Expedition Fund Raising Still Continues…

posted in: Fund Raising | 0

It’s now 3 months (September, October, November) since we returned back to Norway, from our summer Iceland Expedition.

However, we still have some debts to pay, to finalize our budget, and cover all our expedition costs.

 

We are still using Finn.no (Norwegian e-bay) as the main avenue for selling items, to continue raise funds, to cover these debts.

 

 

If you are interested to see what we have on offer for sale on Finn.no, please click the links below to each of our Finn.no Profiles:

Expedition Fund Raising Continues…

posted in: Fund Raising | 0

Now that we have returned from our 6 weeks adventure, and finalized our spending accounts, it is quite clear that additional / continuous fund raising is still required.

Having been to Iceland a number of times, and living in Norway, we thought we had a pretty good idea of how much we would probably spend during our trip (Expedition Budget).

However, we were quite alarmed at the extent of inflationary increase in costs of even the most basic of items, since our last expedition ICE2015.

 

 

In the 2 years since ICE2015, the cost of some basic items, such as regular food shopping, ice-creams, sandwiches, coffee & cakes, and camping accommodation,
has increased by as much as 2 or 3 times !!!!

This is a direct result of the dramatic increase in tourism, and the wish of shop-keepers, to make more and more money, whilst they can…

Therefore, we have somewhat overspent our “living allowance budget” and as such we need to continue to raise funds, to bridge this significant expenditure gap.

We will be once again using Finn.no (Norwegian e-bay) as the main avenue for selling items, to continue to raise funds.

Last Minute Appeal -Sponsorship & Donations

posted in: Fund Raising | 0

It’s only just over 1 week remaining, before we leave for Iceland !!!

 

We have most (essential) items that we need, but still lack a few important items, that we have not been able to acquire as yet.

Also, our sales via Finn, although constantly steady, have not produced as much return as we had really hoped for…..hitting our fuel budget.

If you would like to help us by purchasing something we still have for sale on Finn, please see:

Continuous Fund Raising Via Finn.no

posted in: Fund Raising | 0

ICE2017 Team members (especially Neil, Gunnar & Anja) are still individually selling many different items via Finn.no, in order to raise badly needed cash towards our expedition adventure.

The frequency of sales has been slow, but steady, throughout the last 18 months, but has not raised as much cash as originally hoped for
– a lot of items have been sold at very little cost to enable the sale, resulting in reduced returns.

It is hoped that sales frequency will begin to rise over the Summer period – hopefully we have something for sale that someone out there wants to buy….please take a look !!!
