Green Crew Launches Crowdfunding Site for Donations
By Joshua Berger, Director of Donations
As the Green Crew, our mission is to preserve, protect and restore our environment. We raise awareness by hosting adventures led by young passionate environmentalists. To perform these projects, we have established a crowdfunding donation platform.
We want to be completely transparent with our donors, so they fully understand where their donations go, which is why 100% of donations will go to the selected item. Rather than blindly donating money to an organization, our crowdfunding platform allows you, as a donor, to choose from a list of items the Green Crew needs. Depending on the donor’s priorities and preferences, you can choose from what they believe is most important.
Here at Green Crew, we understand that environmentalism can mean different things to different people; crowdfunding is an excellent way of incorporating choice into our donation process. No matter the item you select, we promise that every item on our catalog serves to make our adventures more productive, efficient, and influential. No matter the size of your donation, we are grateful because we know that every donation makes an impact.
To carry out our mission, we are constantly making an effort to purchase sustainable materials. On our crowdfunding page, you will notice that most materials are made from wood and metal instead of plastic. Sustainability is one of our pillars because it is what being an environmentalist is all about; in addition to focusing on the materials we use, we focus on where the materials come from. We prefer to purchase from local areas.
Finally, I want to emphasize that we prefer item donation over monetary donation since it aligns with our goal to use the things we have. If you have an item we need and are not using, we ask that you consider donating it.
