Weʼre raising £150 to help Save the Rhino and prevent the extinction of the northern white rhinos
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.

Hi! My name’s Belnice and as you may already be able to tell from this page, I really love rhinos! :)
You may have heard about the death of Sudan earlier this year, in March. He was a male northern white rhino and he was 45 years old when he unfortunately passed away. The good news is that Sudan’s death was not at the hands of poachers (people who kill and hunt animals illegally). However the bad news is that he was the last male of his species...
Now there are only two northern white rhinos, but they’re both females, so they cannot reproduce and will soon go extinct. Northern white rhinos are beautiful animals and the last thing I want is for them to disappear. So I managed to get my house at school to support and raise money for a particular charity. This is called Save the Rhino. The charity’s goal is to help 5 species of rhino thrive in future generations which is amazing. We held cake sales, sold wristbands and even did a sponsored silence for 12 hours to raise money for the charity! In the end my house managed to raise £350 for the charity!!!
Now I would love to increase that amount and raise £150 more to bring us to £500. This money will go towards the Save the Rhino charity and will be used to support rangers and rhinos in both Asia and Africa. I hope that some of it will also go towards funding the research to fertilise the northern white rhinos succesfully.
