To celebrate us reaching 30,000 followers on Instagram and also to give a little something back for all the amazing support we have received over the last 5 years, we are holding a charity raffle. We wanted to help raise funds for a much needed cause and also one that might not be as well known as some others.
We have sought advice from experts in the field to decide where your donations will make the most impact right now. And we've chosen the charity; Virunga.
Virunga is Africa's largest biologically diverse National Park, which has suffered greatly from the the last 20 years of war. Virunga National Park employs 700 men and women who risk their lives daily to protect the wildlife within the park, which includes the last of the worlds Mountain Gorillas.
Along side its conservation efforts, Virunga is also committed to supporting its local communities. Through the responsible harnessing of the parks resources, they hope to be able to create new opportunities for the 4 million people who live within a days walk of its borders.
On April 25th 2020, 12 Virunga Park Rangers lost their lives after an assault by armed rebel groups involved in poaching and illegal charcoal production. This is one of many reasons we have chosen to support this amazing cause, and these amazing people.
The raffle will run from 6pm Sunday 20th Aug - 6pm Sunday 6th Sept. The winners will be drawn at 7pm via a random number generator and will be streamed via IG Live. We have 29 prizes available, and will draw 29 winning numbers. The first number will win prize #1, the second #2 and so on.
Winning numbers and names are listed below with the prize they will receive. Keep an eye out for an email from us so we can arrange getting your prize to you. Thank you to everyone that took part and to the amazingly talented artists that donated the gifts. You guys are awesome!
