Help the Venezuelan Team to participate in the most important Human Rights Competition in America!

Hello everyone & welcome to American UCAB Team's money pot!With just 1-click you can help finance a project* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!About us: We are the team of 3 Law students and 1 Lawyer (our Coach!) representing the Andrés Bello Catholic University before the 23rd Edition of the Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition to be held in Washington DC at the Washington College of Law, American University, made by Daniela Suárez and Ignacio Ayala as orators and Mariana Scolaro and Estefanía De Abreu as their coaches.This is the most important human rights competition in America, bringing together more than 100 universities worldwide, and addressing matters of outmost importance for the development and better understanding of the current human rights challenges across the globe. Therefore, it represents for us a meaningful opportunity to be part of that growth, actively colaborate with it, and face the challenge of overcoming ourselves. Your donation will help us cover the competition´s costs: registration´s fee, air fare from Venezuela to Washington, D.C., accomodation and food expenses. Without your contribution, it would be extremely difficult for us to attain the neccesary funding in order to achieve our goal, given the adverse and complex economic situation in our country: a rampant inflation that makes planning difficult, and exchange control system and a limited access to plane tickets, as a few explamples. Help us training talent and raising voices for the defense and protection of Human Rights! Any contribution, however small it may seem, is big enough to make the difference! And please, do not forget to share our campaign! --- Somos un Equipo de 3 estudiantes de Derecho y 1 Abogada (¡nuestra Entrenadora!) representantes de la Universidad Católica Andrés Bello (Caracas, Venezuela) ante la 23a Edición del Concurso Interamericano de Derechos Humanos, conformado por Daniela Suárez e Ignacio Ayala como oradores, y Mariana Scolaro y Estefanía De Abreu como sus entrenadores. Esta competencia tiene lugar cada año en Washington D.C., en la sede del Washington College of Law, American University, y es la más importante del contienente americano en materia de Derechos Humanos, reuniendo a más de 100 universidades de todo el mundo, y discutiendo los temas de mayor trascendencia para el desarrollo y mejor entendimiento de los retos que actualmente enfrentan muchos países en este campo. Por tanto, esto representa para nosotros una oportunidad sumamente valiosa para ser parte de ese crecimiento académico, formarnos para colaborar activamente en la práctica, así como enfrentarnos al reto de superarnos a nosotros mismos. Sus donaciones nos ayudarán a cubrir los costos de la competencia: cuota de inscripción del Equipo, boletos de avión desde Caracas, Venezuela hasta Washington, D.C., Estados Unidos, y otros gastos relacionados a nuestra estadía en Washington, D.C. durante una semana, como alojamiento y alimentación. En definitiva, sin su colaboración sería en extremo difícil obtener los fondos necesarios para lograr nuestros objetivos, dada la adversa y compleja situación económica que aqueja a nuestro país en la actualidad: una hiperinflación que imposibilita una planificación adecuada, el régimen de control cambiario y el acceso limitado a boletos de avión son solo algunos ejemplos. ¡Ayúdanos a seguir formndo talentos y voces para la defensa de los Derechos Humanos! ¡Cualquier colaboración puede hacer la diferencia! Y por favor, ¡no olvides difundir nuestra campaña!

Replacement Manfred Strössenreuther Trophy Fund

Replacement Manfred Strössenreuther Trophy Fund

Hello everyoneAfter the unexpected death of Manfred Strössenreuther in spring 1986, the South African Aero Club, represented by Peter Celliers, donated the Manfred Strössenreuther "Freedom of Flight" Trophy to the German Aero Club at the 1986 World Aerobatic Championships at South Cerney in Great Britain. This became a floating CIVA / FAI trophy, and was first awarded to the winner of the Final Freestyle programme at the 1986 WAC - in this case to Petr Jirmus of Czechloslovakia. Sadly this lovely trophy became lost after presentation to US pilot Zach Heffley at the 2007 World Championships, that year held at Grenada in Spain. Despite wide-ranging searches no trace of it has ever been found. Donations are now sought to finance a replacement trophy that will be awarded to future FAI World Champions in the Final Freestyle programme, starting with the 2019 WAC at Chateauroux in France. Please use the donation panel on the right here to help us to build this fund so that we can commission a replacement for this trophy. Our target is €15,000 and the fund will remain open until the next CIVA Plenary Conference in Warsaw, November 2018. Thank you!Final Freestyle World Aerobatic Champions1986 - Petr Jirmus, Czechloslovakia1988 - Patrick Paris, France1990 - Jurgis Kairis, USSR1994 - Jurgis Kairis, Lithuania1996 - Patrick Paris, France1998 - Roland Dominique, France2000 - Peter Besenyei, Hungary2001 - Klaus Schrodt, Germany2005 - Klaus Schrodt, Germany2007 - Zachery Heffley, United States2009 - Renaud Ecalle, France2011 - Rob Holland, United States2013 - Rob Holland, United States2015 - Rob Holland, United States2017 - Rob Holland, United States

Raise for the blind

Raise for the blind

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!My name is Andria Paphitis and I am partially sighted in my right eye.i was born with a cataract, squint and nystagmus. The nystagmus is in both eyes unfortunately. I had the cataract removed when I was 3 months old but it left me with only 5% vision but it does no help because how much it has been drifted inwards facing toward my nose by the squint.this affects my left eye a lot because it puts a strain in my vision as it is trying to work double the time because of the loss of vision in the right eye. I have had several cosmetic operations regarding the squint because it has a big impact in my daily life. I feel very uncomfortable in my self and ashamed of it that I have to cover it up like I am a pirate or something because I just hate the look of it. Makes me feel like I am a freak.  The squint operations did no help because the eye is so weak and the stem cells aren’t connected to the brain because they were damaged with the cataract they had to be removed too as well as the lense.  I really would like to feel like a normal human and be confident for once in my life. I am now 20 years of age and still ‘til this day feel like a freak. I need to raise money to book for a private surgery to be proceeded on my right eye to either get a transplant of some sort or at least straighten the eye so it looks as if I can see and it won’t be such an issue for the appearance and I wouldn’t feel ashamed and won’t have to cover my eye with my fringe like an odd person.  Would be so so lovely if you could help me raise as much as possible to make this a reality and not just a hopeless dream.  Thank you you for taking your time to read this, if you would like to know more about my story please email me at   and I will answer any questions you may have.  Thanks again ! lets get raising!!!!

Wheat Drinking Straws

Wheat Drinking Straws

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot! There are approximately 8.5 billion disposable plastic drinking straws used annually in the UK alone and an astonishing 500 million used daily in the USA, making them one of the top 10 piece of debris found upon our beaches and coastlines. We dont have any figures yet for Spain, where we are based, but all you have to do is just visit the bars and hotels and think of the millions of tourists that arrive every year and that use plastic drinking straws everyday.Our aim is to introduce an alternative to plastics, one of the biggest most used items being drinking straws.We want to introduce wheat drinking straws, one use , biodegradable and ecologically freindly as well as fun to use. What we wish to do apart from selling wheat straws to businesses and private individuals in Spain is to educate people, mainly children in schools, to use alternatives to plastics. We aim to supply schools with FREE drinking straws and literature about how to not use plastic and to show what damage plastic is causing to the world and how simple it is to stop the increase in the damage being caused. To achieve our aim we need funds to provide the straws and the literature as well as to employ personel to visit schools throughout the country. We therefore are asking you to donate towards the project. We are at present developing a web site, called "Formula-Straw" where we will inform in English and Spanish of our project and its development. All our donators will, unless otherwise stated, be named on the site as pioneers for the project and will recieve our thanks.By donating you will be part of a World saving movement so please feel free to donate as much or as little as you wish, all amounts will be gratefully received.  With just 1-click you can help finance this project*  * All payments are 100% secure*  Thank you!
