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.

In the summer of 2020, I am hoping with your support to travel to Borneo and learn about the many issues that are being tackled there. These include the deforestation of their beautiful rainforests and the destruction of the Orangutan's natural habitat. Our group also intend to help in local schools with their maths and literacy programme and improve their infrastructure by working with local tradesman on building projects. I will be there for four weeks in four different locations including a five day trek through the rainforest. I am completing the expedition with Camps International. They are a world renowned ethical expedition provider to many different locations around the world. I will hopefully learn many different life skills and gain an appreciation and understanding of other cultures. I need to raise £4000 in order to go on the trip and this money will pay for flights, accommodation and food. The money spent in Borneo supports local workers and local communities. I have attached a link to the great work Camps International undertake around the world. Over the next 20 months I will be running a number of fund raising initiatives including riding the equivalent distance to Borneo which is 7,306.84 mi (11,759.22 km) holding bake sales, looking for local corporate sponsorship and by working. (Any financial support you could provide would be greatly appreciated:)
Thanks in advance
