom is facing an eviction and we are hoping to find donors who can help us pay the back-rent. We are forever grateful to anyone who can help us during this difficult time.
My Mom, told our story via a mini blog on StoryAid. It was published and people contribute after hearing our story.
‘StoryAid’ is a scheme in where people who are in financial trouble can get funds raised by the public. Think of it as Crowdsourcing for people in need.
UPDATE: After raising the £1,500 by the good public, we’re able to pay our rent.

Why it's a great idea:
It's a great idea as it's people orientated. We all have a story to tell. Sometimes we need aid in these stories. StoryAid will give people a platform in order to tell their stories to a wider community.
StoryAid will promote equality and diversity and provide a place for people to write or tell their story so that they can get heard.
StoryAid doesn't have all the answers, but we'll be able to point people in the right direction if their funding isn't met.
Steps to get it done:
