UNICEF UK are over the moon to announce that their new online giving website, My Fundraising, has managed to rustle up an amazing £105,000 since in launch in March 2011. That’s an astounding £10,000 a week! The new website ensures that 100% of the money you donate or sponsor is accounted for without commission, plus it’s an excellent way to set yourself up online.
It’s easy to set up your page, with simple instructions throughout the process to guide you along. UNICEF supporters that are taking part in numerous weird and wonderful fundraising activities, have found the page really useful. Alongside the bike rides and sponsored walks was the rather unconventional method of fundraising by 17-year-old Joshua Haghani from London, who has managed to raise a staggering £11,000 by reciting the first 500 digits of π (pi) from memory.

I was hoping to inspire friends and family to make a contribution to UNICEF in support of bringing clean, fresh water to five villages in Malawi, but it turns out it’s me that’s been inspired by how many of you dived in to generously help this cause. Thank you.
