Weʼre raising £1,000 to support 4 charities that are important to us: Cameroon Catalyst, Dutch Cancer Society, Mental Health Foundation and RNLI
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.
We are in such a privileged position to be reaching the grand age of 100, with basically all the material stuff that we currently need. So with out requesting donations to our 50 foot yacht, we'd be very grateful if you would like to give us a gift, if you would instead donate to one of our worthy causes:
Cameroon Catalyst - Tom's choice: Cameroon Catalyst is an International Development Charity lead by students across the UK. I have volunteered for the charity for the past four years and am involved with the current Water, Sanitation and Hygiene project, part of which aims to provide sources of clean drinking water to rural communities in Eastern Cameroon. The charity have already delivered five wells to vulnerable villages in the region and future funding will help towards the construction of more wells.
Dutch Cancer Society - Clive and Mandy's choice: Cancer is a disease that has affected both of our families and cancer care has come on in some leaps and bounds in the past few years. More people are living their lives with cancer rather than dying from it and as 1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer, we feel it is an important cause to support.
The Mental Health Foundation - Molly's Choice: Historically mental health has not been a topic of frequent discussion in our society, yet is such a prevalent issue. Luckily, as of recent, it has been discussed much more and we have been much more open about our own experiences with it. Being such an important topic within our family I decided I would like to choose this foundation as my choice in order to help support their cause and further improve our understanding and acceptance of those suffering with mental health issues.
RNLI Lifeboats - Clive and Mandy's choice: Having spent many an hour, in a small yacht, with young children, we know how a pleasant sail can turn into the feeling of being churned in a washing machine! Knowing that RNLI volunteers are there to help, advise and rescue means so much to pleasure sailors such as ourselves.
Many thanks for reading - no need to choose, we will split any donations 4 ways.
