Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
As a 20 year old student I want to raise £50,000 to personally help build new schools in Africa as well as funding the continuation and protection of wildlife reserves.
One of my biggest loves in life is for animals. Every day wild animals are becoming endangered from poaching and abuse. Animals have feelings just as much as we do, hold so much more compassion and they deserve to be protected.The wildlife reserves in Africa work to protect these threatened species. I hope to raise enough money to expand these reservations by building new camps and quarantine facilities in Bambelela wildlife Sanctuary for abandoned newborns, buying more land, funding for food and medical supplies to heal the sick and injured animals and work as part of a project to re-introduce endangered animals to the wild, as well as helping promote the beauty of the bond between people and the wilderness that seems to have been lost.
As well as this I hope to raise enough money to open more opportunities to the children in Southern Africa. The children there are so pure. They have such passionate dreams and ambitions but such little opportunities. It's heartbreaking the think of the differences between us and them. The average earnings are 75p a day. No-one should have to live off that little a day. How could anyone? I couldn't imagine living the life of fear, having such a dream about my future but knowing it's probably never going to have a chance of coming true. its costs £600 to build school toilets, £1000 to install drinking water, £4000 to build a new classroom.
Chances are there to be given and everyone deserves that chance. I want to help make a difference. Please help me get there.
