Weʼre raising £400 to help fund my goal to start a local community based youtube channel.
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.
I've always dreamed about documenting the fascinating people and events in my community, but with only an iPhone from 2010, my enthusiasm for making inspiring footage has always been slightly derailed by the inability to film the environment in good resolution.
I've had a true passion for film making for as long as I can remember and despite only having limited tools to do so, I've already created a variety of different movies and wildlife footage which I've used for school projects showing to my friends.
I thought this website would be the perfect opportunity to bring my goals into fruition and create a youtube channel which not only my friends but also anyone else in the community can visit to see what's going on around them. The bulk all the donations will go towards purchasing filming equipment such as a drone which can film aspects of my community from an interesting and totally new perspective. I hope for this exciting footage to draw attention the events and activities which I'd love to schedule for young people using a successful youtube channel.
The rest of donations will go towards putting up poster boards and other ways of spreading news about the channel which I will pay to be put up in both local shops and newspapers.
Finally, ANY and ALL donations will be greatly appreciated and will go towards something that will make one of my biggest ambitions come true.
My youtube channel which I haven't yet started to put together (but will very soon as soon as my exams are over) can be found by searching in 'Oscar Wainwright' on youtube.
Thank you for reading my story.
