We know that the youth of today are the future of the planet’s environmental sustainability and we need their help. That’s why Rainforest Trust partnered with Funds2Orgs, the leading shoe drive fundraising social enterprise on the planet. Together, we’re encouraging schools, universities, scout troops, and youth groups to lead a rainforest fundraiser in their communities.
What is a rainforest fundraiser?
When you sign up to do a fundraiser with us, you will lead a shoe drive. You’ll also join the movement for change to help preserve our planet, making you a community leader for sustainability! All you have to do is collect gently worn, used and new shoes and Funds2Orgs will pick them up. When you finish your drive, Funds2Orgs issues a check to Rainforest Trust in your name, allowing us to continue our vital work.
What’s more, the shoes given to a rainforest fundraiser make an even greater global impact. Funds2Orgs ships the footwear to more than 4,000 micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries for small businesses to give to their communities. Your rainforest fundraiser helps the planet, endangered animals and people in need.
