    The sum achieves the first four targets and gives the kids a Christmas celebration with a movie screening under the stars as well as buying much needed sporting equipment, art supplies and new library books for their falling down school.

    By 3.30pm yesterday the total had hit $2522 from 98 individual donations, with most giving between $10 and $20.

    By the same time today the total was at $3680 from 136 donations.

    Crowdfunding is a means to raise money through the networking powers of the web and gives even the smallest donations real power. It has been effective in – amongst other things – helping put Barack Obama in the White House.

    This year’s Christmas drive is being organised through the work of charity Little and LOUD, which was started earlier this year by three young women determined to make a difference after visiting the island settlement.

    The money will go directly to the organisation's first project; providing sporting equipment, art material and repairing a primary school in a remote village located in the Solomon Islands, a small island country located east of Papua New Guinea.

    Founded in June 2008, the organization began as a response to what started off as a holiday and turned into a life enriching and life changing experience for three travellers and close friends. Little and LOUD is dedicated to advocating for the free expression of children and youth through story telling and creative communication. We seek to assist institutions for children and youth in providing quality learning and playing environments while building relationships between communities that break boundaries and prejudices.
