Weʼre raising £15,720 to Row across the Atlantic Ocean to bring an end to modern day slavery

London, UK

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I am taking on the challenge of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean as part of a team in 2021. I am raising money for the International Justice Mission (IJM), the world's biggest anti-slavery organisation.

IJM's vision is to rescue thousands, protect millions and prove that justice for the poor is possible. With your help, I can Row to Rescue thousands of people trapped in slavery today.

Your support to fund me will enable me to maximise profit for this incredible charity, and for thousands of vulnerable people who need our help more than ever right now. In the current pandemic mass unemployment, high levels of debt and little government safety net creates increased opportunities for traffickers to exploit the world's poorest. Acute economic disruption creates significant risks for those in poverty, through food shortages and loss of already minimal income.

Issues of injustice have always weighed heavily on my heart. I often feel powerless to make a difference in a world where slavery is still rife. I am keen to combine my urge to combat injustice with my desire to push my body and mind to the extreme.
