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.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I’m really excited to tell you that I have been selected to volunteer overseas with VSO on an International Citizen Service placement.
ICS works with communities that have specifically requested their help. It also aims to inspire young people in the UK and overseas to become active citizens who are passionate about long term community development.
The first part of my placement is a challenge to raise 800 towards the work of VSO and their ICS partners. The money raised will go towards enabling the overall costs of ICS, ensuring they can to continue sending youth volunteers to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities.
My place on the programme is already paid for - visas, flights, travel and medical insurance, medication, vaccines, food, the lot! This is because ICS believes in the positive impact of young people and wants to offer them an opportunity to change their lives and the lives of others. All the funds volunteers raise will support all ICS partners to run the programme effectively, always contributing to their vital work.
Amongst other things, I’ll be backpacking/camping the West Highland Way and you can keep track of how I get on here on my JustGiving page or https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000989449766 . Any contribution from you will make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries, so please dig deep!
Thanks for your support!

About the fundraiser
I'm Brian! I have a passion for travelling and want to see as much as I can. Since returning home from my 2 year trek away, I felt I wanted to do something that felt more fulfilling. That's when I decided to go for a program with ICS!
