    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

    Beginning on the 15th of April 2017 I will be traveling to Mumbai India with the charity 'Born to Be Beautiful'.

    I have already raised £930 of a £1500 target thanks to amazing genorosity. I hope to be able to raise the remaing £600

    Born to be beautiful was set up by Sarah Glover, a Beauty Therapist who visited India 7 years ago. Their main goal is to restore dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation, sickness or war through providing beauty therapy training and skills. This training enables these women to gain employment and set up their own businesses with the help of Born to be beautiful.

    There are over 200 million illiterate women in India who struggle to earn a living and provide for their children. These women often have high fertility rates, poor earning potential, little autonomy in the household and bad quality of life. Education is the key to reducing these figures. Giving vulnerable women the tools and qualifications to become independent and self sufficient is so important.

    My work has given me so much pleasure over the years, training in beauty therapy, working with women, and building my own business to give me financial independence. I know that it would mean so much more to these ladies, as it would help to restore their dignity and self esteem and enable them to earn a living, get them off the streets and out of their difficult and hopeless situations. I want to use my knowledge and skills to help those who need it more than I do and to give back to a country that is close to my heart.

    I would love to teach these ladies and see their lives changed for the positive but I need your help! Please help me to help them by donating as much as you can.

    If you can't donate online or would like to give in a different way I am also hosting Pamper parties for up to 6 women, get in touch if you would like to hold one in your home.

    Thank-you so much,

    Lorraine

      So I'm here in Mumbai and have been teaching our women to do manicures. They are very excited and eager to learn. The classroom we use in in a high rise building which is normally used by Gateway Church, they have kindly let us use it. We do have air conditioning which is great for us as it's 30% here but the girls find it too cold so we don't have it too cold! Sarah is a fantastic teacher and I've learnt so much from her, especially today as I took a the lesson & taught them to do massage. None had had a massage before, they enjoyed it. ❤️

      Hello, So I'm nearly ready to go to Mumbai, I'm so excited and starting to pack today. I have to leave room for 6 kits in my suitcase. These kits contain a uniform, nail polishes, base coat & top coat and all the tools needed to perform manicures & Pedicures. Each lady will receive one. I've nearly reached my target just a push now due the final bit. Thank you for your generosity and please share this page with anyone you feel may like to get involved. Love Lorraine 💕
