In February I started training, April 12th was the launch and now there are just 13 days left of our crowdfunding campaign. I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by, but that is just the way life is these days.
The amount of work that has gone into this campaign is more than I ever imagined and it has been stressfullll. I’ve been frustrated, worried, tired and welled up with tears, but I’ve valued the journey and all that its taught me. Going through the training actually helped me focus the direction of Young People Insight, which I’m really happy about.
This campaign will not only enable Young People Insight to empower the voices of more young people through increased funds, but it will also raise awareness of the platform, which is definitely needed.
We’re now into the final two weeks of the campaign and urgency is the name of the game. The target is £2300 and we’re not yet at the halfway mark, so please give a pledge of at least £3 if you can: http://bit.ly/empower-youth-voice
There are some great rewards on offer, including a special thank you video from yours truly filmed in a beautiful Italian theater, a collection of poetry by some of the young performers from our poetry nights and £10 off an L’s Up Official hat. L’s Up Official just happens to be a fashion brand run by two young men who are involved with YP Insight.
Also, continue to share the campaign as far and wide as you can, because one share could make all the difference in boosting up our total. Posts about our campaign are also on Just Croydon and The Voice, which you can share and use for validation as well.
I just want to take this time to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported, pledged and shared our campaign so far. We literally could not do it without you and I love you all for that.
If you haven’t seen it already, take a little time to watch Alana share her experience with Poetic Insight and don’t forget to head over to our campaign page: http://bit.ly/empower-youth-voice
