How can you help?
1. Create a team! It couldn’t be easier. Spend 5 minutes creating a page on the Crowdrise site, then share with friends via social media. You can donate your birthday to a cause, run a marathon, or maybe you just want to help our team! It’s all online based, so you don’t have to host an event, talk to people, or even get off your couch. Need a perk? Create a team and raise $100 or more to be automatically entered in a monthly raffle for a Marmot gear package.
2. Donate! Maybe you love the outdoors, you have a special connection to India, or you’re just interested in our tour. It’s as simple as visiting our Crowdrise page, choosing one of our twelve partner organizations, and donating online.
3. Spread the word! We want to create one big network. You tell two people, they each tell two people, and suddenly seven people know about our objective! Share on twitter, facebook, pinterest, or send out an email blast to your friends and followers!
