Support Needed for Walkatjurra Walkabout

 

Can’t walk this year, but want to help?  We would like to give you the chance to help us eat, walk & support the elders, Rangers, children and families who will be walking with us.


$10        sponsor 1 walker for 2 days

$20        sponsor 1 walker for 4 days

$50        sponsor 1 walker for 10 days

$100      sponsor 1 walker for 20 days

$150      sponsor 1 walker for the whole walk

$300      sponsor 2 walkers for the whole trip – its nicer to walk with someone!

$600      sponsor 4 walkers for the whole trip – the more the merrier!

$1200    ok, you get the drift – feel free to take this as exponentially as you like from here! 

 

What does this mean? Walkers will be forfeiting a months pay to be out in the desert in support of this cause. The money you contribute may go towards any of the following: snacks and food, care and maintenance of support vehicles, petrol costs, hire of bus to get people to the start of the walk, support of Wangkatja elders and families to join us, band-aids and first aid (just think blisters), media and communications … your money could go towards that box of super yummy trail mix that makes that last 5km of the day so much easier!

How to do it? just donate the figure of your choice into the following account. If you would like your donation to be made public then just tell the person who emailed this and we will all be thinking warmly of you while walking! It’s easy!

more info please…? The Walkatjurra Walkabout is a non-violent direct action that plays an important role in the broader environmental and Aboriginal sovereignty movements.  It is a partnership to share knowledge, culture and environmental awareness in a campaign supporting the sovereign rights of Aboriginal people to protect their lands and support a nuclear free future. Give as generously as you can so that we can continue supporting this fabulous grassroots awareness raising initiative and action based campaign in solidarity with Aboriginal people to ban uranium mining in W.A. and to continue the tradition of walking for country.
