BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE GREAT GREEN MACAW INC

EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013

THE STORY:

Click "See More" for Event Details 

Help the Friends of the Great Green Macaw (doing business as The Rainforest Biodiversity Group) raise money to support conservation in the tropics, like preserving important wintering habitat for neo-tropical migrants, by participating in our annual Bird-a-Thon! You can help the Rainforest Biodiversity Group meet our $10,000 goal in one of two ways:

  1. Make a donation – just hit the Donate button on this page. Donations of $50 or more will get a Bird-a-Thon t-shirt!  Be sure to provide your t-shirt size and shipping address in the Comment, In Memory, Tribute (Optional): box on the Donation Page.
  2. Participate as a birder on May 11th - help us raise money by getting friends and family to sponsor your effort. All birders will receive a complimentary Bird-a-Thon t-shirt! See Participating as a Birder section below for more details.

Prizes for Birders:

The birder who raises the most money for the organization will receive a $250 Visa gift card! Also, the birder who sees the highest number of species will receive a North Face lumbar pack, perfect for carrying all your birding gear!

Funds Raised Will be Used For:

Money raised during the 2013 Bird-a-Thon will primarily be used to support our Small Grants Program. The 2012 recipient, Osa Conservation, received $2,000 to help build a Turtle Hatchery, where they will protect and release up to 10, 000 sea turtles annually.  Click here to learn more about this great project.

Participating as a Birder:

Click on the “Create Your Own Fundraiser” button and create your own free and easy-to-setup Bird-a-Thon webpage on Crowdrise. You can choose to collect flat donations for your effort, or to collect a certain amount per bird species seen ($0.50, $1.00 per/species). Then, on May 11, all you have to do is bird anywhere you like!

Collecting Donations - It will be up to you as the birder to collect your donations, either by credit card via your secure Crowdrise fundraising page, or through cash or check in person. If you collect cash or checks, please be sure to enter these totals into your Crowdrise webpage, so they may be added to your overall total and put you closer to winning the big prize!  Also, be sure to let your donors know that if they donate more than $50, they are eligible to receive a Bird-a-Thon t-shirt, but they must give you their t-shirt size and address if shipping is necessary. This information should be collected at the time they make their donation, either on their check, or in the Comment, In Memory, Tribute (Optional): box on the Donation Page.
