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 charity.

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


Hi All

I’ve been lucky to be selected to compete in the longest and toughest race in the world the Mongol Derby. It‘s a 1000 km race across the Mongolian Steppe on 40 semi wild ponies .

There is no marked route and you have to navigate your own way through desert, salt plains, grass lands ,mountains, forest and rivers. At the end of thd long day in the saddle there is no hot shower , comfy bed or slap up meal. Instead you camp with the nomads or under the stars and eat with them. Their diet is mainly mutton and noodles.

The race takes 7-10 days to complete and you are only allowed to carry 5kg of kit with you.In order to take part in this epic race I need to raise almost £13000. Some of this goes the the charity Cool Earth and the money also goes to the 700 nomads who provide accomodation and the ponies.

Please can you support me in this challenge of a lifetime .Every penny really does help.

Many thanks

Charmaine x
