    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    Starting in March 2017, I plan to join the Special Olympics team to the World Winter Games in Austria. Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to more than 5.3 million athletes in nearly 170 countries. Whilst there is a lot of media attention around the Olympics and the Paralympics, the Special Olympics does not and that’s the reason I became involved as a volunteer and use my photography and media skills for a good cause.

    The athletes places are funded by the Special Olympics Charity but the place of a volunteer is not and it is down to the volunteer to raise the funds themselves.

    Emma McMenamin and John Kivlahan from the Special Olympics Ulster has provisionally secured my place but I have a very short time to raise the funds needed and I need your help, FAST!

    My target is £2700 and with your help I will be able to reach this goal.
    There is a Justgiving page for donations and for messages of support and to share the fundraiser. Here is the web address https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/james-hislop
    For cash, cheques or bank transfers please send me your details and I will be in touch.

    I appreciate you taking the time to read this but I will appreciate it even more if you can spend another 3 minutes and a few pounds to this cause.

    Shortly after the event I will be producing a movie with picture highlights and I will include sponsors names in the credits.

    For more information you can contact me on 07885 747191 or j-hislop@hotmail.com

    Thank you for your support.
