What can I do?
There are many ways that you can fundraise for World Land Trust (WLT) and support global conservation.
From running a marathon to hosting a quiz night, or setting up a ‘Facebook Fundraiser’ to doing a sponsored event, with a little bit of imagination the possibilities are endless and there is something to suit everybody.
There are lots of ways to publicise your fundraising project. Start by telling your friends and family about it, and use social media to spread the word. Setting up a JustGiving page is a good way to announce your fundraising and keep track of donations.

Warriors of the Wild
Henry and Bea brave snowy runs to save 10 acres
To grasp the impact that siblings Henry and Bea have made this year for threatened habitats, a figure will suffice: 538%. That is, at the time of writing, how far they have gone in smashing their target to raise funds for WLT.
These self-styled ‘Warriors of the Wild’ braved a weather rollercoaster in February 2021 – pouring rain followed by unseasonal heat followed by snow flurries – as they hit the trails for weekly runs in support of our Buy an Acre programme. “During our snowy runs our favourite running route was like an ice rink,” they tell us. “It was hard to make ourselves go out in the freezing cold after being warm inside, doing Zoom home schooling.” Henry and Bea say they feel “really proud” to have come so far in their WLT challenge and so they should: they have raised enough funds to save 10 acres of land – a slice of tropical forests and all the life in it that will be protected, thanks to them, for generations to come.
Terezie and Eva’s virtual charity shop
“The local community is a great place to start”
Last year and with lockdown in full swing, Terezie Wickenden was struck by an idea as she watched charity shops close around the UK. What if the many people doing clear-outs had an online store to turn to, selling their unwanted items for all profits to go for a good cause? The Surbiton Virtual Charity Shop was born, and together with friend Eva Katona the duo saw interest for the initiative smash initial expectations: within less than one year, the shop has at the time of writing raised over £2,000 for our Buy an Acre programme from some 1,400 local members, and the flow of donations is not stopping.
To Terezie, the experience shows that those keen to do their bit for the natural world should start with their local community. “Find a local group, connect with other people, support and learn from each other. We may feel powerless as individuals but together, communities can achieve a lot,” she says.
