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 July 2019 I have the fantastic opportunity to travel to Madagascar though World Challenge with my school. I am 14 years old. To secure my place on this adventure i had to do a formal application and covering letter explaining why i should be picked. The event was over subscribed and i was luckily enough to be successful.
In order to take part in the trip i have to personally raise £4500. These funds will be used for my expedition, for my travel and funds to be used to benefit the village which we will be visiting, leaving them a gift of a children's playground or classroom.
The adventure includes us flying into Madagascar then trekking for 7 days carrying all our equipment, my group has to manage the trek and navigate to the village, using our own funds. Once in the village we have to plan and follow through to give the village a useful gift, such as a classroom and equipment or playground for the children. Once we are in the village we have to camp and fend for ourselves.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and any donations will be gratefully received, I am very excited to have this once in a lifetime opportunity and carryout this challenge.
