Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am a 20 year old student studying ocean science and marine conservation at Plymouth University. My personal goal is to raise over £3000 for Hope for children. I see this as an achievable number however, I am going to try to raise as much as I possibly can as I believe that this as a highly worthy charity. I will be trekking to the base camp of Mount Everest (17,600ft). I have always been highly motivated to help others and I feel like this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
Hope for children is an international organisation that believes that every child from all around the world is entitled to having a happy, healthy and positive childhood also including a stable and safe family environment. Hope for children was founded in 1994 by Dr Bob Parsons, its role is to enable vulnerable children particularly living in rural and urban extreme poverty to experience a happy and safe childhood by developing their self-confidence as well as self-esteem and also by enabling them access to education, healthcare and also by empowering families to support themselves as well as their future children. Hope for children is currently sustainably working in 9 different countries –Ghana, India, The Philippines, Kenya, Uganda, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Tanzania and also the UK.
I personally believe that it is truly amazing how such a small charity is able to help so many children around the world and really make a difference to their lives. I am determined to meet my goal of raising £2900 and I also hope to raise awareness of their work so that I myself can say that I have contributed to making the world a better place.
I have always had the dream of trekking to the foot of the highest, and in my opinion, the most impressive mountain in the world and now that dream is reality-I get to raise money for such an amazing and inspiring charity whilst doing so too. This will definitely be a very challenging and scary experience for me and training will be needed in order for me to complete the 17,600ft ascent but I am highly motivated to try by best and determined to raise as much money as possible for Hope for children.
Any donation, big or small, would be appreciated, even by spreading the word of Hope for Children, you can have a massive impact. Thank you ever so much for your support!
