This is your opportunity to make meaningful action on climate change happen!
This May, we need you to help us achieve a social mandate for climate action in Australia.
In 2018 we hit a milestone as we reached over 6,000 people through meaningful face to face conversations on climate change. Our conversations are helping thousands of people understand the issue of climate change and find a way to take meaningful action.
But to be able to achieve the impact on the scale we need, we need to make sure that the government elected in May this year listens to us and acts on climate.
You are key in making that happen.
Our annual crowdfunder has been our main funding source until now. Last year over 100 fundraisers raised $165,000, and this year we're aiming to raise at least $180,000. An ambitious goal, we know, but we know we can do it with your help.
The funds raised through our crowdfunder will help us make sure we hold the next elected government accountable and lock in real climate commitment. We've seen climate promises from politicians before, and we've seen them waiver. We need to make sure that doesn't happen again.
Join our fundraising team and help us make sure our government commits to meaningful climate action long-term.
Not sure? Nervous?
That's normal, but the world won't change if we don't make it - and this is a really powerful way to make a difference. And we'll support you all the way. You'll be amazed how much you learn and grow through it. Have a listen to what last year's fundraisers have to say about their experience:
Last year over 100 people engaged their communities to raise a combined total of $166,000. Some raised $300, some $3000, or even more! Every bit helped. This year we're looking for 150 people to do their bit to enable our reach grow even further.
When you sign up, you’ll get your own fundraising page on our crowdfunding site. You can personalise it as much as you like, then set a fundraising goal and do whatever you like (as long as it is legal and not offensive) to reach it.
Last year people did everything from simply asking friends to donate to their page to cycling from Melbourne to Canberra! Lots of people did challenges and events (from simple movie nights to a Harry Potter Trivia Night) and others signed up to our wine drive, selling wine to friends and family.
Whatever you choose to do, we’ll support you with resources, tips, pep talks and by connecting you to an fantastic community of the people fundraising just like you.

We can't wait to have you on board!
