Hi BgEd, welcome to the forums. We can see you've started another thread to seek support from the community which is great. That's what the forums are here for and we'll do our best to help you.
The donation appeal you're seeing on our front page at the moment is for our 24/7 counselling support service. We are currently experiencing unprecedented demand for this service, as there are many people like yourself in need of support. This service is not funded by government, it is entirely dependent on donations from members of the public to keep running and answer the many thousands of calls we receive each year.
I can see when you click on that link currently it's taking you directly to a donation page without providing some context for why we're asking for donations. We'll pass this onto the web team for correction.
