What is crowdfunding?

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



I'm in my 6th year of High School and I'm apart of the selected team to go over to Ogwini to help the students at the high school there whom we have a cultural and and curricular link with. The school is in Umlazi, a township close to Durban. We will be going into classes, supporting the pupils, leading the classes and will be helping make a difference.

This experience is described as "life changing" and "unbelievable" by pupils who have been previously and this is something I've always dreamed of doing. The idea of meeting new people, being apart of their culture and experiencing what other people live like seems fascinating to me.

We have been fundraising in school with bake sales, dress down days and we have also been bag packing at local stores where all the money will go to the team and your donation would be a great help to me.

We need to fundraise as much as possible by February 2017 when we go and It'd mean a great deal if you could help with my journey to Africa. Even a little donation would go a long way to help me be able to achieve my dream.

Thank you so much

    I am a hardworking, caring and fun pupil. As well as studying hard in school, I volunteer out of school and try and have a positive impact on the people's lives. Furthermore I am an optimistic and driven person and I cannot wait to go over and help make a difference in Africa.
