Weʼre raising £1,000 to help vulnerable children and adults in South Africa
- Stafford, United Kingdom
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.
In February 2019 my daughter, Georgia will be travelling to South Africa with her school and a charity called Linkforlife. Georgia and a handful of fellow students will be helping the charity with their work in some of the most deprived communities and orphanages.
As soon as Georgia heard about the project she was so passionate to go out there to help, she has some exposure with my own charity however, this is on a totally different scale where she will learn so much about other cultures and herself! Georgia really wants to embrace this experience to the full, she is already talking about ideas to help families and children over there. This is a life changer and I am so proud of her for wanting to take on this challenge and I support her 100%, I do hope that you will join me in supporting her too.
A little bit about the LinkforLife project...
The Link for Life Project is a church and community organisation, established in 2010, by local churches in Great Wyrley and Cheslyn Hay. The organisation now works throughout Lichfield diocese to bring together schools, churches and the wider community to support the work of three Christian, non-profit organisations in Southern Africa – Hands at Work in Africa, The Baby Bear Project and Mercy Air.
The Project aims to encourage people in our local neighbourhood to care for, and learn from, our global neighbours. The Link for Life Project seeks to help young people in our local communities to broaden their horizons, and challenges them to help and support those in need in Southern Africa. At the Project we believe in building relationships, encouraging our teams to learn the names and stories of those they meet in order to speak up for those without a voice, and advocate on their return.
The Link for Life Project aims to raise awareness of developmental and social issues in Southern Africa, as well as raise funds for our partner charities and those which they serve. We truly believe in being a Link for Life.
Georgia's school have worked with LinkforLife for a few years now, however, Georgia needs to raise £2000 to cover the costs of the trip. Georgia's school will arrange some fundraising events throughout the year which will go towards this but Georgia is also responsible for organising her own events and raising the money to help fund her trip.
This will be a life changing and an incredible opportunity for Georgia, as well as helping to make a huge difference to the community in South Africa. If you can help in any way to make a donation to help her in her efforts, we will be hugely grateful. Thank you
