In partnership with our environmental arm, Help the Planet, we have put together a fundraising program that allows schools to raise much needed funds while helping the environment at the same time.

Looking for a fundraiser that:

  • Is simple and easy to run.
  • Can raise great money for your school, kindergarten or association with no upfront costs.
  • Helps in the fight against climate change.

Then why not organise a Help the Planet fundraiser.

Your students/members will be selling bookmarks. For every bookmark sold, one tree will be planted on your behalf as part of our Trees for Change project.

Your school/organisation keeps the profit margin on the sale of the bookmarks. It's that simple.

Planting trees is one of the single most effective things you can do in the fight against climate change. On average a tree will take one ton of carbon out of the atmosphere during its lifetime. Trees and forests also play vital roles in providing habitat for native species, preventing soil degradation and can provide income for local communities.

Here's how it works

  1. We provide you with an agreed amount of Help the Planet bookmarks – there are no upfront charges and all unsold items can be returned
  2. The bookmarks are not only useful and attractive, but on the back of each are simple steps that you can take to help reduce your carbon footprint.
  3. For each bookmark sold Help the Planet will have one tree planted or a seedling purchased on your behalf via one of our major tree planting partners.
  4. The cost to you for each book mark sold is $2.10, so we recommend you sell the book marks for $3 each – this way you keep 30% of the money raised.
  5. We also provide you with coordinators kit, containing pro forma letters, tally sheets, publicity materials, tips and guidelines – all the things you need to make your fundraiser as simple and successful as possible.

At the end of the fundraiser, simply return the unsold bookmarks to us and tell us how many you've sold. We will invoice the school/organisation, and you hold onto the profits.

Our aim is to provide you with an easy to run fundraising drive that can make great money for your school/organisation while at the same time helping in the fight against climate change. What could be better than that?

We hope you'll take up this great opportunity to raise funds and help the planet at the same time. It's also a great way to educate your students/members about the effects of climate change and what they can do to help.
