Weʼve raised £30 to help save ElephantsWorld
- London Borough of Barnet, United Kingdom
- Funded on Saturday, 3rd December 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
ElephantsWorld is a sanctuary for rescued elephants, established in 2008, located in Thailand. Here, the elephants are given a wide open space in which to roam, and are carefully looked after by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
Unfortunately, the land on which ElephantsWorld is located is leased, and the owner now wants to sell the land. Moving is not an option, as it would be very hard on both the people working there and the animals themselves. Because of this, ElephantsWorld wants to buy the land, for which they require 12 million THB, or around 300.000 euro.
In order to help raise this money, we are taking part in a Tube Challenge - we will aim to navigate the entirety of the London Underground network (270 stations ranging from Chesham in the North and West, Morden in the South, and Upminster in the East) in one day. This is estimated to take around 18 hours and we'll be photographing and videoing the day. After the day, every penny donated on this page will go to the "Help Save ElephantsWorld" crowdfunder on GoFundMe, and any donations received after the day will also go to this excellent cause.
Please consider donating to help protect the elephants at ElephantsWorld!
(PS: If you're interested in joining us on a Tube Challenge and helping to raise some more money, please contact me - the more the merrier!)
(PPS: If you can't join us but would still like to help out with the logistics on the day, I will be trying to arrange food drops at certain stations throughout the day, so we don't end up starving :p - an update will be posted here about that shortly.)
