Weʼre raising £2,420 to Kamila's Everest Base Camp trek for SheRose

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

On 6th September 2021 I will be flying off to Nepal for 15 days to take part in a trek through the majestic Himalayan peaks, all the way to Everest Base Camp (5,364 metres above sea level). Cannot even put my excitement into words!

In order to take part in the trek I must raise £2420 which will go towards my charity of choice. Many of you already know that I have been involved with fundraising for charities for a few years, however this my biggest challenge yet (trek and the fundraising goal) especially during a global pandemic. All support will be greatly appreciated, whether that’s simply sharing this page with others or donating money, I will be eternally grateful.

The charity I have chosen is SheRose.

SheRose is a non-profit organisation, that aims to support young girls from underprivileged backgrounds through education and helping to improve all areas of their lives; as a way of tackling the issue of child marriages and social injustice against women. As well as educating, empowering, and supporting women, they also want to provide a platform where women's achievements can be celebrated and social limitation against women can be challenged.

Their primary aim is to eradicate child marriages. 1 in 2 girls in Malawi are forced into child marriages before their 18th birthday, to men much older than them. They are forced to leave school and take care of their families. This perpetuates education barriers and sexual inequality. Above all else it continues the cycle of poverty.

Their vision is to see communities where girls and women are not subjected to child marriages or gender-based discrimination; but are valued, empowered and afforded equal rights in all areas of their lives.

I hold SheRose very close to my heart and I feel they need all the financial help they can get especially as research indicates that the pandemic will dramatically increase the rate of child marriage, making this a crucial time for us to provide interventions to minimise the detrimental impacts. It is anticipated that an additional 4 million girls will be vulnerable to enforced child marriage within the next two years, with the U.N forecasting this figure to reach an extra 13 million by the end of the decade as a result of COVID19.

In total, SheRose will receive AT LEAST £1,210 from this fundraiser. How will this money be used? Here are some options to put it into perspective:

- 40 girls to attend day secondary school for an entire year .

- 8 girls to attend boarding secondary school for an entire year (including accommodation) .

- If this money is to be spent on workshops, we would be able to run 5 workshops, with 150 girls attending each workshop (the impact of which would be 750 girls).

Any donations, no matter how small, will make a huge difference!

    It's tattoo day tomorrow!!! If you've seen my social media in the last few months you'll know that I am doing a charity tattoo. You can still submit your design before midnight tonight... 1. Design a palm sized tattoo (it will be tattooed in black ink only, nothing rude but it can be stupid if you want) 2. Donate £15 to my page and send me your design. 3. On 24th April at 10am I will draw out a random tattoo and get it done at 1pm that same day!! MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone that's taken part so far!

    My Dot to Sand etsy/instagram is still open for commission and I am excited for the upcoming Mother's day! Recently, I have also sent a bunch of my candleholders and coasters to be sold at Pen Gallery, so I'm low on stock, but can happily take custom orders. Since Christmas sales have been slow and I've had to take some time off to focus on my full time job. I'm now ready to get back into it and start making new products. (Here's a photo from my Valentine's collection launch).

    I am now on week 6 of training for my half marathon, and I have recently found out that it has been postponed from 25th April to 22nd August. Although I am not looking forward to running in the summer heat (will give me a nice tan) this gives me more time to train and more time for people to be able to support and donate! Wooo!
