Most Globalteer volunteers don’t give up the good work once they have finished their volunteer placements with one of our community or wildlife projects. In fact, so many go on to achieve such great fundraising success that we have created a Globalteer volunteers’ fundraising hall of fame on our website.
It’s only in its infancy but we already have four inspiring stories of how Globalteer’s fantastic volunteers have raised thousands of pounds and dollars for their chosen projects.
You can read about Christine McAllen who raised hundreds of pounds for Picaflor House, our community project in Cusco, Peru, by selling cakes, books and furniture; Clare Trevethan (pictured, far left) who helped raise nearly $3,000 for our Cambodia community project by doing a half marathon in deep snow, and the children of Kettlethorpe High School in the UK who raised enough money to pay for an amazing new playground at Picaflor House.
It's so easy...
The really great thing about their stories is that the ideas are so simple that quite literally, anyone could do them - you don’t have to climb Kilimanjaro, hike the Australian outback in a kangaroo suit or swim across the English channel to raise lots of very welcome funds for our projects – you just need the desire to help - and we know all of our volunteers have plenty of that!
If you have undertaken fundraising activity on behalf of a Globalteer project and would like to share your story with others who can be inspired by your great work, please drop us a line at email@example.com, with a brief outline of what you did and how much you raised. We won’t be able to post every story but we’ll do our best!
