Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I want to support charities that are close to my heart and charities that I can directly impact. A lot of the time you donate money and never really know where it ends up! That is why any money you donate to the foundation will be handed directly by me to the charities and I can ensure the money is being spent in the best way. No money goes to any running costs or expenses incurred by the foundation.
The Anishvin Foundation will grow to provide the necessary funds to charities that really deserve it. I will personally be visiting the charities and places where the money is needed and make sure every single penny/cent will go directly to the source. The first alignment to the Anishvin Foundation is the Dr Choksey Albinism Foundation in Kenya (a place close to my heart) that raises money for children that suffer from Albinism. While their skin might be the centre of attention, it is actually their eyesight that poses the biggest challenge. As kids, they are immediately registered as BLIND and their hopes and dreams squashed!
However all they need is a pair of glasses (like a lot of us do) to help them to see clearly and learn like any other kid in school. These glasses can cost as little as £10.
The Anishvin Foundation will be supporting this charity amongst many others (to be announced) and will keep you informed through videos (on the Anishvin Youtube Channel ) as to exactly where the money is going.
I don't ask for something without giving anything - so I am going to complete a number of physical challenges to earn your donation. It all starts with the UK's 3 Peaks Challenge. On Tuesday 21st May I will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scaffels Pike, and Snowdon in 24 hours. This is the first of many challenges that will include Mount Kenya, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Mont Blanc. I will be partaking in cycle rides from London to Edinburgh and a whole load of other crazy challenges.
Thank you so much for your donation, I can't wait to show you what a difference it will make!
