Weʼre raising £500 to create a fully accessible camper van for my music mad sister Jody!
- Oxford, UK
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 lot of wonderful people in the camper van world, who aren't located near us, have asked if they can donate a few pennies rather than their time helping with the refurbishment so this page is for you - thank you so very much!x
We are raising money for my beautiful and incredibly strong-willed sister, Jody, who suffers from CHARGE syndrome.
She loves music, especially festivals, however due to her disabilities, without a specially converted and adapted camper van, staying away from home is near on impossible for her as part of her conditions means she requires over night oxygen and ventilation and a special bed as well as making life in general very complicated for her.
For the last 8 years, my boyfriend and I have been lucky enough to take Jody to WOMAD, Wilderness and even Glastonbury festivals with the charity Festival Spirit. However, last year, when they were unable to accommodate us, we realised it's time that she had the independence and freedom she deserves to attend as many festivals and gigs all over the country so we started to think about having her own camper van - however it will need to be very specific!
We have so far raised £4000 thanks to some very amazing people and have been lucky enough to purchase a bus to convert, that's right, she is going to have her own bus!!
As well as individual donations, which are so very grate
fully received, we are also looking for company sponsorship in return for advertising once the project is finished like wise if companies are able to offer help with the conversion - please do get in touch -Jodyscampervan@gmail.com.
My sister is truly at her happiest surrounded baselines and fun smiley happy people so lets help get her to the party!
