What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


My name is Octavia and I am a 16 year old who is passionate about helping others. I would like to read medicine at university and therefore I need to complete medical work experience. As I enjoy volunteering and charity work, I am fundraising to complete medical work experience in one of the location offered by the company Gap Medics such as Tanzania or Trinidad in July 2017. My work experience will include shadowing doctors, learning about area specific diseases and volunteering with the local community. To raise money towards my goal of £1500, my father and I are running a 10km sponsored charity run on November 16th (Run in the Dark at Battersea Park, which supports the Mark Pollock foundation). The money raised will go towards the cost of completing the work experience with Gap Medics and the flights to Tanzania or Trinidad. Any contribution is greatly appreciated by not only me, but the local community of wherever I end up! Any excess money over my goal of £1500 will go towards the Mark Pollock foundation that organise the charity run which my father and I are competing in.

Many thanks,
Tavi Colehan.

    On Wednesday this week, my father and I ran the dreaded 10k! We crossed the finish line side by side with our time 56:26. We were both really proud of this time and it was a definite improvement from our times of our previous 10km runs during training. I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has donated to this page and that fundraising on this page will up for several more months. Many thanks, Octavia
