THE STORY:

My oldest and dearest friend John has decided to do something to make a difference. He founded Wild Fund Tomorrow to help protect some of the planets most endangered animals and the habitat they live in. He's asked for my help to raise much needed funds and win a Fundraising challenge so I'm asking my friends to help too. So here's the deal. If you, my friends and family, help me hit at least £500 of donations between 12 July and 19 July (the closing date) I will pledge that no meat, no fish or even any alcohol will pass my lips from 20 July until the end of the month, that's 12 days. Now you know how hard that's going to be for a committed meat eating and thirsty chap such as I...

More about the challenge below

Wild Tomorrow Fund wrote -

Wild Tomorrow Fund is excited to be taking part in this One Week Flash Challenge against 20 other charities. If we raise the most at the end of the week, Crowdrise will give us $10,000! That's on top of the money that we raise! An awful lot of money to keep wild animals from harms way.

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. The people on the ground responsible for protecting them simply don't have adequate supplies and equipment. They need items that include ranger uniforms, binoculars, camera traps, and two-way radios. Through generous people like you we're able to purchase these items making their lives easier and the animals lives safer.

We also work to increase the size of wild spaces so animals have a better chance of long-term survival. More and more people on the planet means less and less space for wild animals. We want to change this and use funding to purchase beautiful wild spaces.

What we can tell you here is just the tip of the iceberg. Here's a link to our website if you'd like to learn more about who we are and what we do. www.wildtomorrowfund.org

We hope you'll help us win this week long challenge. Can you imagine how many animals we could protect with that 10,000 prize?

HOW YOUR GIFT WILL BE USED

Here are some of the invaluable items and services that your gift can pay for: -


$25 will pay for equipment that includes:-

- Binoculars for Rangers on Patrol
- Water Bottles for Rangers on Patrol
- Flashlights (torches) for Anti-poaching Units


$50 will pay for equipment that includes:-

- Anti-Poaching Ranger Uniform
- Leatherman for Rangers in the Field
- Anti-Poaching Ranger Boots


$100 will pay for equipment that includes:-

- Camera Trap
To get sightings of secretive and shy animals.

- Food for orphaned animals 
When females have been killed by poachers their babies are often found wandering alone. Ecolosists capture and care for them until they are old enough to be returned to the wild. 


$200 will pay for services that include:-

- Emergency Vet Visit
Many times animals are found injured and need immediate veterinary care to stand a chance of survival.

- School Children Visit to Reserve
Most children living around reserves have never had the opportunity to see wildlife up close. If they understand the issues surrounding animals they will be more likely to protect them when they become adults.


$200 will pay for equipment that includes:-

- Lion, Wild dog, or Hyeana collar
By attaching radio collars to animals ecologists are able to locate them and make sure they’re safe.


$400 will pay for conservation exercises that include:-

- Half an Acre of Wild Land
Wild Tomorrow Fund is purchasing a piece of land that otherwise would have been lost to wildlife forever. It is 1254 acres, has many wild animals including leopards, zebra, hyeana, crocodiles and hippos. Your donation will ensure these animals have a home forever.


$500 will pay for conservation exercises that include:-

- Rhino Dehorning
Dehorning is a way to protect the rhino before the poachers gets to them.  This amount pays for helicopter time and vet fees.

- Emergency Response
When elephants, rhinos, lions, or wild dogs break out of the reserves they must be captured and returned as soon as possible. Not everyone cares about wildlife like we do and they will not hesitate to eliminate them.

 

$500 will pay for equipment that includes:-

- Computer for Ecologists
To track and plot animal movemements by the manager and ecologist.
 


$1,000 will pay for conservation exercises that include:-

- Entire Day of Helicopter Time & Vet Fees 
During this day multiple elephants or rhinos can be worked on.


$15,000 will pay for:-

- Salary of an Ecologist
The ecologist performs vital conservation programs on the ground in South Africa. You’ll get to have a one-on-one relationship with them. They’ll update you every month via skype and/or email on the progress of their work. If you would like more information on this work please reach out to me at 917 952 3922 or email me at john@wildtomorrowfund.org.
