Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund my World Scout Jamboree experience. I'll be working with over 45,000 scouts from all over the world to offer the best camp ever!

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.
In the Summer of 2019 I've been chosen out of a list of many to take part in the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. It's another wonderful opportunity to change the lives of many young people from around the world, from over 150 countries to be precise. I'm a big believer in everyone having the same chance in life and this is a perfect chance to demonstrate that. I'll be working as a volunteer at the camp like everyone else. Any little help will help me get there and also cover the costs of the camp.
The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.
Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond your home—and beyond the boundaries of our countries—to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime!
Thanks in advance for any donation.
Yours , David Thomas

About the fundraiser
I've been actively involved in Scouts for 3 years now and love everything outdoors. Teaching young people life skills if very enjoyable and helps them both grow in confidence and also develops their social skills. I'm passionate about sports and love football!
