Weʼre raising £300 to help Lucy get to Atlanta USA with Dumfries and Galloway global volunteering.
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.
Lucy is travelling to America in October to work with homeless and vulnerable groups in Atlanta Georgia. This includes working in soup kitchens and also will be given the opportunity to visit Martin Luther Kings hometown and learn more about the civil rights movement.
They will then be visiting Washington and having a bit of down time sightseeing in New York.
This is a fantastic opportunity and is amazing for a 16 year old to experience this. She is doing other fundraising projects and has been volunteering all year round to prepare for this once in a lifetime trip.
Any help to get her there is much appreciated.
