£525raised of £2,000 target by 19 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to allow me (a 14 year old scout), and subsidise young scouts from poorer countries, to attend the World Scout Jamboree in USA in 2019

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.

Story

Hi, my name is Cora Edwards, I'm 14 years old, and I'm one of the few lucky scouts and Explorers who have been selected to participate in the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA. The only problem is I've got to raise A LOT of money to get there.

Backround

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held between 22nd July and 2nd August 2019. It is held every four years with around 45,000 attending from over 150 different countries. This year it will be held at the Summit Bechtel reserve in West Virginia, America.

The World Scout Jamboree is an event aimed at bringing together scouting communities from around the world to seek new adventures and experiences, as well as learning about each other's different lives and cultures. As a participant my aim will be to make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

The cost for me to attend the Jamboree is £4,000. This may sound a lot but, not only does it cover everything from my flights and accommodation (tents - not 5 star hotels!), it also helps to support members from poorer countries who otherwise may not be able to attend (it wouldn't be the same without them).

What am I doing?

To help me fund my journey I have set myself the challenge of doing a 15 mile hike at night! I have never really done a proper hike at night so this will definitely be a challenge, but a challenge I'm willing to face.

As well as this I've been running children's art classes, bag packing, cake sales and catering at events to raise money and I'm planning to run a concert for my whole school!

However, even all this isn't likely to be nearly enough which is why any contributions, no matter how big or small would be really welcome.

Thank you so much

    Hi, I’m Cora I’m 14, I’m in year 9, and I live in Somerset, England. I like dancing, sports and music, and my adorable border collie Barney I’ve been in scouting since Beavers (all the way to Explorers) which is why it is so exiting for me to be in the Somershire unit for the WSJ
