Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
At the beginning of July, myself and a group of 13 others will be travelling to Uganda to volunteer in a rural community for two weeks. During this time, we will be involved in helping renovate the school, this will include fitting new floors to the classrooms to ensure the school is safe to remain open. In addition to this, we will be working with a company called Days for Girls that help to educate young girls on how to make reusable sanitary products in third world countries. In order to help cover the costs of my flights and transport, I need to raise £750, anything that is raised over this will go towards helping the village in Uganda. To raise the money, I will be walking a marathon (26.2miles) around London, which will finish at the High Commision of Uganda in London.
