What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


I will climb the Snowdon Peak on Dec. 3rd to do a skydive jump from ~4km on Dec. 4th. I hate free fall. And while Snowdon is just over 1km above sea level, December darkness, cold, mist, rain and snow as I ascend do promise a miserable experience to justify your support!

All the funds raised will be used to buy stationery, toys and New Year presents for disabled / disadvantaged children of several orphanages supported by "Polza" Charity Foundation.

I plan to deliver those myself late December, just in time for the New Year - which I've had a chance to do with them before. For anyone in St. Petersburg late December - any help with packaging, delivery etc. will be greatly appreciated.

Polza is running a number of volunteer projects aimed at social rehabilitation, support and protection of disabled children and children dealing with difficult life situations.
