 MAKING A REAL

Seize your opportunity to be a Champion Fundraiser, competing with other teams around the world in the "Ugly Veg Olympics". 

They call it

"the tastiest competition on the internet"...

...but what are the Ugly Veg Olympics?

The Ugly Veg Olympics is Eat United's main fundraising campaign 2018-2019.

 

The aim is to enable families in Managua, Nicaragua to access healthy food while diverting fresh products from waste.

By becoming a Champion Fundraiser, you will learn how to motivate your network through fundraising activities, and take on "dares" that raise awareness for Sustainable Developement Goals 2 and 12:

Food Security

Sustainable Production

Everybody deserves access to nutritious food.

Why waste food when we can share it?

HOW TO PLAY

The Ugly Veg Olympics is a competition between various teams, in which each team completes fundraising and awareness-raising "challenges" in order to win Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals.

 

The aim of each team is to collect as many medals as possible in order to stand a chance of winning a Prize.

BRONZE MEDALS:

Teams gain Bronze Medals by completing the following challenges:

1. Sign up your team.

2. Fill in your team's "fundraising page".

3. Complete a video-call Training Session with Eat United to prepare fundraising and awareness-raising challenges.

Awareness-Raising Challenges

Each challenge you complete wins your team a Silver Medal.

AIM: 5 Silver Medals

GOLD MEDALS:

Teams gain Gold Medals by  reaching fundraising milestones.

Teams raise funds by carrying out Fundraising Activities. You will be guided through choosing and planning your Activities by the Eat United team, through a "Guide to Fundraising" booklet and the Training Session team video-call.

U$100, U$300, U$600, U$1000,
