Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund our trip to America on the World Scout Jamboree
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We have been fortunate enough to be selected for this event. It is above all an educational event that brings together the worlds ‘young people’, to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.
To be able to attend this ‘once in a lifetime’ event, we must raise £3,795 each. While this is a lot of money, a large percentage of this amount subsidises a scout from a less economically developed country who will also attend. (The total cost of the jamboree is split between countries according to their GDP, therefore, every county in the world is able to attend, and all do, except for two.)
While we are getting local work to raise the money for our own fee, we are planning sponsored events and seeking corporate sponsorship to raise the remainder that will fund another scout from a less economically developed country.
