Evening all. Basically, at my school we've been offered to go on a World Challenge Expedition, to India and the Himalayas in summer 2013. For those of you who don't know, World Challenge is a company that takes you to some developing country, where accomodation, food etc is the responsibility of us youngsters (I'm 15). It's 4 weeks, spent hiking and helping local people. then R&R at the very end. That's not really important, but the trip costs £3500 each. I have a part time job, I'll get a better one when I'm 16, but I need some tips on fundraising strategies to help me get there. I've previously done a few sponsored runs/swims, but I live rurally so there's only so much I can get from that.

tl;dr How can I raise £3500 by next summer? I don't have to have the full amount by the time we leave. All suggestions welcome, but I don't plan to sell any body parts.

I'll probably have to do that when I'm actually there, to barter for food or something, and I plan to make that the only time. I'll be in a team on about 10, so group ideas also work. And not group prostitution either.

Get the whole group of World Challengers together and organise a Battle of the Bands, or a talent show, or whatever at school. That's how people at my school made some cash. Group activities seemed to do the best for everybody. Bag packing at Tesco.

Edit: Also, I'll pay you £20 plus your train fare to come to Scotland and lend me your 'services'.

At minimum wage of the UK, earning £3500 in a year would require working about 18 hours a week.


I'll be in 6th form though, so I'll need to do a lot of work to stay on top. I appreciate that the job I have lined up will make up a big margin, but I don't think it will be enough.

Right, thanks. I was planning to go bag packingwith the rest, and the rumour is that going to the local Waitrose instead gets about 4x as much money.

I might be hideously deformed for all you know, worst £20 you ever spent.

Stop by Australia on your way and work in the mines for a month.

Or clinical testing .. it pays loads .. dunno if there's an age minimum .. test some cream out for a bit .. my mate did it, but you might lose your hair, or balls, or both .. he's still the same old dickhead though .. on the outside.

Who is telling you this shit?

I go to the Himalayas fairly often (its a 12 hour drive), and believe me EVERYTHING is cheap there.

Ok, look at it this way: 1 UKP = 75 INR

Accommodation per day = About 10 to 15 UKP tops
Food per day= About 8 UKP
Miscellaneous expenses= 5 UKP

So, is that more than you were told the expenses would be?

Work 2 hours a day in the week, and 8 on the weekend. Bam, 18 hours a week.

I suppose I might be able to get close to that, if I somewhat neglect my girlfriend, sport, and procrastinating time. The only problem is I'll be working as a lifeguard at the local leisure centre, and you tend to do short shifts. But I'll see what I can do, not gonna pretend it will be easy.

I was just joking about having to sell myself when I arrive, but it's a fixed cost, I guess World Challenge makes a decent profit out of it, despite the low cost of living. We'll be in tents for a few nights, so I suppose all the extra cash goes towards the luxuries at the end.

Sell your blood and semen. Have a car wash. Throw a huge party and have everyone donate some cash to pay for drinks and live entertainment, provide water and a birthday clown, pocket the rest of the cash, and run like hell.

Or you could do something like those pet wash things, except you wash people instead. It could work, and be lots of fun.

Anyone up for a mass pitmonkey convention at the Himalayas in 2013?


Don't ask how or who, but I got word from a source that there'll be some prostitutes there.


OT: Work 3 hours a day, you'll have the cash in 5 months. (At minimum wage).

Step 2: Work for your money.

Step 3: Non profit.

1. He's just a temporary fix while I think of a better idea. I have gone off him a bit.

2. I will be working, but it's hard to get the hours in while in full time education, I'm just asking for some ideas, like for group stuff.

3. That's the plan.

You got the joke Five points to you.

I feel you on the school/work situation - I had to do that through most of my formative years, so I get it. I'd look for night work - stuff that's early hours but not too extensively time consuming. Look for janitorial, shelving/stocking jobs. They're not glamorous, but they'll give you cash and you'll be doing them when you're not at school.

Yeah, no easy way round I guess, not gonna be fun though, I'm terrible if I don't get enough sleep. It's annoying that some kids, who I can imagine really struggling with the physical stuff, have parents who straight up agreed to just pay the whole thing. The good news is, if I don't get enough, then my parents will pay the extra, then I'll spend a little while paying them off, no interest or anything.

Set up a charity event at your school to sponsor what your are doing by selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I dont know how it works, and how much of a cut they take, but it could be worth a shot.
