    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

    Most of you will know that I don't go anywhere without an inhaler and a snack. I have never wanted to run anywhere, much less just for the enjoyment of it, and I'd much rather just sit and wait for the next bus rather than break a sweat jogging for it. So imagine the surprise when I was asked to be part of an Olympic distance triathlon team and I said yes!

    As well as my wonderful teammates who are counting on me to AT LEAST cross the finish line, I wanted to make myself accountable to other humans who are less fortunate than myself to see if I could help in some small way.

    Kilimanjaro Young Girls In Need is a charity which is close to my heart. I had the immeasurable privilege of meeting some of the young people who have been helped by this amazing charity and they are full of an incredible joy and a want to learn. When we visited we were laying the foundations for their new school building; since then it has been completed and transformed the lives of many more young Tanzanians. They are constantly looking after more and more young people and are always in need of school supplies and food for the children. https://www.kygncharity.org/

    StrongMinds is a charity that treats Ugandan women with depression by creating talk therapy groups. This is a simple and effective way of combatting a big problem, and the money raised will be used in the most efficient way to reach as many women as possible. 66 million depressed women in Africa do not have access to proper treatment and StrongMinds hopes to educate young woman and give them the power to change that. https://strongminds.org/

    Since these charities are too small to be on JustGiving, I am raising money myself, which will be split in half and sent directly in a lump sum to each. If you can donate even a small amount it will make such a huge difference to these growing charities.

    I'm still not going anywhere without a snack or my inhaler. But at least now I've got the motivation to run for the bus.
