    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.

    Story

    Our Cause

    We are raising money to take Brownies and Guides to Paris in October 2019. Brownies (aged 7-10) and Guides (aged 10-14) are members of Girlguiding, which provides a safe, girl-only space for young people to explore their place in the world, have adventures, and develop into wonderful young women.

    For many of these girls, this will be the first time they have left the UK, and they are sure to learn lots from the experience. However, the trip will be expensive, and not all of them will be able to afford it without help.

    We aim to fundraise enough to subsidise the trip so that all of our young members can attend.

    Current Project

    Hi, I'm Nicki, AKA Snowflake, one of the Brownie leaders. During January 2019, I'm challenging myself to buy no plastic. That means no plastic food packaging, no toothpaste tubes, no little treats here or there. Nothing, nada, zip.

    I would really appreciate it if you would sponsor me in this massive challenge!

    If you want to know how I'm getting on, you can follow along on my blog: The 57th Snowflake.

      Well, Plastic-Free January is officially over. I survived a month. I feel like I've learned a lot through the experience, and I certainly hope that I've raised some awareness as well as some funds. Thank you to everyone who donated - you are all stars! Attached is a picture of one of my completely plastic-free meals. Home-made hummus, bread from a bakery, carrots and cheese bought with no packaging. Yum!

      23 days in, and I'm still going strong. I've had some challenges and some successes. Particular issues have been: - Milk - Toothpaste - Toilet roll - Fresh meat - Time (to visit different shops for different things) - Organisation (to soak chickpeas overnight rather than just opening a tin) There is plastic in so many more things than you expect. To keep up with my journey, you can visit my blog: www.the57thsnowflake.wordpress.com
