£4,500 is a lot of money and, to be honest, I didn't think it was going to happen.
But within an hour of the campaign going live, we'd raised over £500. The next morning, we were over a quarter of the way to reaching the target. The day after that, we were featured in both the paper and the online version of The Independent.
On Monday morning, I gave my first ever live TV interview on Sky News with Eamonn Holmes, which you can watch here.
On Tuesday, our campaign was featured on the MailOnline website - which you can imagine got some rather harsh comments but, as multiple people said on Twitter, if Daily Mail commenters don't agree with you then you must be doing something right.
I was invited to be on ITV's Lorraine show; a real-life piece was written about me on thesite.org, and people I'd never even spoken to donated as much as they could.
And now it's Friday, and... we've raised the money. I'm going back to InterHigh so I can do my A Levels, and it's all thanks to you, whether you donated, shared the link or simply cheered from the sidelines.
I never, ever expected #HelpAmber to get this far - and I definitely didn't expect to be on live television! I can't thank you all enough and I hope you all know how awesome you are. You've helped me continue my education when I had no other options left and, despite being in pretty rubbish circumstances, I feel so lucky to have this amazing community around me.
One of the rewards I offered on my Crowdfunder was the opportunity to have your name included in my thank you blog post and video. So, in no particular order, thank you SO much to:
Maryline Van Puymbrouck
...and all the other people who donated, shared the link, and sent messages of support. I'm amazed at how many people got behind this. You're all WONDERFUL. You have my permission to buy yourselves a book.
And to the person who commented on the Daily Mail article moaning about my generation being entitled: yes, we are entitled - especially to education. Thank you for giving me mine. ❤
