    Default Crowdfunding / fundraising

    I see that justgiving has a crowd funding section where you can raise funds for personal projects however there is a 5% fee deducted from the total

    Are there any "free" crowd funding sites that you can use for raising funds to help assist children reach a target ?

    Reason I ask is my youngest has been selected to represent the county on an international trip with the girl guiding association and she has to raise the money for the trip and kit

    Ideally I want to be able to post a link to family/friends/forum acquaintances to give her fund raising a boost.

    TIA

    The Virgin crowdfunding site is better, I believe. BT also do a good site.

    (One of my FB friends did research on this recently)
