In the summer of 2018 I’m embarking on life changing expedition to Peru to improve the standard of living for those in the most poverty ridden areas. I'll be experiencing extreme terrains and conditions through deserts, canyons and rainforests including an intense 5 day trek up through the Andes mountains. During my expedition I will moving around various communities spreading aid to areas of need. Some of the projects I will be working on are: building school facilities to improve upon educational opportunities, improving upon agriculture opportunities (malnutrition is prevalent) and developing the sanitation facilities to make them safer to restrict the spread of disease. In addition to this, I will be highly involved in environmental reforestation projects that address habitat destruction. I will be experiencing different ways to make a difference to the quality of life for others and a change to the environment and learning new skills that will last a life timeI won’t pretend it's going to be easy, to be honest I’m quite scared, I’ve never been away from home for this long and I’m going to have to take big step to learn to be independent (considering I will just forget to eat if my mum doesn’t shove a sandwich at me) and although I’m well aware of what I will be doing and where I will be staying everything else is pretty much unknown. I'll be staying at altitude especially for the 2 main areas I will be visiting. They are 3339m and 2380m above sea level so acclimatising is is something I'll have to adjust to. Nevertheless, I couldn’t be more excited and eager about the adventure of a life time I’m partaking in. Of course one of the biggest obstacles I’m going to have to over come is actually getting there. Flying to Peru and back isn’t cheap and with all of the equipment my team and I are going to need as well as the money going directly to improve the community and quality of life there I need to raise a substantial amount £4,170 to be exact. So I’m asking for help. I’m doing as much as I can to raise the money but it is harder than it looks. I’ve planned to do everything from busking with my saxophone to cycling 99 miles dressed as a banana. But I’m not going to achieve anything without a bit of help from my friends, family, community and total strangers. So if you think you can help me travel to Peru and help this wonderful cause I would be forever grateful, any little helps. Even if you only willing to donate a pound (or maybe after reading this you decide that it is such a worthy cause and I’m such a spirited young Person you are willing to donate the full 4 grand straight away (((: ) any amount will contribute to my success and I promise to keep you posted. (If you want)If you would like any more information about anything to do with me or my expedition please don’t hesitate to contact me, I'd love to fill you in as I’m very excited and will tell just about anyone about this.

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
