    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    In July 2017, I'm undertaking a youth and sports development volunteer project to assist children in rural Fiji, which supports a small and local Leeds charity - Think Pacific Foundation (1162190).

    TP are a great charity who work in remote Fijian villages, where over one third of children grow up in poverty.

    During the month I spend there, I will experience and live under tough conditions. I'll be immersing myself in the local culture - living on the floor in a family's Fijian hut, showering with a bucket and working 7am-7pm hour days.

    The volunteering work out there will include; one-on-one and class tuition, extra curricular activities such as sports and arts, and helping the community through infrastructure development projects.

    I think that one of many reason that has inspired me towards this particular project, is how lucky I have been to receive an education, and how many opportunities I have had which are cruelly unavailable in areas with a poverty line that many of us will never even see in our lives. The kids out there have very little chance to write their own paths in life, and I think it will be extremely rewarding if I can be a part of changing this.

    Your money will go towards and help fund the materials and projects in Fiji that I will be a part of, and will make a huge difference out there. I am extremely grateful for any size donations. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      Hi everyone! In keeping you all updated, I thought I'd let you know what I will be getting up to in these next few months. In April I'll be doing the Student Colour Run in Leeds, in hope that people will sponsor me and donate, so that it can go towards Fiji. As you all probably know, I am anything but a runner so this is quite a challenge for me (but obviously why would I not do something challenging to gain sponsors). I also hopefully have plans to host an evening to raise money in my Easter break and will update on this! Bye!
