The More the Merrier: Join our Crowdrise Team

We’re at 60% of our fundraising goal and are looking for 10 chimp champs to join our team to help get us to 100%! It’s really simple, takes less than 10 minutes and we’re asking each person to try and raise $400 through their friends, family and social networks.

And besides everyone on Facebook thinking you’re super cool, you’ll also be helping send kids to school while saving wild chimpanzees. And if that’s not enough, the first person to reach $400 will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card!

Here’s how you join #TeamChimpFriend:

1. Go to our Crowdrise campaign – Saving Bulindi Chimps

2. Click on the orange ‘JOIN THE TEAM’ in the middle right of the page next to the other team members:
3. Follow the quick steps to setting up a fundraiser in your name with a goal of $400 – because you are joining our team, all of the details and pictures will automatically transfer to your page.

4. Send an email out to all your friends, family & co-workers. Here’s a sample email you can use:

Dear Friends,

I’m helping to raise money for a great Crowdrise campaign sponsored by the non-profit Friends of Chimps. This is a 99% volunteer organization and they are currently raising $10,000 for a community-based project in Uganda that saves threatened chimpanzee habitat while also sending children to school. They are already at 60% of their goal and I’m working to raise $400 as part of #TeamChimpFriend to raise the remaining $4,000.


I know we are all inundated all the time with great causes so no pressure but if you do happen to have $5 or $10 bucks laying around, I’d be incredibly grateful for your donation. As a volunteer organization they rely on volunteers like me to help spread the word and raise support.


Thanks so much for your time and consideration and I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season.

5. Post to your social media with images from the Crowdrise page and be sure to include the link to your fundraising page and the tag: #TeamChimpFriend

6. Sit back, watch the donations pour in and bask in the glow of your great work!
