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 December 2016 I went on holiday to Gambia for 2 weeks. Although the country was struggling with poverty and many of the people were poor, I had a wonderful experience. When l returned to England I decided to explore doing some charity work to support some of the people and children in Gambia. Therefore I requested from friends and family various items such as clothes, shoes, trainers, toiletries, toys and educational items. The response from the few people that I approached was overwhelming. As a result of the positive donations 2 friends agreed to support me by sponsoring 24 barrels. To date we have sent 26 barrels to Gambia.
At present I have a 10 barrels ready for shipment with plans to ship 16, hence the reason for this request for funding. Reaching the target of £700 will provide enough funding to send all the barrels to Gambia.
