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.
This summer, myself and my friend Aine are planning on volunteering in India for the month of July. Throughout our time there, our work will mainly be based in an orphanage but we will also be involved in teaching English, working alongside carers for disabled children and visiting slum living areas of extreme poverty. Given the travel, length of our stay and funding necessary to offer our support we are required to do a level of fundraising before we go!
So, to kickstart our fundraisng, I have decided to run 5k everyday for 25 days in the hope of raising some money and helping to improve my health at the same time! Donations of any size would be greatly appreciated and I plan to keep you updated on my progress (or struggles) throughout! Thanks in advance, Carla x
