Hello, my name is Darren and I'm 27. I would first of all thank you for taking time out to read my story.
What the funds will be used for: furniture with back supports and orthopedic bed which will allow me to sleep much more comfortable and stuff regarding mobility so I'm able to go out and not being stuck indoors all day everyday.The stuff I so really need is not cheap ;( and just asking for help to make my life a bit easier everything I buy I will do a update telling you what I got with pictures what does this campaign mean to me well, the reason I am asking for help is because over the last few years I have been suffering from a serious back pain which gets worse as time goes on and I will be honest I do get really depressed because of all of this. I have been told by different doctors who is specialized in back conditions and they said over time it will continue to deteriorate which they then told me I will have it for the rest of my life. The doctors have diagnosed me as having chronic back pain which effects my shoulders top of my which shoots down my spine which effects my lower back more than anything. Also they are really considering that I might have sciatica because of how the pain effects my hips (pelvis) which shoots down both my legs which effects my walking capabilities.. I have been to physiotherapy, they turned me away as they couldn't do anything. I have had TPI (trigger point injections) which was designed to reduce or relieve the pain which had little effect.At the moment I am currently on some of the strongest painkillers out there but due to my age, there isn't a lot they can do and they can't really give me the best stuff unless I go private but I have nowhere near enough money to afford that.The thing what bothers me the most is not being able to do stuff with my family, I just want to be able to go out with my family instead of being stuck indoors all the time and be able to do things without being in pain and uncomfortable.If I can at least get help and support to try and make my day to day living so much better it would mean the world to me. I do have a partner to care and look after me on a daily basis but with her being pregnant I can't really keep asking her to do the stuff that is needed everyday, also I would like to be able to go out with her as well as little one and our 3 year old son. It upsets me that I am unable to play with my son or even go out anywhere with my family. I don't know what I could say as I've never been good at this sort of stuff and I hope I have explained it properly. Please share and help me get my campaign out there and help me reach my target or if not more and again thank you.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
