Motivation

Ik ben 2 juni jarig en heb na twee maanden corona eigenlijk alleen maar knuffels nodig. Maar dat wordt 'm niet en verder hoef ik niks, en dus doen we 't maar zo: als je tóch graag een cadeautje geeft, dan mag je voor mij bijdragen aan de rebellie <3

Let's make 2021 count

The climate crisis rages on and politics lags behind. Governments need to work on much more ambitious climate policies. If not, we are heading for a warming of 3 degrees or more in 2100 with all the disastrous consequences. While Corona still holds us in its grip this is the moment to build a better world! Three cabinets of Rutte have taught us that the climate and ecological emergency has no priority and dangles somewhere at the bottom of the political programme. This has to change! We need to take action now, otherwise politics won't change. You can donate using this platform or by transferring to our bankaccount: NL86 SNSB 0783 1486 74 account holder: Stichting Vrienden van XR.


Your contribution makes a huge difference

Most of what we do relies on the generosity of donors. Because we are completely run by volunteers (who are working tirelessly), we have little overhead costs. This means your contribution is directly used for organising bigger and more impactful actions.


All donations are managed by our foundation ‘Stichting Vrienden van XR’, and are used to:

- Organize and promote all our actions

- Deliver more training, and grow larger

- Develop and expand our communications, online and offline


A few examples of what your donation means to us:

 

€25 = 1000 eco-flyers for a small action

€50  = 8 secure and encrypted email accounts (per month)

€150 = Cost of one introduction-talk venue with 10 to 30 potential new rebels

€250 = Three huge main banners used during our large actions

€500 = Monthly rent for a headquarters and art-crafting space

€1000 = Water, toilets and other amenities necessary, used during large actions

 

Every single donation, no matter how small, is vital and very much appreciated by us. By donating you help us act for you, for your children, for the planet.

Make this year count. Support the rebellion. The time is now.

Who we are

We are a diverse group of ordinary people who are deeply concerned about the ecological crisis. We're the fastest growing climate movement in history. In less than a year we have grown from a small group of people, to a competent and powerful movement in over sixty countries and a thousand cities.

 

What we do

We take creative, peaceful and sometimes disruptive non-violent direct action, to compel our government to take the necessary measures against the climate and ecological crisis. Why? Because history has shown time and time again that civil disobedience is a very effective way to bring about radical and fast-paced change.

 

Allocation of donations

The largest part of all donations goes to our actions, training, and communication.  

A few of our rebels who volunteer 100% of their time to the movement and hold key positions, receive a monthly volunteering compensation in order for them to make ends meet. These volunteers are necessary for organising our actions, contacting other organizations and other ‘behind the screen’ work. Of all the donations, 10% is transferred to Global Support, the international branch of Extinction Rebellion.
