Terra Peninsular joins the #GivingTuesday movement 2016

Tiempo de lectura | Reading time: 4 minutos

Terra Peninsular’s year-end fundraising campaign called CUIDANDO LA CASA will be from November 29 to December 31. This year our goal is to raise $ 3,000 dollars in order to fund our conservation projects in San Quintín Bay, Baja California.

Our campaign in English means “protecting our home” and it coincides with #GivingTuesday, a global movement that each year wants to encourage and multiply the good deeds of the people.

This year #GivingTuesday will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 29.

And this year, the HIPGive organization will celebrate #GivingTuesday with the contest #LatinosGive, and Terra Peninsular will participate for the first time!

With a fund of $ 20,000 dollars, HIPGive will double the contributions of all the associations in Latin America that are participating in this contest.

Once the $ 20,000 fund is distributed, Terra Peninsular and the rest of the participants can continue receiving gifts, although they will no longer be doubled.

The contest will start on Monday, November 28 at 9:00 p.m. (PST) and it will end on Tuesday, November 29 at midnight. Donors are invited to contribute little after 9:00pm to have more opportunities to double their gifts and support Terra Peninsular!

Find the project of Terra Peninsular at www.hipgive.org and make your gift with your credit card! All the gifts we receive will be displayed.

Regardless of however small or large the contribution could be, your gifts are very important and will certainly be of great help to Terra Peninsular.

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a movement to inspire people to contribute to different causes at the beginning of the holiday season.

This global movement was created a few years ago and it’s the antidote to the consumerism promoted through events such as Black Friday.

Remember to use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to spread this movement on social media, and invite all citizens, families, organizations and companies to be part of this day of giving.


Why did we join HIPGive?

HIPGive is an organization that promotes the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations with annual contests in Latin American, where associations participate each year with their projects in order to double the contributions made by donors.

Therefore, the #LatinosGive contest is an opportunity for donors to double their gifts before the holiday seasons and help Terra Peninsular to fund different conservation projects in San Quintín Bay.

For more details, visit www.hipgive.org and find HIPGive on social media as @hipgive and the hashtags #LatinosGive, #GivingTuesday, #CuidandoLaCasa, #TerraPeninsular.

What will we do with your donation?

Either with our year-end campaign CUIDANDO LA CASA or the #LatinosGive contest, your gift will help to:

  • Cover the costs of park rangers in the nature reserves that we protect and manage in San Quintín Bay.
  • Acquire the resources to perform biological monitoring and surveillance of the nature reserves (gas, transportation, radio equipment, cameras, binoculars, etc.).
  • Organize workshops to promote the exchange of knowledge between Terra Peninsular and the communities.
  • Organize activities to involve local communities in conservation actions, such as the Bird Festival.

Join the giving season and be part of #GivingTuesday!
