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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

In Autumn 2019 I will be going to Ghana, West Africa for 2 weeks to work with some of the poorest children. I will be helping with their development through play, teaching and even repairing crumbling schools as well as helping build new ones.

I am aiming to raise £1000 with some going towards my fee's for the volunteer company (www.originalvolunteers.co.uk) and some towards Save the Children. In 2016 they helped 22 million children in poverty and I am hoping that this donation can go towards helping millions more by the end of 2019.

I will be holding an honest box cake sale in work at the beginning of December and a raffle fundraising event in Spring to raise funds (date and prizes to be confirmed).

I am asking for a lot but this is something I have been passionate about for a long time and I am hoping I can finally achieve a dream by helping children and families less fortunate than myself. This isn't a holiday, it's work and I will be there to make a difference to lives. Donating the full £1000 would provide food and water, but it wouldn't be able to hold a child's hand who probably has no other hand to hold. I want to personally make an impact on lives.

Every penny is appreciated, and not only will I be making a difference, but you will too. Thank you.

If I am unable to get enough donations and can't fund the rest myself, every penny donated will go to Save the Children.

    I can’t believe I’ve almost hit the 25% mark already in less than a week. I don’t have the words to explain how much to each donation means to me.
