Many of our 2020 camp experiences have been postponed due to the Covid-19 virus. We look forward to continue the gatherings when it is safe to do so. Please check our website or subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates. We commend the efforts by so many of us to limit the spread of the virus and send deep thanks to the healthcare workers across the globe taking care of those most affected. We see our work of bringing balance back to ecosystems as more important than ever. Our team is busy building our organizational capacity during this time so that we can share the message of regenerative land management even further. We are grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you at camp in the future.

Ask friends and family to support

Personally approaching your friends and family to tell them how vital this work is now and how important it is that everyone gets involved is a highly effective way of increasing the resources available to restore ecosystems.

Why and how did you become involved with ERC?
What does ERC do? And why is it important to you?
Why is ERC different from other organizations?
What’s in it for your friends and family? (i.e. how does the gift benefit the life of the donor)

Here is an example of a message you can use

Dear {Insert first name here],

I would like to introduce to you an amazing organization that I have been following for quite a while now: Ecosystem Restoration Camps (ERC).

ERC restores natural ecosystems all over the world through its network of Camps.
What makes this organization so special to me is its participatory approach, which provides people like us with the opportunity to take direct action and make a real difference for our future on this beautiful planet.

In the future, I would love to join one of its camps to get my hands dirty, plant trees, heal the soil, increase biodiversity, sequester carbon and turn myself into a real eco-warrior! But for the moment, I am contributing to their mission with a small monthly donation.

I can assure you that your donation to ERC will go a long way in healing and restoring our beautiful planet.
You can become a member with less than the cost of your morning coffee, and you will join a global community of like-minded people, enjoy the members’ benefits, and contribute to building an abundant and biologically diverse earth!

Let’s restore the beautiful nature of our planet together!

Start a Birthday Fundraiser on Facebook

An easy way to make ecosystem restoration happen is to create a birthday fundraiser on Facebook.

For my upcoming birthday I decided to give this a try. It only took me about two minutes to create my page and begin my fundraiser.

To start, go to your profile homepage and click on the fundraiser tab in the lower left-hand corner. From here you can find Ecosystem Restoration Camps by typing our full name into the charity search box. Then follow the prompts given as you create your fundraising page by specifying your fundraising goal and adding an inspiring picture. Invite your friends and voila, your fundraiser is created! We have written a basic description of Ecosystem Restoration Camps or you can add your own story of why this work matters to you. Personal storytelling is how we reach people’s hearts and all of us have been brought to this work in powerful ways so your ERC story is important! Ask your friends to share your fundraising page so more people can see it. Thanking everyone who donates on the page in public comments can create fundraising momentum. And of course private thank you’s are wonderful too.

We would love to add people to our newsletter list who donate so they can continue their involvement. If they want to be added to our newsletter list please send us their email at members@ecosystemrestorationcamps.org. And get in touch also with any questions about Facebook fundraising for birthdays and other life events.

We thank you so much for your efforts to galvanise and expand this restoration movement together.

Here is the video showing the process of creating a Facebook Fundraiser

Do a Sponsored Event

A sponsored run, walk, dance, eating competition – whatever weird and wonderful challenge you’d like to set yourself in the name of ecosystem restoration can help bring in the resources we need. For an A-Z of fun ideas check-out this website.

Organise an event in your community 

Do you like organising events? Want to get to know your neighbours better? Then organising an event in your community is perfect for you. It’s a great way to reach more people outside your own friendship group, to bring your community together, and create buzz and fun around the positive solution that is ecosystem restoration! Have you thought of organising a neighbourhood street party, a community garage sale, a clothing swap, car wash, book sale? Or even get your local restaurants and cafes involved with a tip night – a portion of their tips to go to charity for one night!

How to transfer the money you raise to Ecosystem Restoration Camps

Simple! Either give your donors this link directly, or make a transfer from your own account to the same link here.
