Patagonia Prize for Best Fundraising Team Member

24 Feb , 2016  

Wouldn’t it be cool to get $1,300 worth of brand new Patagonia gear AND help keep the Yellow Dog River protected? Yup, thought so. Join the effort to raise funds for the Yellow Dog River Community Forest by visiting our Crowdrise page and clicking Join the Team. You can sign up for your own fundraising page, customize it with photos, and share why you think establishing a protected area along the river would be a good idea. You will then be ready to roll and can start reaching out to your “crowd” for support. The whole idea of crowdsourcing is getting everyone involved and using your supporters network of friends and family to leverage support for important causes. The team member who raises the most by March 31 will get the goods. Our goal for crowdsource fundraising is $50,000! The gear package can be tailored to your interest and size! A huge thanks to Patagonia for always supporting our work!
