You don’t have $100/£65 + to spare? That’s all good too…because every penny and cent will help us. OK, it won’t get you one of Jason’s prints but every single person who donates, even with $25 USD/£16 GBP, will have their name, and your company website (if you have one) linked, added to the blogroll list of thanks and all on our other social media sites (such as Twitter & FB).
PLUS, PLUS, PLUS each and every donor, regardless of whether its $25/£16 or $1500/£970, will get the following:
Your name, or company name/website, written (in BOLD) on a piece of card, wood, fabric, the canoe paddles, if it comes to it – basically, whatever raw materials we can find when we’re down in West Africa!
One of the expedition team will hold up the banner and a photograph will be taken – whether we are in the Fouta Djallon highlands or paddling through hippo-abundant waters Niokolo Koba National Park, Senegal, or standing on the historical Kunta Kinteh Island, in The Gambia – said photo will be posted onto the blog, twit-pic’d, Facebooked, Tumblr’d – the lot! (If you prefer not to be social media’ed, then that’s cool too – just let us know when you donate).
Something that looks like this: this could be your name/company name on this banner
