Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
The angry face and a cross eye emoji's was the response I got after telling my Mum, her only son is dropping 13,000 ft out the sky.
Safe to say she didn't approve...at first!
As a Digital Marketing Professional, I was excited to hear about an organisation taking the initiative to use modern digital platforms and industry knowledge, to help create projects for individuals in need.
The cost for jump has been paid for from my own pocket, all support from you will go to Year Here.
Year Here is a pioneering social enterprise. Launched in 2013, Year Here is a postgraduate course in social innovation based in London, designed to cultivate entrepreneurial approaches to entrenched social problems.
Year Here Fellows start by spending 5 months volunteering in care homes, homeless hostels and youth services across London where they work directly with service users and lead ‘innovation projects’ that aim to leave a legacy and pave the way for future innovations. Fellows then go on to run a community engagement project for a local council or housing association client before developing their own social venture idea from scratch.
I will be raising funds for Year Here's incubator phase, where Fellows are supported by entrepreneurs and experts to rapidly develop and test their ideas for social change. Many of these seeds grow into successful social businesses and charities beyond the programme.
In the last couple of years, the Year Here incubator has launched a raft of social ventures in fields as diverse as ethical fashion, social design, homelessness and educational inequality. They've been recognised as Shackleton Leaders, Ashoka Changemakers, New Radicals and Housing Excellence Award Winners.
