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.
Our son was born and grew up in the British Virgin Islands, where we have lived and worked for the last 26 years. On 6th September 2017, while we were delivering our son back to school in the UK, Hurricane Irma devastated our home, livelihood and community with destructive winds of more than 200 mph. We were very very lucky to have been away from home when it happened. But we have so far been unable to return home to help rebuild our community. Our son has so far been continuing a fairly normal life at his boarding school. We would like this to continue and so are trying to raise some funding towards his school fees, while we get back to the BVI and are able to start earning a living again.
