    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Anyone who knows me is aware that through my overseas expedition work I have been involved in a number of community projects to support and promote the education and wellbeing of children. I recently was introduced to the 'Our World Educational Trust' through the Karate Club where I train by the Sensei who is also a trustee of the charity. On the 10th December the Club will be running a 100 Kata event, it is my aim to complete this challenge raising funds for the charity in the process.
    The 'Our World Educational Trust' mission is to raise awareness of the educational  difficulties faced around the world, and the need for educational and life skills. To support existing and new educational projects via a range of sources across economic and geographic boundaries. To bring together partners and resources around advocacy and educational programs, and to promote access to services and institutions. They have already supported a number of projects both local and international.

      Update from the Page owner

      Hi everyone, Firstly a massive thank you. Whilst the Just Giving page closed a while ago bits and pieces still rolled in in other ways - I started off by being able to write a cheque for £827 - just after Christmas I passed on a couple of smaller amounts and this looks like it will continue for a while longer, hopefully I can get to the £1000 mark at some stage. Thanks once again to all who donated. Mark

      A couple of hours to go - well exceeded my target so very pleased - completed the 100 Kata - a serious physical challenge but so worth it considering how the money is going to help others. My thanks to everyone who supported me in this.

      Wow - target hit - so pleased! Successfully graded yesterday but tired this morning so seeing the amount raised is a brilliant boost - thank you to everyone who has donated. Starting to look forward to the 100 Kata Day so now seeing how much more can be raised to really smash the target.

      Thanks to everyone who has donated - the total is creeping up and every penny is going to be well spent. Just finished training tonight - Sensei was very pleased to hear how much had been donated.
