WOW! Thank you so much to our generous donors! With your help, our team has so far raised $5,670 through UCLA Spark for our trip to Cameroon. This money allows us to purchase flights and obtain Visas! At the core of this funding, this gets us to Cameroon.
We are launching a second part to our funding campaign, and we need your help! Phase 2 will be funding our activities in-country. Our next goal is $8,000. This will allow up to pay for lodging, meals and incidentals, in-country travel, and other locally incurred costs in Cameroon. We will be traveling for nine days and our itinerary includes visits to the Crelicam ebony sawmill, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, the Congo Basin Institute, Higher Institute of Environmental Studies, World Agroforestry Centre, Civil Society, and a visit to an ebony producing community. By raising $10,000, we can extend our trip and spend more time with ebony producing communities in Cameroon, and potentially meet with government officials. This would be our ultimate goal and we believe that this will make the most impact.
We have come so far and we know as a team can make a positive impact in Cameroon. But we need your help! Please share with your friends, family, and colleagues the news of our project and fundraising campaign. You can do this by becoming an Ambassador for our team! You have played a vital role in our campaign by donating and we are looking for people to join our team! By becoming an Ambassador, you be signed up as a member of the team who can share a personalized link with your connections that tracks the number and amount of donations you bring in. The top 3 Ambassadors who raise the most money for the team will get a special gift from the team from Cameroon. If you are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact our project manager, Sarah, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, you mean the world to our team!
