£935raised of £1,200 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £935 to buy stationery, toys and Christmas presents for children at orphanages in the Leningrad region of Russia.

    St Petersburg, Saint Petersburg, Russia
    Funded on Thursday, 22nd December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    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.
