CHARITY PROJECT WORLD VISION

Reason why

Our adventure in the sky takes place over the Swiss Alps - the water reservoir of Europe.
Not everyone is as fortunate as we are. We want to help others in desperate need of water and pretty much everything else. That's why we support World Vision as our charity partner.

Project

Sustainability and green energy are the core missions of our exploration in the sky.

If mankind could solve the planets energy problems, we would be able to reverse some climate change effects in the future. Until then we have to support those in need. This is our obligation at the World Vision drought projects in Africa.

Support

If you like our adventure and its higher cause please support us and our charity partner World Vision. We will show you exactly where your money goes: into water related projects in Africa and in our exploration in the sky.
Join us now. Thank you very much for your support.


Fundraising Campaign Flying High - for Higher Impact: Our Air Exploration is Highlighting World Vision's Drought Projects in Africa

We need your support to take-off and to help children in need

You can make this event happen. And at the same time you can help children in need.

The background of our mission - sustainability

Since our exploration is based on a green energy storyline, we also want to add a higher sense to it. With World Vision we found a Charity Partner that shares the same goals and values as we do.
Their drought projects in Africa are directly linked to global warming and climate change effects. These are the core missions of our exploration in the sky. If we could find energy solutions in the higher atmosphere to solve our energy needs on the ground we could overcome the CO2 problems and effects on our climate. And this is exactly what we are looking for in the sky at our mission.


What is the goal of this fundraising campaign? 

With our exploration in the sky we want to raise awareness for green energy solutions and climate protection and therefore for children in desperate need of fresh drinking water due to radical climate change.  With your support we are aiming to raise a lot more money for World Vision's project in Africa than we spend for the jump to take-off.


The High Altitude Jump Budget
Our budget for the jump lies at aroud $40.000

We have to cover this budget on our own.

The Production Budget
We have to cover the production budget of $80.000 for this documentary.
BBC World News is on board as our broadcasting partner.
They reach more than 100 Mio. viewers in more than 200 countries per week.
BBC World News will broadcast the documentary once it is completed.
Since the BBC World News is BBC's commercially funded 24-hour international news channel, they can only embark on this project as the media partner if they can secure funding from a sponsor.
The sponsor is still to be found.

You may ask: Don't you daredevils have sponsors already anyway?
You are right, we do have great sponsors at our side.
FORMEX Swiss Watches is a young and independent family owned brand. They support our mission with a training budget for skydives, helmet and jumpsuit.
And EMS Emergency Medical Systems is supporting us in the field of oxygen supply.
We are grateful to get this support but it covers just around 10% of our total budget.

 

How can you support both - the sky exploration and the World Vision Project?
Our exploration will highlight World Vision's drought projects as well as potential green energy solutions of the future. If you like the combination of these ideas you can support our mission and the drought project at the same time.

*What is Foxtrail?

Foxtrail is a team experience for friends, clubs, companies and families in which the town becomes a playing field. In order to avoid losing track of the fox, the teams have to break codes and find hidden messages en route. But beware - it can be quite challenging. The clues are tricky and can only be solved through intelligence and team spirit.

The exciting chase takes you past some of the highlights and hitherto unexplored corners of the town. A novel way to (re) discover a Swiss town or region! Small groups of up to 18 participants can simply book their starting times on our website. With the help of the starting documents, teams (2-7 persons) can follow the trail at their own pace. And when you’re well and truly stumped, the helpline gets you back on track. The optional Swiss “apero” (Foxtrail Plus) following the finishing-line photo provides an opportunity for a cosy chat about your shared successes.

Foxtrail is ideal for team events, club and staff excursions, seminars, family expeditions, school trips, birthdays, hen and stag parties or simply a get-together with friends.

 

Familytrail Zurich / Bern / Basel

The Familytrail was developed in collaboration with World Vision Switzerland, a child-focused humanitarian organisation. The trail offers a playful way to show how children in developing countries can be helped. There are encrypted codes and puzzles to solve along the trail. Follow the tracks of development work through Zurich. A mysterious book shows you the way to a museum of cultural history, through beautiful city parks and a trendy restaurant. Are you ready for the challenge?
