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.
10 years ago I lost my son at 3 months old to heart disease. At his funeral I took donations and sent them out to Kenya, Africa to buy water filters for 2 different villages. 2 years ago I planned to go to Kenya for the first time. Before I went I started fund raising, I wanted to raise as much money as I possibly could to buy as many water filters, avocado trees and to feed as many widows and orphans as I could. I was so blessed that people donated so much more money than I ever expected. With the £2,500 that was raised I managed to buy enough food to feed two widow complexes, a baby rescue centre, provide school books and equipment to a couple who adopt children, and two more water filters. We also planted a whole load of avocado trees. I'm now planning my return in November. So I have started fundraising again but this time my aim is to raise double.

About the fundraiser
Peterborough, United Kingdom
My son passed away 10 years ago. I was given donations at his funeral instead of flowers. I sent these out to Africa and bought water filters to provide clean water for different villages. I will continue to raise money to do as much as I can in Africa in my son's name.
