Hi my name is Gilli Graham, I am a mum of one awsome girl, a marine conservationist, artist, activist, vegan and many other things.
I volunteer for various marine organisations including being a trustee and director of Sea Shepherd UK and crewing for Sea Shepherd in Antarctica. I am a marine mammal medic also and instruct courses.
I do Pyrography, Sketching, tattoo flash, photography and various other art forms.. I wish to do a body piercing course as I have been offered a studio space in a local tattoo studio to get my business up and running.
My problem is I have Kidney failure and work is difficult and unreliable for me, I can't do the every day 9-5 as i cant always make it.
Being able to work for myself will allow me to make a regular comfortable income I can work from home with my art and from the studio with the piercing allowing me to get by far easier with my health.
It can also help provide for myself and my daughter and the voluntary work I do.
I am looking to raise enough simply for the piercing course itself which is only £600., the equipment and supplies to get me started.
I have already done some business outreach for my art to find area's where I can sell and produce.
To get my business up and running I would only need £2500.
So I am asking if you can donate and help I would be so grateful. It would mean I could get a place for myself and my daughter and start to have a more normal and improved quality of life :D
