$10 raised = 1 bag of trash collected

We’re getting trash out of our waterways and raising money for Catawba Riverkeeper at the same time!

Participants in the Dirty Money Challenge will ask their friends and family to donate money to Catawba Riverkeeper and “make me pick up trash.”

For every $10 donated, the fundraiser will pledge to pick up one bag of trash. Example: $100 raised = 10 bags of trash

Important Dates:

  • Fundraising starts August 18. Build your fundraising page now!
  • The campaign will stay open until September 19 – World Cleanup Day.
  • Participants should aim to fulfill their litter pick-up pledge by October 3 – the day of Catawba Riversweep.

Trash picker-uppers can pick up trash anywhere – not just creeks, lakes, or rivers. When you pick up trash anywhere, you are keeping it from reaching our waterways. Out for walk? Bring a bag with you. Going jogging? Try plogging!
