We did it
On 17th March 2018 we successfully raised £50 with 3 supporters in 56 days

One More Life is a new concept as of November 2017 - campaigning and raising awareness for mental health. I am a new social entrepreneur aiming to raise funds for initial start up costs. I boxed in September last year for MIND and raised £317! Boxing for the second time again is going to be tough this time round as I've definitely let myself go since that night. Both physically and mentally, I guess the physical probably would of took care of the mental side of things with the benefit of hindsight! Nevertheless - my motivation will not be deterred as I am doing this for something which means so much to me and thats to keep shouting about the importance of mental health! ???? I also won by unanimous decision - have a watch of the full bout above! 

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
