1. For which project is Floßrennen gathering donations for?
Floßrennen 2017 gathers donations for a nongovernmental organization called Viva con Agua (VcA).
This organization transfers the money without any cut-offs to water, sanitation and hygiene projects of the Welthungerhilfe, therefore supporting the quest of universal fresh water supply, access to sanitation facilities and hygiene workshops for people living in Uganda, Nepal, India and Ethiopia. For more information check out the column „About Viva con Agua“ or visit the „Homepage of Viva con Agua“ directly.
2. How do I donate for Viva con Agua?
You can support your raft crew by becoming a so called team sponsor, which can easily be done by clicking on the “Donate” button. Every cent of your donation will be forwarded to the WASH projects of the Welthungerhilfe and not to the participating team :) If you wish to attach a name and motivational comment to your donation, this is possible and the message will appear on the profile of your supported team.
3. Who can become a team sponsor?
Floßrennen is not about gathering a few big scale donations, it’s more about getting friends, family and daily acquaintances to support the work of Viva con Agua with small amounts if possible.
To get started, just click on the link on the page of your favorite team!
4. How does the process of donating work?
After you’ve decided to become a team sponsor, you will find a link to our project website on betterplace.org either by following the simple instructions on “Support your Team” or clicking on the button “donate” on your favorite teams profile. On our Betterplace-project-website you can enter the exact amount of donation and choose the method of payment. Our partner supports payment with credit card, PayPal and normal SEPA money transfers. Betterplace itself is a nonprofit initiative, which forwards donations without fees in the full amount to Viva con Agua after the race. If needed or wanted, Betterplace will fill out a form for the certification of your donation.
5. Which methods of payment are possible?
On the Betterplace website you can pay with credit card, Paypal or direct debit payment. Alternative there is of course always also the possibility of transferring the money directly to Viva con Agua.
