Travelling and volunteering are unique once in a life time experiences. We joined FundMyTravel because we want to make these experiences accessible for everyone, no matter the financial background. Please help our participants reaching their goals!
Viva Tanzania is a German-Tanzanian NGO founded in 2015 in order to support social projects in need in Arusha, North Tanzania. We think that there may be no better way to experience a country than volunteering. It provides you with a more authentic look into everyday life and allows you to immerse yourself into the culture. At Viva Tanzania, we have 14 different projects for you to choose from whether you want to work in projects created to support education, health, women & youth empowerment and animal & environmental welfare and gain experience that will be valuable to you for the rest of your life.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Viva Tanzania 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.
