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.
This initiative is to promote diversity regarding the dissemination of ACT training - generally speaking in UK/Europe & USA and other developed economies ACT training is accessible to all - both in terms of location and cost ... the same cannot be said in developing nations.
ACT trainers who may be prepared to offer 'expenses only' trainings, will also need to be willing to let go of regular income opportunities on the days they give to travel and teach. Paying for their own flights will in many cases be simply too much of a personal cost to contemplate. We thought to try to 'crowdfund' the travel costs by appealing to people who avail themselves of easily accessible training opportunities here in UK, who may also want to contribute to a healthy growth in diversity of ACT trained practitioners - and via them, ACT reaching a more inclusive clientele across the whole world scene
