Hello, I would much prefer to be on the other side of this life experience, I would rather give than to ask, at the same time accepting where I’m right now, is the best I can do. My asking is related to giving. Please do read on..
I’m Gemma, 5 years ago after 25 years I found myself single. Godsend it was, it took a long time to recover from the years of traumatic marriage. Now, I’m feeling blessed and truly grateful for the new lease of life…
In the five years of mending from PTSD, I have become a Volunteer for the bereaved, trained as a Soul Midwife (companion for the dying and terminally ill) and now, just finishing a course and soon becoming a Funeral Celebrant. I’m truly passionate about helping the bereaved, and the dying. Also passionate about educating people about death and dying.
I’m now 63 and some probably say it’s too late, but I feel differently.
At the moment I’m living on UC with my son who is still in education. Although my heart aches for not being able to provide many things for him, we manage our wanting, live a very simple life, and grateful for what we have.
I would like to work, and make a difference while doing it. I find what I want to do, what makes me tick. I’m skilled, educated and knowledgeable, it would be foolish, and wasteful not to give all that I can, I have so much to offer.
I have 5 years experience working with bereaved people, trained and certified in looking after the dying and terminally ill, and able to educate about, and arrange bespoke memorials and funerals.
I have plans, business name, etc, and my heart, soul and body is ready. My children, and friends cheering me on, and right behind me.
What I need help with, is putting all my dreams into practice. I’m dyslexic and can’t make the simplest of website myself. I need financial support to get my little one-man business off the ground.
I would be eternally grateful for help, so I can afford to have a website and logo designed, print out fliers, business cards, visiting/driving to clients, there’s so much needed to be done, that I simply cannot afford.
I’m willing to provide any proof through email. Please just ask away. Proof of UC, child benefit, my credentials. Also happy to keep in touch, and update on how things are going, and being accountable.
I would be very grateful for any contribution, however small to get my little business started. Thanks for reading.
