Hi I'm Pauline, I'm raising funds to start my own online retail clothing business.

I suffer from Anxiety and Depression, which means some days I struggle to leave the house and take care of myself, let alone work. I have been forced to leave several jobs as employers have no support in place when an employee struggles with mental health issues. I find myself unable to find new jobs as employers don't want to hire me due to having had so many jobs in the past. The cycle continues and so many times I find myself in this position.

My retail business will specialise in buying and reselling vintage dresses. The money I need will fund marketing my business, buying stock, setting up my own website, setting up business accounts on various selling platforms e.g EBay and Amazon.

In the near future I will embark on a dressmaking course and expand my business to sell bespoke pieces and much of the funds needed will help with this too.

As I can do this work from home, becoming self employed will give me the stability I need to continue to support myself and remain a productive member of society when I deal with the struggles of my mental health issues.

Really what I'm asking for is help to take back control of my life, so please donate and help bring that opportunity into sight.
