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.

On Sunday, I will be attempting a 5 mile Tough Mudder run. For those of you who don’t know, Tough Mudders are the hardest endurance events and not only do you have to run a long way, but you also have to negotiate lots of difficult obstacles and wade through freezing muddy water. At the age of 15 I have been given special dispensation special dispensation by the organisers to take part because I am raising money for such a good cause:
In July 2019, I and a small group from school will be embarking on a month long adventure to Northern Tanzania. Throughout our 4 weeks there we plan to give back to the local people - whether this be teaching or helping to build basic facilities that we take for granted in our own lives. This will be a big challenge for us but we will discover new communities as we trek and we hope to discover lots about the world and ourselves.
However, with this amazing opportunity comes the initial challenge of raising the money to fund the expedition. My target is £4,250 which is why I am about to put myself through the Tough Mudder
I would be really grateful for any support. It really is for a very good cause.
Thank you ever so much!

Dearest Friends and Family, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your generous donations. Without it, i would not have been abl to raide 123% of my initial aim! Two weekends ago, I successfully completed my Tough Mudder, which was extremely challenging in the 32 degree heat! However, I really enjoyed it and i would highly reccomend it to anyone looking for a challenge! Thank you once again! Lots of love, Ben
