£125raised of £500 target by 9 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to help fund vital school equipment for less fortunate children in Nigeria through my backpack project :)

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.


Hey guys my beautiful friend Katie is in partnership with ICS a international charity that allows individuals like herself to volunteer for the less fortunate in various countries. As her journey this summer will take her to my mother's home land in Nigeria, where she will be volunteering with children there, I have used this as an opportunity to give back too through this project. The children backpack project! I will be designing little children backpacks that she will take to them on her journey there. I want to therefore add vital school equipment in these backpacks and will be much appreciative if you guys could help fund the project! Its something little but I believe it will go along way. I hope to fill at least 25 backpacks with equipment for these wonderful children. Any donation big or small is appreciated! This project will be in hopes to be a continued yearly ritual where each year I will design something new!! Thank you for the support! :)
