What is crowdfunding?

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.


As a family of five, we are travelling to Moldova this summer to spend a week volunteering at a children's camp. We'll be helping to lead children's activities in the morning, then working with teenagers in the afternoon. All five of us will be assisting in whatever ways we can. (Neil, Leona, Daniel 15, Matthew 12 and Sophie 8).

We have arranged this trip independently as we found it difficult to find family volunteering opportunities in Europe. We'll be staying with a Moldovan family who work for CEF (more info in the link below). We have to pay for this trip in its entirety and so we've decided to organize some fundraising activities in May and June to help us with the costs. We will put any money raised towards our flights to Chisenau, travel expenses etc in Moldova and a donation to the family for accommodating us. We would also like to leave a gift for the CEF Moldova team. We have set up a bank account specifically for Moldova fundraising to administer donations and payments.

If you can support us in any way, by coming to a fundraising event or by making a donation via JustGiving, we’d be very grateful.

Thank you!

Neil, Leona, Daniel, Matthew & Sophie

About Moldova:

Moldova is in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania and the Ukraine. Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe with high unemployment. As a result, many children are growing up alone as their parents have migrated abroad to find work. Some children are raised by elderly grandparents, some live in child-headed households and others are sent to institutions. Child trafficking, alcohol abuse and official corruption are also prevalent.
