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.
A parishioner of Our Lady & St Peter's Church, East Grinstead, UK, I am cycling 1500 miles to Fatima, Portugal, this summer, in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady, and 50th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act. I will start from the memorial to unborn children in East Grinstead on 6th June, and finish at the Chapel of the Apparitions, Fatima, on 13th July. I will meet the costs of the bike ride myself, to maximize the amount that will be donated to the causes.
Fatima reinforces my belief that we are all made to be in relationship with God, through Mary, mother of the Child Jesus, both of whom appeared to the seers. It is in this relationship where our value lies - so all life is sacred. The seers, who were specially chosen because they were very young children, saw themselves in God, as Lucia put it, " more clearly than we see ourselves in the best of mirrors".
