    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.

    Story

    I am raising funds to enable me to travel to Sri Lanka in July 2019 for 2 weeks and volunteer as part of the Marine and Wildlife Conservation programme, which combines several projects aiming to rehabilitate and conserve the environment.

    Travelteer Impact is the charity I am raising funds for which empowers under developed communities and their environments in Sri Lanka who will directly benefit from all monies raised. All the funds are raised by volunteers like myself who participate in the volunteering programmes. By donating to my volunteer page you will be directly contributing to our efforts and helping us achieve our aims!

    With your support I am confident that I can make a real difference in supporting these projects and as a group help support the local community.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for any support you can give in helping me reach my goal.

      Well, it's the final few hours of the challenge and I must admit that I'm craving fruit, or anything that isn't beige to be fair!! Having pasta twice a day, got to me around Thursday and by Friday I could no longer stomach it, so have been eating more beans and porridge from my allowance. I'm very glad I've done this challenge as it's made me appreciate the variety of foods that I am able to afford, consume and generally waste on a weekly basis. In future I'll be more aware of the money I spend unnecessarily. Thank you all for your support.

      Well, I have just made up a few pots of pasta with passata and chopped tomatoes, enough to last until Wednesday evening, when I will be having beans for my tea. Porridge is soaking and I'm ready to go!!! Might be living on baked beans and plain pasta by Saturday!!!

      I have done my shopping in preparation for the £1 per day challenge. I was shocked and horrified at the types of food that I could not afford to buy. No fruit and vegetables as they would have taken up too much of the budget. Looks like it's pasta and oats for 7 days! Going to try and make it as colourful as possible with the sweetcorn and the tomatoes. Thank you for your support so far. Will keep people updated to the challenges that will be encountered mentally and physically throughout the week.
