    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I'm adopting a Street Dog named Scout and rather than get her couriered over to the UK, I thought it might be fun/terrifying/exhausting/foolish to cycle back with her instead. So that's what I'm doing. To raise money for Street Hearts BG - who found Scout and took her in and saved her from a life on the streets.

    I'll be blogging about it here: www.k8andk9.com

    You see, Bulgaria has a problem with street dogs, and Emma and Anthony at Street Hearts BG are trying to help.

    About a year ago they set up a neutering campaign for their local area and in the process have somehow opened their doors to over 60 dogs at a time. Last March they also took me in to their home for a few weeks (like the wandering stray that I sometimes am) and I was so astonished by their tireless efforts to save the dogs in their area that I thought up a name, became their patron, set up a fundraising page and pushed them on their way to becoming a proper charity (still in the works - two countries worth of red tape to get through.)

    You can see more of what they get up to day to day here: www.facebook.com/streetheartsbg

      Hello everyone and thank you so so much for supporting us on our journey home and to help Scout's friends back in Bulgaria. To those of you who responded to the Times article, thank you! This page will be open for just ten more days and any extra raised will off set those pesky handling fees and ensure Street Hearts will be able to keep operating through the year. Scout and I are done with travels fo now but this fundraiser isn't quite over. Please do share this or the video or the article with others for the final push. Hugs and licks!

      120%? 120%!! Oh my gosh you guys. I am just absolutely blown away by your magical generosity. You've kept me going through all the difficulties and I had the most wonderful homecoming surrounded by family and friends and supporters. You're so wonderful. I wish I could thank you all individually. There will be a final blog post up in the next few days! X

      It's been a tough few days. 507km in 6 days and no rest and also not really much closer to London. My estimated route was clearly optimistic and poorly projected and I'm genuinely having to cycle all day to make up the distance, even eating my pretzels and ice-cream while cycling. So I've made a decision and I'm going to take my time and enjoy the last few hundred kilometres at our own pace - Scout trotting when she needs to and me stopping for cake when I need to. It'll be over so soon and I want to stop and take pictures, not while riding!

      We can't have a dog, but we have a rescue bearded dragon. My parents have rescue dogs, and my wife had rescue dogs. Rescue animals every time. Great cause. Da iawn.

      It's only been a trickle lately. I just wanted it to at least hit £12.5k. 😊I think I'll hit up my dad's pocket for this one. He loves all dogs! 😝Thanks again for all you've done 🐕🐾🐾🚴👍👊👏
