After the worst time and the twisted story the newspapers told about me I was prompted to put my page back up , I feel this to be the only way I can speak out ,because I have lost all faith in reporters, I will never believe half of the stories I read in the papers now ,.I am not a bad person :( ..I also am not asking people for their hard earned money , people have a choice, if I had lied and said one of my children was ill when they weren't to raise money I could have understood the backlash but I was totally upfront and honest :( .. you can't win in his world ..I made this page because a few people I know told me they had funded their travel in this way and I thought well I can at least try , I never expected any donations I didn't even think people would see it , as I didn't even share it to my Facebook page . I never knew it had been shared so many times until a reporter rang me , I then took it down straight away, I need to add that i did not sell any story and have received no money from any of the newspapers , they took my photos without consent and twisted words .my children , family or anybody knew that I set up this page ( well they do now ) and yes I should have thought about it more before I opened it but it's too late now . i did read it back after and yes I agree it did sound cheeky , but I am very clumsy and if was going to happen to anyone it would have to be me ! I love my children and my job , I'm a carer and I havent been able to get anymore hours at work , nights are not easy to come by , i have gone into a 0 hours contract , I do try . the press have made me out to be a awful person when I was only thinking of my children and making them happy .I have never used go fund me before so I should have looked into it more. I have used the just giving website and I completed race for life last year , in memory of my much loved close relatives. I thought this section of the website was for funding hopes , dreams and wishes, and I believed go fund me was a chance to raise money for anything,I looked in the category and a lot of people were doing similar things , even raising money for breast enhancements and cars , I never meant to upset anyone .I'm traumatised by the abuse and negativity I have received and only put this back up because alot of people said I should. I won't let anyone bully me into taking it down ...Online trolls are evil , I haven't hurt anyone and I was only trying to fulfil my children's dreams .thankyou to all who have been so kind to me. X

I will not be shamed because I wanted to do more for my children ..

This is my original story xx

 I have been blessed with the most amazing , kind , loving and caring daughters , they are my best friends and my life , my girls are 10 and 12
They are so helpful , animal loving and rays of sunshine , I want to show them how much I appreciate and love them , I work 2 nights a week at our local hospital as this is all I am able to do ATM because of childcare and contract hours.
They watch a lot of YouTube videos where children are surprised by their parents with a holiday to disneyworld and they even get tears in their eyes watching it , they love anything Disney and I know that I would never be able to get them there on my own , by the time I save up they would be to old to enjoy it :(
We lost 2 very special people in our lives these past couple of years and this really would give them so much to look forward to , please help me to make my daughters dreams come true xxxx

To the wonderful people who have donated , thankyou , it just goes to show that not everyone believes what they read in the news and listen to what the 1000's of trolls think , don't judge someone until you hear their side , don't believe everything you read , I will never believe half of the stories I read now that's for sure! Thankyou so much to my supporters who have been sending me messages and donations for my girls xxx

To hell with all the self righteous judgemental haters who are criticizing this mom. If my 10-15 bucks can help make some child's dream come true then I am all for it. Take your girls to Disney and have fun. Best wishes !!!!
