My story

[p]Since 2012 we have been spearheading positive change for young people in the UK by assembling groups of extraordinary people to step out of their comfort zones, challenge themselves and fundraise for Big Change. [/p][p]Big Change is a social impact accelerator that backs the biggest ideas that can create systemic change for young people. So far we have raised over £2.4 million from Strive. We have funded 18 innovative projects, published 5 research papers, garnered over £20 million in follow on funding and have built a community of thousands of Big Changers![/p][p]This year we will be Striving from Sardinia to the top of the highest peak in Western Europe, Mont Blanc... all under human power. [/p][p]Young people all over the world have personal struggles on a daily basis but with the right tools and support, I believe that we can unlock their true potential... Now, not just in the years to come! [/p][p]We can help them climb the metaphorical mountains within, so they can all see the beautiful view from the top of their own lives... the distance they have travelled and could travel in their futures. They really are the leaders of the not too distant future and account for a huge amount of the world's population. 43% of people in the world are under the age of 25, and 60% of the population of developing countries. We need to do as much as we can to help nurture them! [/p][p]Every penny raised goes to the front line. No amount is too small. Lots of small change still makes a Big Change. [/p][p]Thank you so much for your support![/p][p]Sam x[/p]
