Weʼre raising £2,000 to help eradicate poverty

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.
I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise much needed money for the charity Oxfam, in order to help bring poverty to an end! The society we live in today is growing more and more unequal, almost half the world (over three billion people) live on less than £2 a day. The reason why I am doing this is because I believe that everyone deserves to be given equal opportunities in life. Everyone should have the chance of being successful and happy, and nobody should have to spend their whole lives starving and battling for survival. I hope to raise this money so that we can one day ensure that no-one in our society has to live in poverty!
I am very passionate about eradicating poverty, and I want to help make a positive difference in the world and to the lives of people who are affected by poverty. I have always believed that it is important to pick at least one global issue that you can help make a difference to in your lifetime, and that is why I am donating the money raised to Oxfam. Last year, Oxfam transformed the lives of 11.6 million people. They create real and lasting change on a global scale, and your contribution could help change even more lives for the better.
Just to let you know, climbing Kilimanjaro is very expensive. So the first £1,200 raised goes towards covering some of the costs of climbing Kilimanjaro (the rest I'm paying for myself). After the first £1,200 is raised every penny will be going to Oxfam.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my JustGiving page, and thank you so much for your support!

For old times sake. I know it won't fix what happened, but I'm hoping that it can be a start to setting things back to how they used to be.
