The Fundraising Elite


Things are heating up. I have to keep going outside and stand in the cold February air to rid myself of my excitement rash. There’s one month until the prize draw to win a trip to Peru with us, Cool Earth.

It’s the final stretch to get yourself in to the Top 10 for the draw on March 31st There’s as little as £100 between making it or not for some of you - it’s that close. The team chosen at random will get the trip to Peru and the other top 9 teams will get free entry to another Adventure. So fight, fight to the death. It really is worth it. (More info about the trip at the bottom of this post.)

The Top 30 Teams (or as I prefer to call you – The Elite) are listed in fundraising order below. We’ll be updating this over the next few weeks just to help give it a bit of panache.

The What?

This is a once in a lifetime trip to remote indigenous tribes in the heart of Peru’s Amazonian rainforest. And yes, whilst a trip of this nature entails some unpleasantness (insect bites, diarrhoea, bad food, no showers, no cold beer, no electricity let alone wifi) it’s also pretty mind-blowing. You’ll be hosted by the Ashaninka – who live and rely upon their forest for everything. You’ll see first hand our project to help save the Ashaninka’s rainforest – from trekking to remote villages, attending community meetings that decide on the forest’s future, to cooking up local forest food with your Ashaninka hosts. This trip will do it all.
