I am running a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for my travel to New York. I am going to make a presentation at a conference organised by the UN as a part of the WFUNA Mission Possible programme that was done in my school. A few of my classmates and I did a crowdfunding campaign and raised funds to clean up and revive a 4.5-acre lake in Bangalore. We raised INR 8.7L and revived the lake in just 22 days.
I am travelling to New York to make a presentation on this project and share what we have learnt. I need to raise INR 2.5L. This includes the cost of travel, accommodation, meals, WIMUN New York Delegate Fee and more for the duration of the conference (10 days).
Given below are the expenses that will be covered if I reach my target.
My name is YATHAATH MURTHY. I am 13 years old and in grade 8 at Vidyashilp Academy, Bangalore.
I have entered the Limca Book of Records in 2017 and broke my own record this year (2019) as “Individual to sing the Most Number of National Anthems”. I am aiming at creating Guinness World Records too. I was invited to the United Nations Visitors Office, UN Headquarters, New York, to sing the National Anthems to the visitors of the United Nations. I was given a personal tour around the UN Building and was escorted to restricted areas where only UN Delegates are allowed to enter. One such place was where the 193 UN Member Countries flags are displayed where I was asked to hold the Indian Flag high, one of his proudest moments. Standing on the podium of the General Assembly, I was inspired to make it a real moment one day and address the General Assembly.
I am running this crowdfunding campaign to travel to New York and take part in the conference organised by the UN. I am going to present the project I did along with a few of my classmates from school. We raised funds to revive a 4.5-acre lake in Bangalore.
Please support this campaign and help make my dream a reality.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
