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.


Hi all,

Against all odds, I have to challenge myself and run the Leeds Half Marathon on the 13th May.

After looking at many wonderful charities I could fundraise for, I decided to settle for GIPSIL, which is a local charity that works with children, young people and families in the most disadvantaged communities of Leeds. It provides housing for vulnerable adults, care leavers, young parents, homeless teens, and ex offenders. They also focus on many other services such as well being and outreach programs in primary schools across Leeds.

The charity being local, I found this to be a great way to encourage a charity doing work which is both relevant and needed in our city.

Please do support me in anyway you can, any donation will much appreciated. If not do feel free to come and watch me suffer for 21kilometres :)

PS: Instead of a cool picture of me running (because I dont) I have included for your viewing pleasure a picture of me being strangled by an elephant.

Lots of love xoxoxo
