Weʼre raising £2,000 to fund an international volunteering trip to Thailand
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.
In summer 2017 I was selected to go on a volunteering trip with GirlGuiding Northeast to Thailand, 10 girls and 3 leaders will be travelling to the country in August 2018 and we will be interacting with Thai guides in schools and helping to teach them some life skills including first aid and hygiene.
We will be staying for just over 2 weeks and will have many incredible opportunities whilst we are there, the chance to connect with young Thai girls our age, to learn new skills from them, and to teach them ours. We will also have the chance to observe their way of life. I am thrilled to have been offered this incredible opportunity and am so excited to experience another culture so different from ours.
However in order to go I have to raise a significant amount of money, I have already raised £500 pounds at events but any kind donations towards my total would be greatly appreciated.
In 2015 a similar trip was conducted to Thailand and the girls wrote a small blog detailing their experiences, find that here:
