To make your fundraising efforts more effective, and efficient, it is important to create a budget for what you will need before, during and after you travel on your Greenheart Travel program. Many times we might just consider saving for a program fee, or plane ticket, but there are other costs that can sneak up on a traveler. Outline the cost of your backpack, program fee, flight, any food you will have to buy or excursions you are hoping to go on and even souvenirs you are planning on purchasing. By having a grasp on what you will realistically spend during your trip, you can save and fundraise much more effectively. Not to mention have a realistic idea of how long you will need to meet your goals.
