    Just wanted a few peoples views on this,

    Hopefully in September im going to be heading over to Fiji to do a lot of volunteer activities (Sports coaching, Building projects etc.) and obviously need a fair sum of money to fund this. I have a fair bit saved up but not enough yet so my Mum suggested doing a fundraiser of some sort.

    Just wondering if you would actually donate money to someone who would be going volunteering to help others, but also to see the sights around the country. Personally I'd be kind of reluctant to give money to someone like myself as it feels like funding a holiday for them, its abouy 75% Volunteering and the rest leisure time,

    Just wondering what others views on this are?

    Note, I am not asking for donations, Yet anyway haha!

    Thanks!

    Unless it was organised with a registered charity, then I am afraid . . . . no from me.

    That's the sort of thing i expected to hear, it's with a volunteering agency, would be highly surprised if they were a registered charity!
