My Volunteer Trip to Ghana
Hi, my name is Tim Schou. Long story short, I write songs, sleep on couches and travel the world, recording and performing my music.
What I would like to do:
Back in 2016, I was contacted by a woman named Sonja Liggett-Igelmund. She asked me to help her raise money for a project called "Meeting Bismarck". An organization focused on building a new school for children and a midwife's home in "Have", a small village in Ghana. I gladly offered my help and in December 2016, I played 2 successful charity shows in Germany, including one of the worlds biggest churches, Cologne Cathedral.
I will be going down to meet the kids at their schools and give them a week of experiences, they'll never forget and at the end of the trip I'm inviting all of them to a big show in an abandoned church.
This effort will not only be for this trip, it will also be to gain focus on the projects future and the work we're trying to do. The more focus I can help to create, the better, and I will do so through documenting and telling my story about these children in "Have." Further than that, we're having a big German tv channel "WDR" documenting and telling the story on German TV this coming June.
I'm hoping some will find it in their hearts to donate.
What's In It for you?
Like I said, I don't have much to give, but besides the feeling of doing something good for others, you will get a MP3 of one of my unreleased songs as a thank you. If you'd like to familiarize yourself with my music before you donate you can check it out right here; www.timschouonline.com - Although hopefully the cause in itself will motivate you enough.
Anyone who donates +50 euros will also be getting a full report of the trip including pictures and videos and will receive a MP3 of a cover I recorded of Coldplay's "Fix You".
Anyone who donates +100 euros will receive all above + a video bundle of 3 new unreleased music videos.
Thank you so much for your kind donations, I promise to give back tenfold and keep you guys updated on the whole thing.
Best, Tim Schou
Ps. GoFundMe is not supported in Denmark yet, so I'm running the campaign through my German assistants account, Uli Zarges. She'll also be helping me as we get closer to the logistics of the trip etc.
