ABOUT WALK FOR WILDLIFE CAMPAIGN
------ x ------
During the month of January, Wildlife Waystation is launching a fun and exciting fitness campaign to raise funds, so lace up your shoes and burn off those holiday calories while helping Wildlife Waystation!

We’re aiming to challenge at least 150 people to walk or run 10,000 steps a day for 30 days and contribute $250 as a team or individual to Wildlife Waystation.

Let’s do the math! 10,000 steps a day x 30 days x 150 people totals 45,000,000 steps or 22,500 miles! We’re putting up a virtual map and aiming to lap the continental United States 2.5 times. In dollars, if 150 individuals or teams can raise $250 each, we can raise a grand total of $42,000* to help our animals!



We are raising funds to go towards a much-needed, 2500 gallon, used, diesel, midsize water truck. Wildlife Waystation does not have access to running water on or near the property. Our water needs to be trucked five miles up the mountain multiple times a day to meet our daily usage. We depend upon our water trucks to keep our animals hydrated and keep our facility clean!

*includes $30 registration fee for individuals/teams

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
------ x ------
WILDLIFE WAYSTATION INC.
Wildlife Waystation was founded in 1976 to rescue and provide permanent sanctuary for abandoned, abused or injured wild and exotic animals. Mission and Goals:


Internationally known, the Wildlife Waystation has accepted tigers from Ireland, lions from New Zealand and Canada, and a variety of animals from across the United States, as well as Southern California native wildlife. Every rescue was important and, often life-saving.

Over the years, thousands of native wildlife have been rehabilitated and successfully released back into their natural habitat. Thousands more, mostly exotics, have remained at our sanctuary. Here, they are well cared for by animal care staff, veterinarians and dedicated volunteers for the rest of their natural lives.

Wildlife Waystation is also the largest chimpanzee sanctuary in the Western United States. Most of the chimpanzees have come from biomedical research facilities.

Throughout the Waystation's history, educating the public has been a priority with a goal to preserve wildlife through understanding how to co-exist with native wildlife and why exotic animals do not make good pets. Through community programs, volunteers are available to speak to civic groups, scouts and schools. Wildlife Waystation continues this educational efforts by participating in community events throughout southern California.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------ x ------
What is Charity Footprints?

Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.

Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.

What is the campaign registration fee?

Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.

The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.

How can I create my fundraising page?

Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.

How will I track my distance?

You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.

If you workout indoors (treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike etc.), you can upload your workouts here.

How do I join a team on this campaign?

If your campaign has teams, you can see all the existing teams on campaign's home page. You can click "Join Team" button to register for the campaign with the selected team.

If you have already registered for the campaign but did not join a team at the time of registration, you can still join a team by clicking on the "Join Team" button on the home page. It will assign you the team and redirect you to your team page.

I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?

All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.

Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.

That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.

How do I change or switch my team?

If you have already joined a team, we do not allow switching of team as team's reports data is dependent on team's composition and changing team may affect a team's performance.

If you still want to change your team (like if you joined a team by mistake) or create your own team, please email us at support@charityfootprints.com and we will switch your team.
