“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”

Help Wanted: Volunteers Needed!

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Earth Defender for House On Fire! Our campaigns would not be possible without the vital day-to-day efforts of our many volunteers.

The House On Fire Reforestation Earth Defender (RED) program is hard work, and is not for everyone or for every House On Fire supporter. It requires commitment, initiative, sacrifice and a willingness to go above and beyond. Fulfilling the role of a RED is a big responsibility. It requires extensive interaction with the general public, event set-up and breakdown, and often times, long hours.  Helping to conserve, protect, and defend forest life requires time, dedication and passion and most importantly the readiness to show up and promote our mission through public awareness.

RED volunteers are an essential part of ensuring funding for House On Fire campaigns and carrying House On Fire’s mission to the general public. Our campaign leaders, our directors and other staff cannot be everywhere at once, so RED help bring House On Fire’s important message to as many corners of the World as we can. RED arrange participation in events, help to manage and transport our merchandise and informational materials, and interact with the public. Without funding and public awareness, House On Fire cannot do the work that we do. We are wholly funded by donations, not corporate sponsors or political interest groups. Our vested interest is in the welfare and preservation of forests and wildlife. There is no other group or movement like House On Fire and our team RED must reflect that uniqueness in the effort that they put into our Reforestation Earth Defender program.

The below are just a few of the things you can do as a RED to support House On Fire’s mission:

  • Table at a local event, expo, festival or create your own tabling event
  • Hold a benefit for House On Fire at a local restaurant, pub or community meeting place
  • Organize beach and other environment clean-ups
  • Host a concert for House On Fire
  • Cultivate public awareness through distribution of House On Fire materials and giving presentations at schools and community forums
  • Host a House On Fire party at home for friends and family
  • Provide valuable skills like graphic design work, photography or donate art for auctions
