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.


Hello, world!

Salama from the beautiful island of Madagascar where I live and work as an English teacher.

My students are smart and curious, they want to know about the world, and most of all: learn English. We have one little issue - in our middle and high school, we have 0 books. So as much as I like to "play Wikipedia", I can only tell them so much.

This is where you come in - chip in as little or as much as you like to help me get books to them. Books2Africa will ship them, I just have to cover the processing costs. I'm aiming for £500 (500 books), a break from being a "human dictionary", and a lot of smiles on my students' faces!! :)

Thank you, merci, misaotra betsaka!!
