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.
Below is what Ava has personally written:
"I am trying to raise £100 towards a very important charity called Inspired Through Sport. They are one of the biggest supporters of British athletes in the UK. Sport (in particular athletics and gymnastics) is very important in my life and I want to help other athletes.
This charity helps as many athletes as possible towards
their expensive training, travel and nutrition costs to continue to win GOLD medals for Great Britain. I would also love in the future to compete for Great Britain (or Canada!) and if this was the case this charity would help me".
Half of your donation will also go to help support my school (Rockbeare Primary).
If you are able to make a donation then I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you for reading.

Good luck, Ava! If you make it to Team GB or Team Canada, you'll have some fans in Finland, too!
