Weʼre raising £3,500 to help send my son Ryan to the Scout World Jamboree in Virginia USA in the Summer of 2019
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.
Some months ago our 13 year old son Ryan was selected with a group of other scouts to represent Northern Ireland at the World Scout Jamboree. This is a 4 week long adventure in a Scout park the size of Belfast, based in Virginia USA. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and we dearly want to give our son an chance to experience this wonderful event. The Scout organisation cannot afford to cover the cost, and per child the sum due is £3,500. It is all down to the family and any fundraising Ryan can do himself. We have sacrificed our own annual holiday this year to help contribute towards the costs of this trip. Any help that you can offer would be much appreciated!
Paul and Diane.

That sounds like an amazing adventure (please tell me they aren't getting Don the Con to address them again!)
