The organisations matched each dollar raised by IGS, totalling the following “rainforest counter” amounts:
BraidsOn campaign: $1,550 raised, matched $1 for $1, taking the total to $3,100
Half Cut campaign: $5,613 raised, matched $1 for $1, taking the total to $11,226
On the day of the event, IGS raised $1,416.35 in donations, which after being matched by Half Cut and BraidsOn, will amount to $2,832.70.
The combined $17,158.70 raised will helped protect thousands of acres of rainforest globally.
This is a remarkable effort from all who took part in the live shaving and braiding on the day of the event, as well as the fundraising efforts in the lead up to the event.
Sustainable Futures is also now officially “Top of the Canopy” for 2018 Half Cut campaigns.
An uplifting campaign lead by inspiring students who strive to make a difference in the world.
