OURF volunteers help gather signatures for petition campaignIf you have time to volunteer to help in the cause of orangutan survival, please contact us through VolunteerMatch.org or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

However, raising awareness where ever you live is always beneficial in the overall cause. By letting others know about the orangutan, its plight and what OURF is doing, they might feel compelled to help financially. Find an event such as Earthday, Conservation Week, or Orangutan Caring Week. Locate a venue such as a park, a school, library, shopping mall. Find some friends and sponsor a booth or table. It is easy to learn the basics. We can help you put together a display so you can tell the story and inspire others to take action.

 

We also need help in fundraising. If you want to help raise funds, there are many fun and enjoyable ways to do this. Consider the following possibilities and maybe you have ideas of your own: bake sale, car wash, sponsored sporting event (walk-a-thon, 5K run, golf, swimming, hiking), orangutan video-party, holiday party, birthday party, Karaoke night, and garage sale.  Hold a potluck and invite your friends. Ask them to bring a dish and contribute an amount that would be equal to what they might have spent had they gone out to dinner.

 

Finally, perhaps you know someone who should receive our brochure. You can download the OURF brochure. Or let us know and we can send it to them. Certainly, you can help by letting them know about our website.
