    Education Through Expedition- Life time opportunaity for local school children

    Hello, I am a Thrive Practitioner (Support and development of emotional well being in young children) at a local primary school, We are looking at taking 16 disadvantaged children away for free to Finland in March, This would be an opportunity of a life time for these children and can help them develop life skills and have real life experiences that these children just do not have. We started a crowdfunding campaign with some great backers and support and are now 93% complete but we are looking to get the word out to people. If anyone can tweet it, post it, link the campaign, use carrier pigeons or a message in a bottle...anything at all would be a great help.

    If you can recommend any ways to do so that would be great or even better if you want to support the project that would be outstanding!
    Any extra we receive will be put toward to running the same trip next year for another group of children

    Kind Regards,

    Hi,

    Not in one day its been about 2 weeks of funding, the schools have really gotten behind us with fun days, muftis and staff nights to raise money and we have had some good support from local businesses, This really is a great opportunity for all the young children.

    Thanks for checking out the pages, hopefully you were able to put in just 1 helps!

    Good Morning all,

    This morning we have educational workshops (To support the launch of the project and to give every child an insight not just the ones selected to go to Finland) going on throughout the chosen schools, to teach the children about north and south poles, how to deal with the harsh weather conditions and the type of animals that can be found there. Most of these children have never been to the zoo or even the beach so I'm sure this would be a great experience for them.

    Any support would be greatly appreciated, 94% complete with just 21days to go!!
