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.


This July I will be heading out for a little swim, The Bantham Swoosh, 6km down a river in Devon. Swimming is life. When I do this swim I will be donating money to the local pre-school in Aveton Gifford who support all of us water babies swimming the Swoosh. And if you'd like to, you can too. Funding is challenging for this rural pre-school, which is a vital and precious resource for the community.

I have never swum this far before. I have also overcomplicated my training by doing it at a travel-heavy time, so each week I'm trying to make sure I have a pool or body of water to get in. Here's where I've swum so far:

London Fields Lido; Covent Garden Oasis outdoor pool; YMCA Vanderbilt Manhattan; Asphalt Green Upper East Side Manhattan; YMCA McBurney Manhattan; Los Angeles Swim Stadium; YouTube San Bruno HQ; London Aquatics Centre; Coventry Baths; West Reservoir London.
