Supporting Demi to help others

demiDaughter of foster carers, Demi, is an ambitious and creative teenager who is keen to make a difference and support those less fortunate than herself. Demi wanted to give back in her own way, and is fundraising to go on an expedition to Malawi. For part of this trip, Demi will be visiting children at an orphanage and building a water well for the orphans to use.

Demi asked the marketing team at Capstone Foster Care for support on how she could fundraise money for the trip. Raising money in various ways is part of the experience she is gaining. As Demi was keen to get involved in marketing activities, and share her experiences of fostering, Capstone sponsored Demi to provide content for Capstone to share on social media.

Demi has written poems and shared video blogs about her insight into fostering. Demi’s insightful and compassionate poems and videos reached thousands across social media platforms. As her confidence increased, Demi also spoke about her experiences of being a birth child to a group at a Skills to Foster training session.

Demi is excited about her upcoming adventure to Malawi and has enjoyed the marketing experience she has gained. She will be attending college in September, and she is keen to consider marketing as a potential career path.
