    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 am going to drink ONLY WATER for ALL OF NOVEMBER to raise money for Way To The Nations!

    I usually only drink 2 things: black coffee all day and red wine all evening. No water. Those that know me will know that this is not an exaggeration but the ridiculous truth. It's been this way for years and I've always run a mile at the suggestion of dry January etc as I couldn't face the thought of it.

    Well, those that know me really well will also know a little bit about Way To The Nations and how much I care about the work they do in Nigeria, rescuing and providing a home to children who have suffered abuse and abandonment due to being labelled as 'witches'. Children's lives are transformed as they experience safety and belonging at the centre, and rediscover a hope for the future.

    The finances are always tight just to meet the monthly needs of the orphanage, as well as working towards larger goals to slowly but surely bring about lasting change in the community. I know that every extra donation makes a big difference so decided I would challenge myself to raise a few more pounds. So here I am, not just doing a 'dry' month but a water-only month! It's really genuinely going to be hard!

    Thanks for any support you can give!

    PS. Sorry in advance to people that I live and work with - I might be a bit grumpy.
