I'm doing my Duke of Edinburgh - Gold Award. What I'm asking for will help fund my Residential section.

Just in case you've never heard of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the video I've added explains the course well!

I hate to cough up a sob story but rarely will I get an opportunity like this again.
I left foster care 4 years ago. My life has been full of the weirdest and also most wonderful people and events.
Since I became an "Adult" :/, I've managed to maintain a fairly decent running income from web design and development as a part-time passion whilst popping in and out of 0 hours contracts and voluntary jobs for months at a time. Pretty clueless on my own, I'm glad to have shared the majority of these years with my partner who has been into web dev since he was little too.

It's been 2 years when we started our adventure as business partners (on top of being forever soulmates).
Earlier this year, I got caught up in an accident that wasn't my fault which has left me going at 50% at best. To be honest, we've been struggling to get our business off the ground.
I'm sure I will recover in time for my Easter Sailing Residential Expedition! 

This is going to be well out of my comfort zone for sure!
This is more than just plain sailing.
This is a chance for a different life, one which breeds success in, not just myself, but everyone I meet!
Please help me to help the world and everyone in it. :)

Gosh knows, I might even teach you and/or others how to safely sail the seven seas some time!
