Weʼre raising £2,000 to fund Lucy and Harriet's volunteer construction project this summer in Costa Rica.
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.
GVI (Global Vision International) is an organisation which, every year sends approximately 2000 willing, enthusiastic and committed volunteers to try to make a difference in the lives of children in disadvantaged countries such as Cambodia or Costa Rica. We are two sixth form students at King Edward VI Grammar School, Louth, who want to be involved in making that difference. In July 2018, we will be undertaking a two week volunteer programme in Manuel Antonia, Costa Rica, where we will assist in construction projects, entailing the maintenance and building of schools and play areas. This work will allow underprivileged children to access the much needed help and facilities required for a better future. Whilst passionate about helping these children, we will also be gaining invaluable experiences of our own.
We are currently working hard to raise the necessary funds for this experience by arranging various events. We know that we can make a difference but we believe that you too could also be part of this ambition. Therefore, we would be hugely appreciative of any donation that you would be willing to contribute towards the funds we need. We have already contributed £3400 to GVI to partipate in this experience but we also have to raise money for flights, estimated at about £2000 for us both with any excess being directed straight into the project.
On our return, we will contact all sponsors directly to share a newsletter of our achievements and success, which will have been your success too! Thank you in advance.
