Update: £6,590 raised to help Katie Cutler pay whopping @clairebarberpr bill

Three fundraisers have set up various accounts to help raise money for Katie Cutler, 23, from Gateshead, Newcastle, England to stop her losing her home with her daughter and having the bailiffs called in.

Danielle Aikin had set up a Just Giving site on https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/danielle-aikin which has already raised £3,393 by 22nd September.

Ryan Walker, set up a Gofundme account  on https://www.gofundme.com/2p7yad8, which currently stands at £3,145

Wayne Thompson has fundraised £52 for her on https://linkis.com/justgiving.com/f5P6g

The total raised for Katie, so far, is £6,590 as at 22/09/2016

As a blogger, Beaulieu has raised awareness of these sites and is not charging anyone for any PR, let alone £550 a day.  Over the last day or so, the funding has increased in hundreds.  Thanks to everyone who have helped Katie, and did the right thing. I would add that several of Katie’s supporters  have been blocked on Twitter by Clairebarber PR including myself!

Crowdsourcing for Good Samaritan Katie Cutler raises over £5,000 in hours for whopping Claire Barber PR bill

Good Samaritan and beautician from Gateshead, England, dubbed ‘The Angel of the North’, Katie Cutler,  23, raised nearly £330,000 for Alan Barnes, a disabled pensioner who was mugged by thugs. He managed to buy himself a home with the money.

Unfortunately, she faced a massive bill of nearly £7000 from public relations company @Claire BarberPR. She also is having to pay for legal costs as she is now getting a solicitor.

There have been several fundraising pages for her, a Justgiving and a Gofundme account:-

Beaulieu helped raise the fundraising profiles with free social media coverage. Always good to get nice people in the world. Young people can often get a bad rep in the media.

Never mind getting a job on some reality programme, go into politics Katie, you have made more of a difference than many politicians have. You have done a lot to inspire people of all ages.

Thanks to all those who are spreading the word and have chipped in, even if it is a small amount.

 Since this article was posted, my own blog stats has spiked too. I am getting many viewers from overseas, including Japan, Spain, Germany and the United States. Furthermore several of ‘Katie supporters’ have been blocked by ClaireBarberPR on Twitter including myself!
