Weʼre raising £1,000 to a charity called Kidscape. This Charity provides support and advice to young people suffering with being bullied. It’s now time to give back
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.
It has recently occured to me that bullying is a huge issue in the UK,more now than ever. In the years 2017/18, 17% of young people aged from 10-15 admitted to being bullied. The population of England is approximately 66.85 million people, now 17% of 66.85 million is 11364500 people, so 11364500 youths aged between 10-15 are being bullied on a daily basis. In 2017 a total of 5,821 suicides were registered in the UK.
I personally have gone through a bullying experience and you constantly feel like you‘re alone. No one is alone and by raising money for such an amazing cause to give children the chance to speak to somebody would be so heart warming to achieve.
I want to make a change to the all the young people that do not feel safe whether its at home,at work,at school,on the streets ect. I want to raise money for an amazing charity that gives young people a chance to talk about what fears them. I want to raise £1000 to go towards a fundraiser event and my charity to show them thag we are grateful for all the work they put in and to show young people that they are not alone and someone is always listening.
