Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Tolu Akinboboye and I am taking part in a 5K run on the 28th of December in London to raise money for the charity, Victory Youth Group. I have also been carol singing and bagpacking in local supermarkets and on high streets.
About the Victory Youth Group (VYG)
This year, I am raising money for a charity I volunteer for, VYG, which does great work such as supporting victims of abuse, providing mentoring and advice to young people involved in gangs, depression and a range of other touch situations/backgrounds.
Here's a video showing the highlights of a march we did earlier on this year against the violence in London.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi4PCtfCPTM&ab_channel=VictoryYouthGroup
- The aim of the VYG is to take young people off the streets to do something positive so, whether music, dance or arts is your thing, it doesn’t really matter, you can get involved!
- We run competitions, activities and projects on a weekly basis! It’s all about acquiring the tools you need, to create the life you want.
- There are also other projects which young people can engage in, to strengthen their drive to succeed academically and get top grades.
Please help by donating as much as you can, regardless of how little! It all counts to changing a young person's life.
Life is Worth Living March
On July the 14th, MORE THAN 1,000 young people who are VYG members marched from the Finsbury Park area and north London gathered at the Rainbow Theatre on Seven Sisters Road on July 14, to march and speak out against knife and gun crime. http://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/1000-youths-march-against-knife-crime
