hi chris. i am one of the moderators on this site. due to the number of people who try to obtain money, we have had to make a few basic rules.
regardless of what your trying to obtain money for, this site is not the place to raise funds.
i hope you can understand .... it has nothing to do with you, or your cause .... we have had to draw a line that cannot be disputed or argued over.
so the line that was drawn is that no-one can raise funds on the site.
i therefore have not allowed your post to go public.
i do not want you to leave the site .... we are here to support each other, and there is nothing wrong with raising awareness.
but please refrain from asking for donations, as we cannot allow anyone to ask for that.
