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 name is Ellie and I am hoping to take part in the World Challenge Expedition to India in July 2019. This will be a life changing experience and it will give me the opportunity to work alongside local people on community projects and to expereince different cultures. It will equip me with new life skills including leadership, teamwork and money management. It will be a personal challenge, both physically and mentally, but it will be an incredibly rewarding experience.
To help me work towards this goal, I need to raise £3000. Over the next couple of years me and my family will be carrying out various fund raising activities including auctions, running a 1/2 marathon, car boot sales and encouraging people to shop through easyfundraising.org.uk , which is a site that will automatically donate a percentage every time you shop on-line.
About World Challenge
World Challenge works in partnership with over 1000 schools around the world to prepare young people for life. We believe that life skills, such as resilience, empathy and leadership, are developed through real life experience.
A World Challenge expedition puts the students in control of their trip. They plan their itinerary, raise the necessary funds and then lead the expedition once they are in country. We believe that fundraising and preparing for an expedition is as important as the expedition itself in teachings students important life skills, such as teamwork and money management.
The expedition programme gives enormous opportunity for the development of life and learning skills that will help to equip students for their future, be it in education, training or employment.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my challenge and for any donations that are made.
