What is crowdfunding?

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


My mission is to raise funds for essential medical equipment, building materials, cooking utensils, food and and clothes for the people of Kunchowk, Nepal. This is one of the most affected areas post the massive earthquakes. Your donation will be used in its entirety (apart from a small service charge by Just Giving) to help children and what is left of the families, to rebuild their lives.

I have donated to many charities in my life, but never like this with the ability to go and see the difference it makes personally. I want to see the situation for myself and to give some hope to the people I have been in contact with through a friend and professional photographer.

My family and many friends think I am mad - but I simply want to use this time and opportunity to help, whilst of course getting to see the country as is, and what it can be again. Wish me luck, and I really do value your support.

Just so you know, I won't be coming back as a Buddhist Monk ;-), my intentions are purely humanitarian and of course, I will be taking lots of photographs from this journey.

    My support page is now up and running for the Nepal mission and thanks very much to those that have supported me thus far. I have also posted some pictures of the disaster area here, where I will be going with the aid. https://www.flickr.com/photos/148068188@N08/sets/72157673593561522/

I have worked for 35 years+ (non-stop) in an industry I enjoy immensely. However, I now have a bit of time to reflect, whilst deciding 'what next'. I want to see what I can do for others in need of urgent support. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity I have often considered.
