Weʼve raised £10 to Slow food

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.
Together with my work colleagues, I am doing my first 10 km run this weekend. I know it is not a lot of running, but with a bit of training now, I am challenging myself to do it in under one hour.
I thought it's a great opportunity to support and raise money for causes I believe in so here I am!
I believe that we can challenge and change the things around us and the first step is to start with ourselves and our daily routine. And something we can all have a say about is food!
My plan is to try and fundraise money for four great initiatives that challenge food issues from different angles and scales. The four heroes for this campaign are FareShare, Feedback, Olio and Slow Food.
Together they tackle food poverty, food waste, food diversity and its heritage and environmental and social welfare implications related to the food industries from crops to shelves.
They mainly do this though education, policy making, hands on work by gleaning fields or taking surplus food from supermarkets and distributing to local charities/food banks and facilitating platforms for 1:1 interactions of neighbours to exchange unwanted food items that would otherwise go to waste.
Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. It was founded in 1989 in Italy.
They are a not–for–profit organisation seeking to promote a better way to eat, celebrating the rich food traditions of the different nations that make up the UK, and protecting our edible biodiversity.
I never ran a fundraising action before and I know it's a rather late start, but I am confident we can achieve the target! The plan is to support these four movements with £100 each and any donation is welcomed!
I would appreciate if donation are made in such a way that the outcome is balanced and all charities get more all less the same support!
