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.
Laura has signed up with Camps International to go to Columbia in the summer of 2020. She needs to raise £3960 which will cover the cost of her travel, accommodation and food. It will also pay towards the costs of local labour and materials.
Projects she could take part in include building houses for impoverished families, installing new water supplies, improving sanitation and planting trees.
Laura is incredibly excited about this opportunity and is planning many different fund raising events. If she gets there she could make a real difference to someone's life.
