Fundraising towards an Outward Bound course isn't just for teens. Adults of all ages choose fundraising as an option to cover their course fees. Read watchmate Emma's notes on her fundraising journey.
Selling chocolates has turned out to be my biggest winner so far. I bought special fundraising packs of Cadbury at a cheaper rate, which gave me some profit towards my course. My boss allowed me to sell them at work and one of my friends took a box into her office too.
Every little helps
Selling belongings on Trademe, contributions from friends, family and local businesses, completing additional jobs and savings from my weekly wages helped me to push up the total. I've also written to my local Lions and Rotary Clubs in the hope that they will support me. In return, I've offered to help out with community projects and present to their members following my OB experience. I'm proud to say I have fundraised and saved a total of $1,850.
I am so excited to finally be going on this journey."
