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.
Right people, This year I have decided to run and fundraise for two charites this year and split the donations equally.
The way I plan to fundraise is by running a 12 hour solo race, locally, and a few other runs inbetween and these runs are;
Cannonball Trailblaster Endurance 12hr - 30/06/2018
Brun Valley 10k - 29/04/2018
Windmill 10k - 11/11/2018
BEAVERBROOKS Blackpool - 13/05/2018
I will be adding more races throughout the year and in December whatever I have raised will be splitting it equally between both charities.
Please see below information on both charities
The first is a kick-starter project called Ahimsa Farm Animal Refuge (AFAR) who are setting up a farm to help mistreated farm animals live a healthy and happy life - this is their mission statement...
"Our mission is to provide a safe place for farm animals to live out their lives, free from abuse and exploitation; where they will be loved and respected as the sentient beings they are instead of being treat like a commodity.
We also aim to show the public that these animals they may regard as 'food' are capable of the same range of emotions as the animals that they cherish as pets; breaking down the barriers, and allowing them to make the connection in hopes that they will then extend the boundaries of their compassion to all non-human animals.
We also aim to show people just how easy and fulfilling a vegan lifestyle can be; we will provide food, recipes, meal plans, advice etc to encourage people to make changes to their lifestyle that will benefit themselves, the animals and the planet."
If you would like more information about what they plan on doing or want to help out on the farm feel free to contact them:
The second chairty I have decided is Hayley's Hugs which is a charity that gives presents to kids at Christmas that are in Hospitals. This page was set up after their own daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. For more informtion visit the website or facebook page..
