The weekly Edge Pledge update is here. Welcome to Edge Pledge TV episode 30 where we take you deep into the world of a wildlife-fundraising platform and we unpack all we are doing as we try to end extinction with you and have some laughs along the way.
Landcare Australia have a list of schools who are into the environment so we are hitting them up and calling each of these schools.
We also have a piece coming out in the Junior Landcare newsletter
What schools need to do to sign up - Basically they just need to get comfortable with how this will work, think about how they can integrate it into their programs. Then we sign a fundraising agreement that our environment partners have all signed, setup a payment gateway so all funds go straight to them, load up their school on our system and it's all ready to go.
Isaac was one of the first people to get in touch when we launched, and we have been working together since to devise ways to get more attention for wildlife. We really believe that Isaac will be the face of wildlife conservation in Australia over the next few years and we feel honoured to have him as our ambassador.
We have reached out to Scouts Australia for example, as we believe this is a great alignement to their values and helps individual groups raise funds.
We have also reached out to Nature Play QLD and Kids Teaching Kids.
Please let us know oof any other group that gets kids out in the environment who would like to use this to raise funds for themselves as well
We want to use this to get their fololowers to support their proejcts, but also as a call to action for all Zoos in Australia to jump on board. e.g. Australia Zoo, Perth Zoo, Adelaide Zoo. If you know anyone working in Zoos, or any environment NFP, please let them know we'd love to work with them.
