Smile Organisation: JustGiving - a great way to support any charity for travellers

JustGiving is a website that makes it easy for you to support a charity, and makes it clear that all the money raised is ONLY going to the charity, and not paying for your fun trip! As a result donations are much better, and payment is easy for the donating person, and easy for you to manage.

Over 8000 charities are already using JustGiving to raise more money. Find out why the charity you work for should start fundraising online.

Webpages, Facebook apps, text donations and more.

Highly recommended.

JustGiving

There are others too ....

Hi Grant : Just Giving are good and I have used them. There are others that do a similar job such as www.bmycharity.com (used them last year) and www.virginmoneygiving.com who I will be using for my efforts this year.

Unique feature of VirginMoneyGiving is that you can choose to support more than one charity and the proportion split of the money raised is done automatically by the site, including Gift Aid if you are UK Tax payer!

Best Regards

Simon

Charity motorcycle ride around the world

My wife and I are preparing to ride our motorcycle around the world in December this year. We are a Canadian Couple living in Africa for the past 20 years. We are currently building the only Sports Academy for Orphans in Zambia. We are surrounded by 5000 orphans with no direct help or chance to do much with their life. Most of their parents died of AIDS, as there are places where 50 graves a day are dug to bury the dead.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
