I am a 17 year old cricketer chasing  my dream of playing cricket professionally for Warwickshire Cricket Club and hopefully England, I am currently part of the Emerging players programme at Warwickshire CC and have been invited to go on a 10 day tour to Sri Lanka in February 2017. All the players have been asked to come up with innovative ideas of raising money ,Warwickshire  CC have generously paid half of the cost leaving the other half to me. A part of the tour is coaching children who have been through a lot in their lives in particular those that live in  a village called Seenigama which suffered badly following the tsunami in 2004 and with a large percentages of the money raised I  would like to take some cricket clothing out to them, when we go and thought that crowd funding would be a good idea, the remainder of the money would go towards my tour costs, the charity surrounding the work in Seenigama is called The Foundation of Goodness and has been supported previously by individuals like Sir Ian Botham, Shane Wayne and Kimar Sangakarra, and I would love to raise some money  to enable me to do this, I hope that the great British public can help me.

Any support would be fantastic and hope I can repay your generosity in the future
