Weʼve raised £500 to build a new home for 50 orphans in Bali
- Canggu, Bali
- Funded on Monday, 28th January 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are fundraising to build a new home for 50 orphaned children in Bali, with the help and support of YOGI TIMES.
Hope Children's Home provides love, education and care for abandoned children. Many have been left unwanted by parents, or by families who cannot afford to take care of them. Sadly, foreign land owners are taking back their property, and the orphanage has been asked to relocate by December 2018.
Tris, the 67 year old Balinese daughter of the original founder, is rallying the community together to build a new home for the children, just across from their school.
As she warmly embraces us in her big grandmother arms, we are reminded that she has single-handedly taken care of these children for all these years, with no government support. She relies on the goodwill of the community and tourists to donate what they can to keep the orphanage going. To the kids, she is also known as 'mom'.
Every child deserves to have a good place to call home...
Your donations - even just $1 - will go a long way in Bali. We can buy enough bricks and cement for one small room with just $60. The community is helping us build it...we are all pulling together to give these children a roof over their head in time for Christmas. People are donating food, labor and time. Now, we need some help getting the supplies and materials to build a solid home.
So, we invite you to join us in a GIVE IT UP TO GIVE IT OUT CHALLENGE!!!
For the month of October, I challenge you to GIVE UP one thing and donate that money towards building these children a home.
You can choose to give up something for just one day...one week...or even the whole month!
We chose this challenge to remind us how so many go without the privileges we take for granted on a daily basis...knowing we often have more than most, can you spare a little bit?
* Walk to work and donate your petrol costs
* Pack yourself a healthy lunch instead of buying it on the move
* Skip the greasy takeaway this week
* Skip dessert after your restaurant meal
* Choose some lower priced items at the supermarket
* Give up a bad habit, and donate anyway!
Kimberley: "I'm giving up wine for the ENTIRE MONTH! For those of you who know me, well... that is going to be challenge!
Sophie: "I'm eating raw for 2 weeks. Let's go healthy, and save on those expensive restaurant meals."
Jesse: "I'm giving up sugar this month, no desserts or naughty treats for me!"
GIVE IT UP TO GIVE IT OUT...and perhaps do something positive in your life too!
Funds will go towards:
* Building materials and food supplies for the children.
When we reach our target, a video will be posted of Tris and the children receiving your donation so you know 100% is going directly to the orphanage.
