For the second time in just over a year, we're faced with unexpected funeral costs (which is ironic since death and taxes are supposed to be the only certainties in life), only this time we don't have jobs after resigning to be closer to my mum after she was diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately (or fortunately for those who have seen their loved ones devastated by cancer), she died peacefully a few weeks before we were due to come home.
Family have checked and are not eligible for a bereavement payment, so I thought I'd see if we could raise the equivalent amount to help with funeral costs. This will cover approximately 50% of the cost of the funeral.
In keeping with the original intention of crowdfunding, we would like to request that donations be kept small and manageable.
