We are Projeto Gea – a movement for a better planet – and we are here to ask your help to improve our equipment for our campaigns.
What is Projeto Gea?
Projeto Gea is a volunteering movement created by a Greek-Portuguese couple. We wanted to create a tradition that had meaning and could have fun with. So, on Christmas day of 2019, the project officially started. After that, we have been doing clean-up campaigns in neighbourhoods and public places.
Our purpose is to show that individual actions can make a huge difference. There is no need to wait for an event of voluntarism to help the environment. Everyone can do it, whenever and wherever they want. Basically, we want to demonstrate that the results for a better planet can also arise from the aggregation of individual actions.
In 2020, we started dedicating more time to our project due to the pandemic. We started our Sunday Funday campaigns, devoting our time to specific areas. Gradually, people started interacting with us, and soon, started joining us in our campaigns.
Why are we creating this fundraising?
The purpose of this fundraising is to get more and better equipment for our campaigns.
We are looking for better-quality tools like more resistant gloves and trash pickers. Plus, we want to avoid the use of plastic bags to collect the trash and replace them with resistant and reusable bags.
Ultimately, we would like to create personalised clothing so people would easily recognise our movement. This would help us to raise awareness for our campaigns and especially for the problem of pollution and trash disposal.
The equipment we would like to purchase with your help:
- Resistant and reusable gloves (for us and for people that join our campaigns);
- Trash pickers;
- Resistant and reusable bags;
- Clothing to use during our activities.
