    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.


    Hi everyone, those that know me know that I am petrified of heights, so I have decided to book a skydive for Monday 28th August to raise as much money as I can for the Montego Bay Autism Centre in Jamaica.
    On my last visit to Jamaica, my friend took me to this school where she volunteered for a couple of months in 2016, and it really saddened me to learn that out there, there is no support from the Government for these children. The centre is run by a lovely couple from New York who have lived out in Jamaica for the last 8 years. They were telling me in great detail how they have individually helped each child, & how they couldn't have done it without the help of their volunteers and fundraising events. This is then when I thought, what can I do to help, & what would hopefully raise the most amount of money to help fund them, so I figured that if I do something extremely terrifying, hopefully people will want to pay more for this?!
    Below I have written out the project list which I received from the centre (and I am sure you will agree that some of the items are (especially to us) very small)
    Removal of stones
    Rubber mulch for playground area
    Construct brick wall
    Fence play area
    Construct a sensory gym, including therapeutic equipment
    Leisure bench around tree
    Stepping stones from playground to lunch area, & office to lunch area
    Large trampoline
    Basketball hoop
    Shingles for roof
    Musical instruments
    Re-paint desks, chairs, & cubbies
    Computers for each classroom
    Hot stove
    Deep fryer
    Pot set
    Iron & ironing board
    Large cutting board
    Top soil
    Watering can
    Large laminating machine
    Various office supplies
    Large printer
    PA system

    My goal is to raise funds more for the larger items, and possibly collect any unwanted or gifted items for the smaller ones.

    I thank anyone who has taken the time to read this, and please, if you have gotten this far, any donation large or small will be greatly received.

    P.s I must be out of my mind!!
