    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.


    A few months ago, off to Kenya I did go;
    To teach in Melon Mission and Silver Bells;
    The impact on me was impossible to tell.

    The children were special, and the teachers too.
    All working for nothing, what a wonderful thing to do.

    Their lives are so simple;
    and they survive on love,
    Hungry tummies and lots of hugs.

    But laughter and fun was all around;
    how humbling to me was that sound.

    I wanted to help but how, I was not sure,
    Until I met Eunice, a single mum of four.
    Her life devoted to her four girls,
    Along with 300 others in Silver Bells.

    She adopted Faith who is only four;
    a horrific life for her was in store.
    Eunice has dedicated her life;
    to keep Faith away from trouble and strife.

    Eva, her eldest, is a house maid;
    Cynthia finished high school with good grades;
    Abigail who is still at school happily;
    Completes her lovely family.

    For Cynthia, there is no future unless, to college she attends;
    so this is how my Birthday money, I am going to spend.

    To sponsor Cynthia through college years;
    I know this will cause a few tears;
    that I can guarantee, in public school a teacher she will be.

    Thank you Gail

    About the fundraiser


    It is my 50th Birthday very soon, I know how did that happen? I have a lovely life, with great family and friends, who I know will want to spoil me rotten. I am asking that instead of presents this year, you make a donation to raise money to send Cynthia to college. Thanks
