Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Next year, I’ll be travelling with the charity Africa’s Gift to Malealea, Lesotho, to work alongside a small mountain community.The team will be working to improve environmental sustainability, agricultural development & promoting awareness of health & safety.

In order to improve these areas we will be
- working alongside the community to plant a variety of fast-growing trees this will lessen soil erosion & will improve soil stability
- building some weather-resistant gardens to help maintain a constant supply of food throughout the year.
- constructing some raised gardens for the older community members who are still heavily dependant on agriculture but struggle with manual work.
- Promoting the Wonderbag, a new way cooking that lessens open fire use

We know that women in rural communities spend most of their days collecting firewood & cooking on open fires. Approximately 2 million people die annually from open fires and related illnesses, with over half the victims being under the age of 5. The Wonderbag works by placing a pot that has been brought to the boil inside it, sealing it, then leaving it to cook without any additional external heat source. By doing this, the time & effort needed to cook is greatly reduced as well as reducing the risks of using open fires & the affect on the environment.

I NEED YOUR HELP!! I’LL BE SWIMMING IN HAMPSTEAD HEATH PONDS’ ANNUAL CHRISTMAS DAY RACE!!

The race is 40m long and can be in temperatures as low as -4 degrees! Please support my cause and donate as much as you can. I'd also be grateful if you can please SHARE with as many people as possible, as I need all the support I can get ;-)

Thank you for all your help and if you have any other questions or suggestions on how to fundraise, please get in touch. Currently, I’m also involved in a number of fundraising activities such as car washes during parents' evenings, bag packing at Waitrose and a school disco.
