Fundraising pages are a fantastic way to collect donations and make the whole fundraising process mighty simple. As all your friends and supporters will be visiting your page it’s important to make sure it’s full of absorbing content and looking it’s best.

Luckily for you that is exactly what this post is for. Below is a host of content for you to simply cut & paste into your fundraising page.

If you’re smart enough to be using the Cool Earth fundraising platform then you can customise it to your heart’s content with some simple html code. There’s a excellent guide for any curious coding novices here.

A short bit of text on the charity you’re supporting is essential for any good fundraising pages. It helps people supporting your page to feel more connected to their donation. Here’s a great piece on Cool Earth that you can copy straight into your page. 

Cool Earth are the official charity of the Adventurists, to put it simply they save rainforest and they do a damn fine job of it.

Now saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it however is.

Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently.

They don’t create reserves or put up fences. They don’t buy land. Instead, they put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest.

These people have lived in the forest for countless generations and their homes are now on the frontline of deforestation.

By building better incomes, better schools and better clinics, Cool Earth give their partner villages the resources they need to keep their forest intact.

Cool Earth is now working alongside 113 rainforest villages throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over 500,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws and bulldozers.

The clever part is that this forest forms a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.

The Adventurists had this to say on Cool Earth

“We must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about the carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent”.

If your fundraising page supports videos then here is a great Cool Earth explainer video for your page. Just copy the url below and away you go.
