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.


I first came across KickStart Art program in 2012 and was immediately impressed by it's ethos and goals. It's a grassroots program that provides art teaching and art therapy for around 1200 Burmese migrant kids living on the Thai/Myanmar border. My Dad was an artist and art teacher so I think it could be why I find this program so inspiring. For more information about this wonderful program go to

.I am going to cycle over 2000 kilometres around Myanmar in November 2018, aiming to raise as much money and awareness for the KickStart Art Program. I will be starting and finishing in the Thai border town of Mae Sot where KickStart Art is based.
