Help me make more money for charity than 'off grid parents'
I want you all to chip in for my plot of land and free holiday in Costa Rica.
No not really.
Lets not give money to people like this. I don't want a free holiday and a plot of land bought for me. Let these people fund their own self sufficient lifestyle.
As a product of a rich country, where knowledge is valued, where doctors work hard every day saving childrens lives, where teachers work extremely hard to ensure our children learn and benefit from knowing how to read and count I don't feel like society should be paying for my dream to come true.
There are children in the world with no parents. children who work in horrendous conditions, in horrendous jobs, children who often die while they're still children, like those from Victorian England you most probably would have learned about in school. These children don't go to school, 215 million of them. Children who would give their right arm for a vaccination, a welfare system, to be given the chance to read and write, a home. .
What will I do with your money?
Give it directly to Charity, unless you specify a different childrens charity of your choice the money will go to Unicef.
- I will personally pay the 5% FundMyTravel fee for the first £1000 worth of donations.
- Because the money will be coming from my personal funds the charity will be able to claim up to 25% tax relief on the donation
- Unicef will receive any donation unless you specify a childrens charity of your choice
- Every time a donation is made I will update proof of payment in the updates section below
I don't expect to make anything to be honest but would like to try and make at least as much as those people who want £100K for themselves.
£5 donated, sent straight to Unicef. Thanks people. Its only £25 so far but thats £25 more than before.
After setting up yesterday we have received our first donation which has gone to Unicef.
I am happy to cover the 5% FundMyTravel fee up to the first £1000, after that I will take the fee from the donation.
However, since any donations would technically be my own money then which ever charity we forward the money to will be able to claim tax relief on the donation.
