Have you got a passion for the Tarkine?
Want to help see it saved?
Looking for a way to help?
If you answered yes to these three questions, then the next question is for you;
Could you raise $250 to help Save the Tarkine? Maybe raise $500? How about $1000?.
Save the Tarkine is currently engaged in a Federal Court appeal challenging to the Commonwealth approval of the destructive Riley Creek iron ore strip mine proposed for the Tarkine.
The Federal Court is expensive, but it has the power to overturn Ministerial decisions. The case is already underway and we urgently need to raise funds urgently to cover our legal costs.
We know we’ve already asked our supporters to donate many times in the past year, and so we are hoping that this new initiative will take the fundraising wider (and give your pocket a rest).
Tarkine Heroes are people just like you who commit to raising funds for Save the Tarkine. You don’t need superpowers or a cape. And you won’t need to wear your underwear on the outside (although we won’t think less of you if you do).
And there are many ways that you could raise money, like:
- A dinner party or bbq
- A showing of Brent Melton’s film Tarkine, Saving the last of Gondwana
- A stall in your local shopping centre
- An appeal to your email or social media contacts.
- Any other legal fundraising ideas
Save the Tarkine can supply:
- Tarkine images and campaign materials,
- fundraising support,
- a paymate link to process payments from credit cards (directly to Save the Tarkine),
- tax deductability for gifts over $2 in Australia,
- public liability insurance coverage for events (where registered with Save the Tarkine),
- secret access to our Tarkine Hero lair (or as we call it “the office”)
To get involved, simply choose what level of Tarkine Hero you could commit to:
- $250 – Leatherwood – ‘Show me the honey’. At this level you commit to aim for a target of $250
- $500 – Sassafras – Found only in the ‘cool’ forests. At this level you commit to aim for a target of $500
- $1000 – Myrtle – The giants of the Tarkine rainforests. At this level you commit to aim for a target of $1000
