Weʼre raising £3,000 to give children in Lagos Nigeria food and school supplies. And paying the school fees of one or two high performing children in need.
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’m excited to say a group of us are going to Lagos in October and it’s definitely going to be one to remember.
Lagos is a place like no other- Amazing food, unlimited wealth in certain areas the best clubs and sun sun sun!
However as all of you know there’s also a lot of suffering that goes on there and not because people are lazy or complacent but because our Government doesn’t really care.
Right now there are millions of kids in Nigeria selling on road sides eating one meal in 3 days. (Garri) in the hope that one day they will make it to an amazing place they believe holds all their success - school.
I say all this to say; As we all go to Nigeria in October I would love us to have a day of charity squashed into our fun trip.
I would ask for donations from all of you from now till September 4th. I know people say every little helps but you know me so forget the little and dig deep. Ask your friends and friends of your friends to donate as well.
What we will be doing:
We will be handing out meals and school supplies to people in need (a lot of the poorer kids go to school barefoot)
Depending on how much we raise we could also pay school fees for a high performing child or two in need (to put it in perspective it shouldn’t be more than £300)
What we will need:
The food van (number depends on donations)
Full meals and drinks (some of the kids haven’t had meat in months)
School supplies (reason goes without saying)
I believe this will be an unquantifiable kindness and I truly believe these things make a difference. Thank you all so so much.
Please Donate and Pass it on!!!

This is a fantastic thing, Africa is a place with so much potential but people are living in destitute conditions. I hope this donation can change atleast one persons life
