Campaign by

The Freebird Club


Building bridges

to an age-friendly


The Freebird Club team has big

plans and even bigger dreams to

develop and grow the Club to

achieve the kind of impact that can

make a difference in people’s lives.

As part of our development strategy, we are

undertaking a crowdfunding campaign to raise

funds to build the kind of organisation capable of

delivering on our vision. We need money to hire

staff, develop the technology, carry out international

marketing and provide best-in-class customer

service that are fitting for our growing membership

and global ambitions. We have come this far on

belief, hard work and very limited resources. We

now need your help to write the next chapter.

The Freebird Club enables social travel and homestays

for over 50s, but it is about much more than travel

and accommodation – it is about people. We want

to help ensure that people continue to live a vibrant


and fun-filled life as they grow older. We want to help

people enjoy their “golden years,” by building bridges

and connections between them, and in the process

reducing the risk of loneliness and isolation in older

age. In other words, we want to change the narrative

on ageing. A successful crowdfunding campaign will

give us the resources to do that.

Our “Golden Age” crowdfunding campaign started

on the INDIEGOGO platform in late October. We

are looking for people to get behind the campaign,

whether by contributing directly and/or spreading

the word. We are looking to reach as many people

as possible with this campaign, so we kindly ask you

to share our campaign with your friends, family and

wider network. Each share will be a building block

for a more inclusive age-friendly world. Your support

can help us make a real difference in re-defining what

ageing looks like for older adults everywhere. Let’s

make this a fun world to grow old in!

Campaign coming soon – we need your help to

make it work! Go to freebirdclub.com for more
