£22raised of £1,100 target by 2 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,100 to fund a volunteer expedition with the charity Think Pacific to Fiji by running a marathon in Edinburgh on 03/03/2019.

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.


This summer I plan on going with an expedition team ,for one month, from the charity Think Pacific to Fiji. It will involve taking part in leading education, extracurricular and sports activities to a number of the 20,000 children who live in hardship every year in Fiji. I didn't realise myself that Fiji has a large amount of its population living in poverty with over one third of children living in poverty, along with only 5% of all children getting an early years education. Through this trip I hope to bring the facilities and help needed for the Fijian people.

-30% of the £1100 goes towards donations and sustainability for long term aid to provide annual resources.

-37% contributes to my volunteer costs in being able to stay in Fiji.

-The remaining 33% goes to the charity for staff training, expedition equipment, project planning and promotion.

Any size donation would be amazing.

Thank you
