Where does my money go ?

"All costs through our swim challenge are covered by us privately - all donations go to the charity, except banking fees and raffle fees  ", A. Hallbauer (Co-Founder of swim2africa).

At the current stage we are able and willing to privately fund the project.  We decided that none of the collected funds will be used to cover any costs of our swim challenge.  With this gesture we hope to signal that none of our sponsors and donators is supporting a swim adventure of two persons.  No profit will be made by the organizers. 

Depending on the amount of sponsorship we receive there is a likelihood that sponsored products will be auctioned after the trip and funds raised will also go to the charity groups.

Here some examples what your donation will do!

Just to give an idea, here some examples how much value your donation will have to these communities/orphanages supported by Hands Across Africa.
