Weʼre raising £200 to send me to Mozambique and Swaziland where I will help build schools/hospitals and conserve whale sharks/sea turtles 🦈 🐢 💖
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.
For the whole duration of July 2019, I will travel across Mozambique and Swaziland taking part in various projects with my World Challenge expedition - such as building essential community structures such as hospitals or schools and tracking endangered whale sharks/sea turtles in conservation efforts.
Whale sharks are actually the biggest fish in the world and one of the only filter-feeder sharks (they don't eat people!). However, hundreds continue to be fished every year in countries including southern China and Oman – often for shark fin soup, where the fin is used and the remainder of the fish goes uneaten. This has caused them to be threatened by extinction and I think this is an important cause to address seeing as it is the fault of humans!
I need to raise £4350 for my expedition, not including all of my kit, before July 2019. I am over half way there at £2500 right now and would really appreciate any additional help in reaching my goal! I've set the initial goal at £200 but I would be made up to receive even £1 in a donation. <3
