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.
I am looking to personally raise £500 for Mankwe Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. This money will be used to help protect the white rhino within the reserve from poaching for their horns. The number of rhino across the world is decreasing at a rapid pace and it is imperative that private reserves like Mankwe are aided with funding to ensure adequate security and protection can continue. I'm lucky enough to be visiting the Reserve at the end of August and be part of their 2 week volunteering programme. It will be great to see the place in person and meet all the people that dedicate their lives protection of these amazing creatures.
Myself and a team of people from ZooLab will be climbing Mount Snowdon in North Wales on 15th September 2018 to collectively achieve a combined team target of £10,000.
I'm also looking to organising a an event or 2 and a few different things to raise as many funds as possible, going to be selling some cupcakes too thanks to the help of Kakes by Janice.
Watch this space for updates!
Will be posting lots of pics once I get to visit this amazing place and hopefully get to meet some of these beautiful animals.
Every penny counts and this money will go towards a number of things including: food and enrichment for the anti-poaching dogs, petrol for on site patrol vehicles, increased anti-poaching team, improved reserve infrastructure and additional security equipment.
Thank you for visiting my page, and I look forward to posting updates of our progress as we work to achieve this challenging goal!
Below is also a little bit of info about the reserve, pics, interviews and articles. I didn't know much my self initially but found these really open your eyes and the interview is especially moving.
