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.
Mission 500 is all about raising awareness, with Italians, French and British, of bird poaching and hunting methods in Europe. Using a classic fiat 500 as a mascot to draw attention along the way. We are an all female team, from all corners of the UK.
We will be visiting poaching hot spots in Northern Italy doing both covert and overt work, working with CABS and also Italian organisations. The Species that are targeted, the numbers killed and the methods used are unfathomable.
In Northern France we will be visiting two areas, one of which is where champagne is produced. Both areas use barbaric trapping methods which are actually legal in France. Here we will be collecting valuable evidence to pass on to CABS for them to use for pressuring policy makers.
Lastly, on English soil we will make one final pit stop. Destination to be determined by the H.I.T. squad.
We will be using Facebook Live, sharing the daily experiences and emotions with our followers. Each of the team is working at getting local press coverage, and we have a few Italian publications interested in covering our story.
We will continue to raise awareness as we stop off along our route, covering the 500 in bunting, leafleting and engaging with folk.
All donations raised before the trip and during will go to CABS.

OK. We've already raised £675 on JustGiving but unfortunately you can only crowdfund for a fixed period of time, and we expired! Personally I think it's a neat way for JustGiving to take admin fees twice!

This slaughter of migrant birds just has to be stopped. Tradition is no excuse now we know the consequences.
