Weʼre raising £5,000 to go to Mont Blanc to start up a Belarus charity

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.

Story

Back in March 2018, after I had decided that I would be attempting to ascend Mont Blanc, I started to think about which charity to fund. Ideally, I wanted to support an orphanage back in my home country, Belarus (I was thinking of White Stork fund https://aistbel.by/).

JustGiving makes it very easy to support registered charities in UK, but calling on people to support a specific cause abroad is not nearly as easy or transparent. So I wondered how hard would it be to set up a registered charity in UK. Long story short, it's not too hard, but you do need assets to do it.

This is why I am setting up this fundraising page. If I am successful, I will be able to go ahead and set up my own charity to support children development and medical causes back in Belarus in an internationally accessible form. If it will not be enough, I will transfer the funds raised to Chernobyl Children's Project https://www.justgiving.com/ccp with an ad hoc campaign.

--------------------------------------------------

In the meantime, I will climb Mont Blanc on the 6th of July to get started. I've never climbed anything, but it will likely be fine.

The fact that I am doing this feels great. I am not driven by an aspiration or a vision or desire but by what I can only describe as a cocktail of curiosity and a will to confidently go somewhere beyond what you ever imagined for yourself.

I would like to get there.

      Looking forward to hearing all about it- both the climb and setting up the charity. Certainly loving the photos so far.. Really great initiative in both respects.
