Green Life Volunteers is a local Costa Rican Volunteer Service Organization. We place volunteers in different projects throughout Costa Rica. Most of these projects are run by other non-profit organizations – and we provide them with "man-power", know-how, and donations. We particularly try to focus on conservation and development projects – and we place volunteers on projects which focus on research and protection of endangered species, such as sea turtles and monkeys! We also hope to improve sustainability and positive development in small communities of Costa Rica, by helping kids and adults to learn English (and other languages), and by promoting organic farming and reforestation!
Green Life Volunteers is a local small Costa Rican Volunteer Organization placing volunteers in different projects around Costa Rica. We particularly try to focus on conservation, sustainability, and development projects. • We don’t offer certain start dates or 2 week minimum periods. You can start volunteering when you like and for how long you like on most projects. • Our Projects support local, grassroots, non-profit organizations, which are in actual need of help. The weekly fee goes directly to the host families and the coordinators on the projects, which we support this way economically. • We have great projects which we found through many years of research and work in Costa Rica. The projects we collaborate with are in need of help and have years of experience with volunteers – which guarantees you to have a great time and an awesome experience.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Green Life Volunteers has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!
Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
