Weʼre raising £1,000 to travel to Indonesia to volunteer in communities less fortunate than ours.
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.
I am travelling to Indonesia later on this year to volunteer in child protection/welfare homes and hospitals, along with teaching in schools to children who are much less fortunate than us. Many of the children in these homes are orphans; having endured horrific childhoods and living in complete contrast to the lives we live here in the UK. Volunteers bring an immense amount of happiness and love to these children and it makes their day to have visitors to play with and teach them.
I am intending on going to university when I return to study paramedic science, a job that will require huge amounts of compassion, empathy and experience - and I cannot think of a better way to begin my career than working and helping the most vulnerable groups of people in the heart of their own community.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated and I look forward to sharing my journey and making a difference to these children's lives with you.
