    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    I've been a proud member of Elwood Lifesaving club in Melbourne. Since being back in London, one of the things I really wanted to do is to head out to the Agean sea to help the volunteer lifeguards there. They managed to find sponsorship for equipment, but the maintenance / fuel / repair costs will still have to be met even though all volunteers travelled and lived on their own expense.

    I haven't managed to head out there yet, but the least I can do is to fundraise, so they can continue the project.

    Sometime between 5-11 Sep, my team and I will be attempting to swim across Lake Geneva which is 69km long. It'll take us at least a whole day if not more to complete it. It may even coincide with my birthday! Even if you're not able to donate, please read about what they do and share it with people:
