    What is crowdfunding?

    I've had to make a new page in order to continue this, however, we still have time to reach the aim. Thank you to everyone who has already doanted.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------During the last week of my trip to Ethiopia we went to visit my aunt. Prior to my visit I was told that she has her own charity which she runs from home. My grandmother knew that I would be interested in this so we went to her house. We were greeted by numerous little children coming to welcome us to their house, each stopping what they were doing to come and shake our hand. It was an orphanage.

    I decided immediately that I would do everything I can to make sure that I would help in some way to get involved in this cause. I had no idea before this that my aunt ran an orphanage, and being so closely related to the cause I knew it was my moral responsibility to help.

    I asked one of the girls what the biggest problem in the orphanage was. She told me it was stationery. I can guarantee that the majority of you reading this would not expect this to be the largest adversity they faced. She said everything else was manageable but supply is limited and in Ethiopia the prices of just a pad of paper is expensive.

    In most companies, schools and organsiations there are ample amounts of stationery lying aroun which no one uses and the likelihood of achieving this goal in supplying stationery for the 52 orphans is high. I know that we can do this, it is truly a worthwhile cause which I know can achieve our goal!!

      This year, for Christmas, I've decided that I would prefer to have donations towards this cause, as opposed to presents. I care so greatly about the charity and truly believe that this goal is fully attainable this Christmas. Although you may not all do the same, I encourage you to donate a small amount within your family towards this amazing cause in order to extend the giving-nature of the seasonal holiday to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
