Charity Battle 2021 FAQ

What is the Wild Green Charity Battle?

 

The Wild Green Charity Battle is an annual conservation fundraiser organized by Wild Green Future and hosted in the Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends Facebook group. Group members divide into nature themed gangs based on their favorite ecological interests and compete to see which gang can raise the most money for conservation and win the Charity Battle. 

 

When (and where) is the Wild Green Charity Battle?

 

The Voting Round to decide the five starting gangs is November 27th - 30th in the Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends Facebook group. The Fundraising Round is November 30th (Giving Tuesday) - December 15th.

 

What organizations do the donations support? Does my gang choice determine where the funding will go? 

 

This year’s conservation partners are Palouse Land Trust, Urban Rivers, and Current Problems (read about the individual organizations here). Regardless of which gangs you choose, the donations will go towards the same causes. Gangs are not themed or based on the conservation projects (i.e. a donation to Bird Gang doesn’t go to a bird conservation group), but are instead a fun way for passionate nature fans to compete. You can learn about what last year’s Charity Battle is currently funding here.  


 

How do I join a gang?


You can join a gang simply by deciding you like it, and posting and commenting about it in the group!

How do I donate to receive stickers and help my gang win?


To help your gang win, you can make a donation in that gang’s name (the way to do this will be obvious when donations open on Monday).

Donations with a sticker begin at $10 USD, and donations without a sticker begin at $5 USD.

If you aren’t in a place to donate, you can help by creating and posting gang memes to get potential donors excited about your gang.

Can I support several gangs?

You can donate as many times as you like to support several gangs and receive several stickers.

When do stickers ship?

Stickers and thank you cards have to be ordered and mailed after the battle, and will be shipped by May 2022 (if you expect your address to change before then, contact us at: charitybattleaddresschange AT gmail.com).

 

Can I still make my own gang after the voting round ends?

 

Once a day, there will be an option at to create an additional gang. Only one gang will be available a day, and the minimum donation required doubles each day, starting at $1. If you choose to create a gang, make sure it fits all the guidelines. We will email you after your donation to find out what your gang is and have your design online within 24 hours of your reply.

Is it even possible to beat Trash Mob?

 

Not with that attitude.
