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.


This disabled group in Mexico need a new bus to enable them to continue the amazing work they do. They travel around the state of Morelos in Mexico, repairing wheelchairs, and all of them are themselves in wheelchairs. There is little help for disabled people in Mexico and particularly among the poor. Thanks to help from Rotary Clubs, they provide all the spare parts free, they only ask for a small payment for their labour. I worked with them for a couple of days and was so impressed - they worked extremely long hours to make sure all the chairs brought to them were repaired and renewed 150 chairs in under 2 days. Their bus is constantly breaking down and is also too small for them and their wheelchairs. Please help and donate towards a new bus so that they can continue with the wonderful work they do.

    Almost at 70% still, the donations have really slowed down now. I was at the Cathedral today, helping to man our Rotary Stall at the Sights and Sounds of Ripon and got talking to a man who is also going to do the abseil. So I was very encouraged to find he is finding it slow going for sponsorship. The group ALEM have just finished another succesful 3 day repair workshop. They are on FB, look at ALEM Morelos to see what they get up to.. Please donate a little if you can, it is a very worthwhile cause.

    I am almost at 70% of my target, so pleased and grateful for all this support. This morning I was surprised and delighted to receive a donation from friends who no longer live in this are. Then today I have a talk about Aquabox and the group made a donation to my sponsored abseil. Thank you all friends who have made donations and thank you in anticipation to those who will be doing so soon. Xx
