Weʼre raising £5,000 to subsidise international trips for members of Girlguiding from Clifton, Bristol.
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.
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.
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.

Plastic free January starts tomorrow! I’m nervous but also strangely looking forward to it. Thanks to everyone who has already donated!

Best of luck Nicki! Still impressed by the thoroughness of your challenge. Certainly opened my eyes to how wide spread plastic use is. Hope you achieve the target you are aiming for.
