Meet Tammi, one of our incredible, passionate advocates and fundraisers. Read about her experience raising awareness and funds for The Adventure Project's programs, such as our Water Campaign.

How did you do it?
“I would love to take credit for it, but really it is just using the amazing tools that the Adventure Project Team creates for these campaigns.  I am so busy during the day, and the ability to cut and paste a link, or to use succinct language to explain how what we are doing is going to tangibly change the lives of real people.  That’s the kind of messaging that reaches me personally, so it’s great to have that at our fingertips!  Most of my friends who contributed towards the campaign appreciated being able to do it so easily, and it keeps them coming back!”What was your favorite part of the process?  Or what surprised you most?
“Wow, as crazy as it sounds, one of my favorite parts is hitting refresh on the computer when we’re on a deadline to raise a specific amount.  It’s almost addicting watching the numbers creep up and up as donations come trickling in, and knowing that every $550 means thousands of REAL lives are going to be changed.  It’s hard to put that feeling into words, but I do know that it has kept me up past my bedtime more than once!”

Why did you invest your time, talent and resources for the campaign?  What stirred your heart about it?
“Because I am tired of the widely held assumption that the world’s poorest people just want handouts.  It is a privilege to partner with an organization like The Adventure Project that gets it.  They get that basic tenet of ‘teach a man (or woman!!) to fish’ and they encourage the rest of us to get on board too.  I think most people that have grown up in Western privilege think that so many of the problems in the world are too big to solve, but campaigns like this, and like the stove campaign before it, show that is not the case.  It helps individuals who want to help but don’t know how to empower individuals who would like that little start-up push and don’t know where to get it.  Dignity and empowerment are the name of the game, and it is so much FUN to play!!!”

Each dollar of our campaign will be matched by The Prem Rawat Foundation. We have the potential to raise up to $50,000 by tomorrow. That means the hiring and training of 90 new mechanics who will supply clean water to over 450,000 people.

Sign up here to help make a huge splash tomorrow.

Nokia Social Innovation Lab

A few weeks ago, our co-founder Becky Straw was invited to speak in London at Nokia’s Social Innovation Lab. We know, she’s such a rockstar. (She’s also speaking at the UN today for International Women’s Day!)

Our partner KickStart named among “Top 100 Best NGOs”!

Last month, our partners at KickStart were listed in Forbe’s Impact 30.

We’re proud to announce them as a top NGO again — but this time in the renowned publication The Global Journal as one of the "Top 100 Best NGOs In The World." It is the first international NGO ranking of its kind, seeking to honor top organizations that exhibit “the power of a great idea, well-executed.”

KickStart was cited for “changing the way the world fights poverty by bringing together the transformative power of technology, the entrepreneurial spirit of the impoverished, and the sustainability of the marketplace and private sector.”

To support the amazing efforts of KickStart or to learn more about how they’re using technology and entrepreneurship to help eliminate poverty in Africa, visit The Adventure Project’s Hunger Program.
