THE STORY:

I am passionate about wildlife conservation and volunteer regularly in South Africa to help monitor endangered species. During my volunteering I met the founders of Wild Tomorrow Fund and now also help with fund raising for this very worthwhile cause.

Please help us by donating and hopefully we'll raise enough to win the $10,000! 

Note for UK donors - donations can be made in GBP via Crowdrise

The Story:

*** Each and every donation you make over $25 enters you in the draw to win a GoPro Session camera worth £200! ***

Dear supporters, every so often we have the chance to make a momentous impact. That chance is right now.

We are thrilled to take part in this Flash Challenge starting Tuesday July 12th and ending Tuesdya July 19th. We have exactly seven days to raise more money than the other organizations in the challenge. If we win, CrowdRise will donate an extra $10,000 on top of the money we raise!

WHY WE ARE FIGHTING

As you may know, many species including elephants, rhinos and lions are in desperate trouble due to illegal poaching, trophy hunting and habitat loss. If they have any kind of future they need our help now.

Wild Tomorrow Fund works with multiple reserves in South Africa where these beautiful animals live.

Will you help us by donating today? Every single dollar pushes us closer to the $10,000 grand prize.

As an added bonus for your generosity, GoPro has joined the challenge! Each and every donation you make over $25 enters you in the draw to win a GoPro Session camera worth $200!
