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 trying to raise an overall amount of £3250 for a World Challenge Trip to Nicaragua. I have already raised over £1500 by cleaning cars, selling cakes, gardening, babysitting and using my earnings from my weekly paper round.
When I arrive in Nicaragua I'll be working with schools within the local community to benefit their pupils education and school life. The rest of the team and I will achieve this by working to build new facilities for the school and aiming to fix certain issues they have.We will benefit the pupils education by teaching them things we may potentially be more skilled in,for example English.
Nicaragua is a poor and struggling country in many ways so our work should be very beneficial to them.In addition this work will give me a good insight into the severe problems faced by poorer people of the world and will apply me with powerful and useful life lessons.
My next fund raising effort is the 5 mile 'tough mudder' event. Any sponsorships will be greatly appreciated and put straight towards my cause.
The tough mudder event has been dubbed the toughest event on the planet and will be a gruelling challenge.It will test my teamwork skills,strength,motivation and much more.It will also be great practice for the exhausting hikes we undertake in Nicaragua and is hopefully a great reason for you to sponsor me.
