The Fundraising Begins...!   (published in South Africa)

Began my fundraising today with a "Guess how many sweets" competition. It raised over £100 today alone! I would recommend this to anyone who is struggling to come up with simple but effective fundraising ideas, this is cheap and people are eager to engage!

Fundraising has begun for my trip to Italy. Over the Christmas period I have gathered together some books, video games, clothes, boardgames and other items. I am selling all of the items pictured on Ebay and Depop (selling app similar to Ebay) in order to raise money and reach my target of £1685. You can find me via these links:

ebay.co.uk/usr/emmakerrison - everything on this page goes towards my funraising target

depop.com/emkerrison_ - selected clothing items on this page are there to help me raise money

depop.com/secondhxndbooks - dedicated to selling my old books, everything on this page goes towards my funraising target

Please contanct me on Facebook or Twitter (@emkxrry) if you have any fundraising ideas for fulltime strudents that have worked for you, or if you've heard of them working for someone you know.

I got 99 Problems and Money is 1!   (published in Belize)

It's almost the end of the year, and we are roughly a month away from 2018! I could hardly wait to go to Belize. Although I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to Worcester, Massachusetts at the age of 9, this will be my first time going "abroad" or be away from home. The trip is absolutely costly, majority of which go towards the flight and to the organization itself because projects wouldn't be possible without the financial support from outside sources. Because essentially, what's the point of volunteering/interning when you have nowhere to volunteer in? Projects Abroad provides that opportunity but being able to start projects in a country, AND having paid staff who overlooks these projects, is unquestionably not free.

 

Well... here's what I ended up doing:

I was looking over my budget and realized that I would simply run short. However, it doesn't hurt to reach out to family, friends, co-workers, loved ones, who will support you through your endeavors. Hence why I humbly began a fundraising page on Facebook. It's a great platform for fundraising (minus the fees and taxes which I totally  despise). A fundraising page on Facebook is basically equal to an events page because you get to invite people whom are already on your friends list. You could also promote it by sharing the page on your newsfeed as much as you'd like, AND update your supporters every now and then. It's awesome! So I highly suggest utilizing Facebook because it maximizes the reach of social media. 

So anyways, as of today, I am approximately 3 weeks away from the deadline of dues, and in less than TWO weeks I've raised about 45% of my total goal, almost halfway there! I am so overwhelmed by the love and support!!! There are immensely kind people everywhere and it never hurts to ask for assistance, for as long as you remain grateful!

Generous donations for underprivileged children from physiotherapy volunteer Jarrah Nesbitt   (published in Vietnam)

We'd love to send a big thank and shoutout to physiotherapy volunteer Jarrah Nesbitt (Australia) for her pre-arrival efforts to collect children clothes and raise fund to buy school supplies for the orphaned children at the placement she works in Vietnam. The pack has arrived in Hanoi (Vietnam) and Jarrah and her fellow volunteers at the placement have been busy distributing them to everyone at Bo De placement. Let's look at the happy faces of the children in the pretty clothes and with the new pens, pencils and other stationeries as they would be a big encouragement and of great help for the pre-school children:

A Day of Video Games

A Day of Video Games.

Whilst my family is providing most of the funds for the trip, I am planning on holding various fundraising events through my school and community. On Saturday 1st February, I invited a group of friends over for a fundraising video game tournament. You may have noticed my slightly nerdy passion for video games, and my friends, gamers or not, were all willing to pick up a controller for charity. With a close friend kindly letting me borrow his console, we set up two TV's, two consoles, and a lot of snacks. The event was a success, with everyone taking part in games such as Mortal Kombat, Call Of Duty, and Mario Kart, we certainly put the fun back into fundraising (Dear me, that was cheesy; I promise it won't happen again). After an afternoon of geeky brilliance, and far too much shouting at a TV screen, the day was over. All that now left was the memory of a fun day, some money towards my trip, and the slightly stale smell of teenager in my living room.
