Ahoy there Adventurists.
First of all let me take this opportunity to introduce myself.
I’m Jess and I’m “Adventurist Fundraising Guru Mark II”. I’m here to answer all your fundraising queries, from how to set up your fundraising page to the best ways to screw money out of your boss.
If you need Cool Earth photos to help promote your fundraising efforts, or more reasons why saving the rainforest is a damn good idea, I’m here to help.
I wanted to kick off with some exciting information. Each year Cool Earth and The Adventurists run a competition, a competition like no other.
All teams that raise over £1,000 for Cool Earth get entered into a draw (which may or may not feature racing snails). If your team wins, you’ll be off on an all expenses paid trip to the heart of the rainforest where you will stay with our rainforest partners, the Asháninka.
Cool Earth’s Asháninka partnership is made up of 16 villages in Peru’s Ene Valley. The valley is one of the world’s most at-risk forests, with illegal logging and coca destroying lives and the landscape. Saving this forest is where all money raised by you lot is spent. And if you win the competition you’ll get to see the difference you’ve made first hand. We think that’s a pretty smashing prize.
To help you get to that £1,000 we’ve put together loads of fundraising tips, from Adventure specific resources to how to spice up your fundraising page, and how to get your face in the press to a fundraising master class from Adventurist alumni. It’s all there ready and waiting.
So what are you waiting for? Start tapping up your workmates, friends, and impressionable relations, and this could be you…
Onwards, save the world, we salute you.
