I started Crowdfunding when I was just 6 years old and on 17th October 2013 became the youngest person in the UK to successfully crowdfund a project online. I raised £746 which was 166% of my £450 target to get my seasonal recipe book published. You can still watch my video and learn about this crowdfunding project on the Crowdfunder.co.uk web site.
In November 2013 I went to London to the UK Crowdfunding Day conference at the Royal Geographical Society. I had an amazing time and went on stage to talk about my Cracking Good Recipes Crowdfunding project.
I was then awarded a certificate which said I am the First Young Ambassador for Crowdfunding the UK, which is brilliant because I want to be able to help other children to crowdfund for their projects and ideas.
My second Crowdfunding project is 'Food for Thought'. I managed to raise 100% of the target amount to help me get my second recipe book published. It has an international theme with recipes from across the world, and includes a food passport with stickers. All money raised from book sales go to Action Against Hunger. You can find out more and order your copy of the book here. (Be quick - I've almost sold out!)
Crowdfunding has taught me that anything is possible if we work with others and that it is okay to ask for help.
