Hi and thanks for taking the time to visit my site. This site was started in August 2011 to help raise money for my World Challenge Trip to South America next year, where along with other members of my school, I will be helping the Kichwa community of Chichicorumi in Ecuador to sustain their way of living. To date projects having included the introduction of running water into the village and the building of a new school block.
To go on the trip I need to raise £5,000 to cover my contribution to the fundraising and I have been trying to raise the money every way I can. It’s not easy when you are only 15!
So in addition to running errands and being a general dogsbody to people for money. I have cooked a curry for 70 people, which was hectic but thankfully nobody got food poisoning and was sick.And I have baked 400 cookies which were sold at a local primary school. I can’t say for sure that nobody got sick at that one as a few of the children did buy a lot of cookies. I am also planning a quiz night just before Christmas and a raffle for some of my most prize possessions including my 5 foot teddy bear named Teddy (not very original I know).
A family friend suggested I also set up a website to try and help with my fundraising. So after a lot of thinking I decided to make one about one of my favourite things, finding the right dress for a night out aka going out dresses. I hope to work on this site every day researching and adding dresses as I find them, making it as easy as possible for you to find the right dress for you.
So how does this site make money? Well apparently if you click through from my site and buy a dress I will make a commission from the shop that sells it – well that’s what I have been told. We will see…
If you have any suggestions on how I can make this site better or any great ideas about fundraising please drop me a note here – contact me
