What did you find most effective?
"Being honest. I knew it would be hard to fundraise for a cause abroad so I just spoke to people and explained how this was an amazing opportunity. I helped people understand that it would let me develop my skills abroad, which I would then be able to bring home and use with those in need here.
What are your top tips?

• Do something that will only cover part of the costs.
• Be honest with business, fundraising for a foreign organisation can be difficult especial when there are many super local organisations at home but if you share your story, you’d be surprise how much there willing to help.
