It has been my goal for quite some time now to set up a charity fund raiser in aid of The National Autistic Society. My reasoning behind choosing this particular charity is because my little brother has Autism. Since being diagnosed many years ago, my brother has received many opportunities in order to help keep him busy and active. Our family is extremely grateful for all the help received, therefor would like to give something back.
As I am currently studying at University, it is hard for me to find the funds to set up an event. My plan is to find as many sponsors as possible but also to raise some funds towards things that may not be able to be sponsored... this is why I set up an Indiegogo campaign.
Indiegogo is a website which allows people to set up their own campaigns in order to raise money for a specific project. This can range from making an independent film to organising an event. The minimum amount you can ask for on Indiegogo is £500. This is a lot of money which, I of course, am not expecting to raise in such a small amount of time. I will be grateful for any donations made, every little bit helps and will make a huge difference in setting up this event.
All I ask from my readers is that you like and share my campaign. All it needs is a little recognition in order to raise as much funding as possible. Any donations made which do not go towards organising this event will go straight to The National Autistic Society.
