'Make Your Dream Come True' Day - Competition Time!

'Make Your Dream Come True' Day - Competition Time!

Posted by Leanne Sturrock on 13th Jan 2017

‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ – Harriet Tubman

Today is ‘Make Your Dream Come True’ Day, and we at The Great Projects thought that this would be a brilliant time to announce a brand-new competition! We always hear from people on our social media pages how much they would love to get involved in our projects; to travel the world, and to make a difference to incredible wildlife inhabiting this earth. We pride ourselves on providing an array of incredible projects for volunteers to take part in, and we love opening the door of opportunity to altruists – so, we thought, why don’t we give our volunteers a bit of a boost towards starting their adventures?

Beginning tomorrow (Friday 13th January), we will be running a three-day competition where YOU can get a step ahead on your dream volunteer adventure! One lucky winner will be able to select their favourite trip out of all our projects, and we’ll cover the cost of their deposit – meaning you’ll be one step closer to realising your dream.

The rules are simple: share today's Facebook post, and comment underneath with the name of the project you’re wishing to join. The competition runs from Friday until midnight on Sunday, and on Monday morning we will randomly select the lucky winner's name, announcing the winner live on Facebook!

If you’re selected as the winner, you will be instructed to then contact us either by phone or by emailing [email protected], where we’ll be able to set up your booking, and help you towards taking that first step to realising your dream!

So what are you waiting for? https://www.facebook.com/thegreatprojects/ and get involved!
