    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.


    My Daughter Katie has been chosen by the Welsh charitable organisation Urdd Gobaith Cymru, to travel with a small group of young people from across Wales to the Patagonia region of Argentina (which was settled over 150 years ago by a pioneering group of Welsh families). As a condition of being chosen, Katie must raise the cost of travel and living expenses - £2575. Then in October she will travel to Patagonia to visit Welsh communities and schools to take part in events and voluntary work.

    It would be great if you could help Katie by contributing towards her goal. It would be amazing to be able to raise the money to send her to Patagonia. Getting her back...? Well...

    Mae fy merch, Katie wedi cael ei dewis i fynd i'r Wladfa efo grŵp bach o bobl ifanc o Gymru. O ganlyniad i hyn, mae'n rhaid iddi godi'r arian (£2575) i deithio, byw a gweithio am bythefnos. Ym mis Hydref, bydd hi'n ymweld â chymunedau Cymreig ac ysgolion Cymraeg i gymryd rhan mewn digwyddiadau a gwaith gwirfoddol.

    Diolch yn fawr am unrhyw swm y gallwch ei roi.

      Thanks to all the kind people who have offered donations to me in person. Unfortunately, there is no way to add this amount to the online total but every penny will go towards Katie's target. Thank You. Diolch yn Fawr.

      Good luck Katie, Dave don't use the same razor you use for your legs, we still remember the time you tried to shave your b*lls and left them in tatters, thank goodness for Sue and her nurses uniform

      The beard is impressive, but probably not suited to this weather.

      I hope she has a great trip. Maybe you will have a bit more time for music now.

    How could I help Katie raise £2575? I needed to use all my skills and qualities to encourage people to contribute. A tough, physical challenge. So I grew a beard. After months of gruelling training, I am in peak condition. I am ready. Ready to have my hair and beard shaved off.
