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.

Hi! My names Luke and I have been lucky enough to be one of the few Scouts selected to represent the county and the UK at the World Scout Jamboree 2019!
The opportunity is fantastic but with it comes a £3700 cost for the trip itself which I am hoping to fund through several activities before our departure date and this doesn't include training events and related activities along the way.
My cost will also contribute towards Scouts from other less fortunate countries allowing them to attend so this isn't just solely for me and already brings out the true spirit of Scouting from day one by helping others reach the event to take part as well.
I have a Facebook page so that people can see what I am up to on a regular basis which I am keeping up to date as things change and is https://www.facebook.com/LukeJackson.WSJ2019 and I would be extremely grateful if you could visit and like my page so others can see it as well as I make garden items to sell as well as my other activities.
My unit is Unit 33 , North Yorkshire & Durham, 24th World Scout Jamboree 2019. USA. which has about 40 members including the 4 leaders. We have already had our first meeting together and are due to meet again in January to get to know each other better.
So far I have attended two bag packing days as a joint unit event and hope to do more of these in the coming months,
We have a Unit 33 account on https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk Just create an account login and search for Unit 33 , North Yorkshire & Durham, 24th World Scout Jamboree 2019. USA.to be your nominated sponsor and do your shopping either on the PC or by the App on your mobile and the shops will donate a percentage of what you spend to help fund our trip and it doesn't cost you a penny, totally FREE! All the major supermarkets, Amazon, Ebay, Argos, PCWorld etc etc etc are on there even holiday companies so PLEASE give it a go!
In January I am starting a raffle which I have had help from friends collecting prizes and have made a bird table to add to the collection not to mention a stunt car passenger ride with Paul Swift in March at the Darlington Mowden Rugby Stadium! Don't know who he is? Well you will have certainly seen him around! http://www.paulswift.com/tv-and-film.asp so please keep an eye open for when this starts as hopefully there is something for everyone.
On 17th February we have a joint social night at Glaxo Social Club to be announced shortly!
And finally our Unit Leaders have arranged for us to do a sponsored abseil on February 24th from Middlesbrough transporter bridge! oh the joy!?
It may just have appeared to be a 3 week event in 2019 but it has soon turned into a full time challenge and appreciate any help and support you are able to give!
