    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.

    Story

    In November I am going to Highlands of South West China to volunteer at the Giant Panda Reserve. The Panda base integrates scientific research, captive breeding and reintroduction into the wild. My volunteer duties will be cleaning internal and external cages, preparing the bamboo lunches and making lots of Panda cake.

    As a volunteer I have paid for the trip and flights myself, however I did not calculate the huge cost of vaccinations to travel to such a region – I am scarily looking at a bill of upwards of £560 just to keep my health intact. The experience will be wonderful but it now comes at a cost that I will be paying for some time.

    I am putting items on ebay and having bakes sales to raise some funds, but if you can you spare even £1 to help towards my travel vaccination costs I would be most grateful.

    I have a normal 9-5 office job, but at weekends/spare time I help out where I can with environmental projects. Organizing beach cleans, charity walks and helping out local conservation groups and National Trust. During my holiday, I like to take time out to spend volunteering.
