Our Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to raise funds to help cover the costs of launching our Youth Environmental Ambassadors Program has ended and I want to convey a very, very big and heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our campaign with a donation. Regardless of the size of the donation, every one of them matters to us. And so we are grateful to each and every one of you for your support.
We didn’t reach our original goal which we knew was a really, really lofty one. But we put Plan B in place. And thanks to your support, with the money we raised, I (Shelley) will be on the arctic expedition this July, delivering our very first Youth Environmental Ambassadors Program.
I’ll be posting news about the upcoming expedition on my Biosphere Environmental Education website and here, on my Biosphere Blog. So be sure to tune in to see what’s happening. And when the expedition happens, I’ll be posting photos and stories about the adventure here on the blog.
In the meantime, I’ll be busy designing the details of the YEAP education modules as well as gathering needed equipment and getting lots of hours on my remote controlled quadcopter and rock crawler so that I’ll be ready to capture great video with them on the expedition.
We still have equipment we’ll need (SD and micro-SD cards for cameras, extra batteries, external microphone, to name a few) and so we’ll continue to fundraise until the expedition launch. We’ll be setting up a donate button on the Biosphere website. So be sure to pass on our info to people you know who would like to support such a great educational and environmental project. As always, we are SO grateful for all support we get!
Thanks again to everyone for their generous support.
All the best,
