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.


What we are going to do

My cousin and I are volunteering over the Christmas and New Year period to head off to India to help on a school and orphanage charity project. The children are aged between 5 -14 and have limited access to support. Our main effort is to support the founders of the charity who have given their lives to supporting the community. We will be working on several projects including:

Education, teaching basic English and Math's

Preparing food and serving food for the children

Running activities including sports and recreation

Personal hygiene which requires supplies (toothbrushes, soap, etc)

The school is reliant on charity donations to fund and buy supplies for the children. Other projects include visiting the nearby villages to provide food for the the aged, widowed and children. Supporting sewing projects so the young women can earn a living to help themselves out of poverty.

We are looking for your support to contribute funds that will go directly to all the projects when we arrive on the 30th Dec 2018. We have 3 weeks on site and with your help and support we hope to make a difference to as many children and families as possible that will not be as fortunate as our own over this Christmas period. To find out more about the charity and the projects you can visit

Helen and I thank you in advance of our trip for any donation no matter how small as it will all make a difference to these children.

Thank you Alison, Helen
