About

Love rainforest? Love helping people?

We are looking for volunteers to help us gather donations for our Christmas fundraiser! We need great items to sell in a live and silent auction. All proceeds go directly to our clean water and rainforest initiatives in the Congo River Basin.

It's actually quite easy. Usually, all you have to do is ask. Businesses love to give products and services to great causes! Thet get exposure while helping!

A great way to get donations is to go store-to-store-to-restaurant-etc. In downtown Durham, Chapel Hill and Carrboro, for example, you could easily get hundreds to thousands in donations by going into local establishments asking for gift baskets, products and/or gift certificates for meals, hotel stays, bar tabs, etc. Of course, you can also email and/or call for donations.

It really is fun! Local businesses love to support local nonprofits and they also love the exposure to their business and being able to contribute in a very meaningful way to rainforest conservation and helping people!

We will provide you with brochures as well as an "ask" letter and nonprofit information you can use to ask for donations.

Give us a shout if you are interested! We hope to work with you soon!
