What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


I am extremely proud and excited to say that in April 2017, I will be heading out to South Africa to volunteer and work at the Elephant Care and Research Project, in Plettenburg Bay. For anyone that doesn't know me and my (boardering obsessive) passion for Elephants, this oppourtunity truly means the world to me.

The project is the first of its kind in South Africa and constantly aims to place Elephants, living in poor welfare conditions, in an improved environment. Over the course of my stay, I will be taking on the role of Volunteer Reasearcher and Carer. My duties will include monitoring behaviour of the herd, night time observations, dung and urine sampling, preparing food for the Elephants, creating enrichments and feeding milk bottles to the babies. Along with this, I have also opted to teach in a local primary school, once a week, making a difference in whatever way I can.

Please help me raise enough money to make my volunteering possible and to help aid this magnificent project - eternally grateful wouldn't even cover it!

Thank you.
