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.
Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout sub-Saharan Africa, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water. Women and girls especially bear the burden of walking miles at a time to gather water from streams and ponds - full of water-borne disease that is making them and their families sick. Illness from drinking dirty water and the time lost fetching it robs entire communities of their futures.
Over the next two weeks, Ollie and Ben will complete ‘The Water Challenge’ - a campain to encourage people to drink only water for a two week period and donate any money saved to The Water Project Charity. Additionally, at the end of the two weeks, we will do a 7 hour hike to raise further awareness for the water problems in Africa.
This money raised will all be donated to The Water Project. It would be great if you could support us! Just £2 helps to save lives!
