    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    On the 4th December my Mum and I will be taking part in a 10k to raise money for the children at Potter's Village in Ghana. Any one who knows me well knows that running and I aren't the best of buddies and so this will be a genuine challenge for me, but one that I am excited to do if it means smiles on the faces of 120 children on Christmas Day. After having spent a total of 4 months in Ghana previously, I can say I have fallen in love with the country- the beautiful landscape, the beautiful culture and most of all the beautiful people. I am travelling to Ghana yet again for 3 months and shall be there on Christmas Day. My hope is to raise enough funds to be able to make Christmas as special as I can. Money really does go a long way in Ghana and anything, no matter how 'small', is appreciated. Thank you!!!
