Forumtriathletes: Triathlon

on 24 Sep 2011 in Hever Castle

12 of us are doing a triathlon on 24th September and we would like you all to support us by making your lives more sustainable.

We all either work for Forum for the Future, a sustainable development charity, or are passionate about sustainability so this is a great way for you to support us!

You are also welcome to come along and cheer us on!

Yes, I'm asking you to sponsor me... But no, I'm not asking you to give me your change: I'm asking you to create change.

All you need to do is follow the instructions on the right, browse the DoActions and find one (or more) that suits you, then make your pledge(s).

Some will be really easy, others take a bit more effort. But they've all got an environmental focus and the currency is CO2 - The DoNation calculates these savings and donates them to me, publishing your pledges here on my page.

You only pledge to do your chosen action for two months and all the information you need is provided here on The DoNation, making it really easy to complete. At the end of the two months you'll be asked how you got on, and at that point your donation is confirmed.

So please, get doing!

Thank you!
