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.
I am running the 2019 Edinburgh Marathon this year and i have chosen to raise money for Wester Hailes Youth Agency. They have helped me through out my school years and even when i left and now i feel it is time to give back to them. Below is what WHYA is all about.
The Wester Hailes Youth Agency works with young people aged 8-25 in South West Edinburgh. The Youth Agency's aims are to relieve poverty and disadvantage, to advance learning and to further participation and citizenship.
They believe that the needs, abilities, and aspirations of young people should be recognised, understood and met within a supportive environment, which encourages them to achieve their goals and improve their outcomes. They work with over 1,260 young people and in order to achieve their aims.
- Drop in Provision

They are responsive to the needs of young people and develop their services accordingly. The young people they work with face huge issues in their lives and they aim to provide services that are easy to access in their community and which complement each other.
