What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It all began at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City and, over the last nine years, has grown to become an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity!
Get ready to celebrate!
You may support conservation all year round, but for GivingTuesday, your donation will make you eligible to win some really cool stuff. From now until GivingTuesday, you have a chance to enter our 2022 GivingTuesday Raffle!
Buy one ticket for $10, five tickets for $45 or ten for $90. Your support will help us to continue to conserve reptiles, amphibians and the habitats they depend on, and every ticket you buy will give you a greater chance of being drawn for one or more of these fabulous raffle items.
So get your tickets, and in the meantime, follow us on social media as we bring you on a herping adventure – video footage with Orianne Society Researcher, Ben Stegenga and our very good friend, Noah Fields of NKFherping, who has generously partnered with us on this raffle by donating his time and multiple raffle items!
Each ticket gets you a chance to win any of the raffle items – you cannot purchase tickets for a specific item. Winners will be drawn at random, on GivingTuesday, November 29th. Items will be raffled off in the order they are listed below.

The Grand Prize - 2-Day Field Herping Trip for Two
This 2-day field experience will occur in early 2023 in South-Central Georgia. The raffle winner will join Dr. Chris Jenkins (Orianne Society CEO), Ben Stegenga (Orianne Society biologist), and Noah Fields (NKFherping) for a weekend of sandhill snake surveys and field herping on private conservation properties, including The Orianne Society’s Longleaf Stewardship Center. Daytime outings will focus on Eastern Indigo Snakes and Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnakes, but other sandhills species such as Gopher Tortoises, Eastern Coachwhips, Florida Pine Snakes, and Mole Skinks may also be encountered. Nighttime herping will focus on ephemeral wetland species, such as Eastern Tiger Salamanders, Ornate Chorus frogs, and Eastern Chicken Turtles.
The prize includes dinner for two and lodging for two, at The Orianne Society’s Longleaf Stewardship Center bunkhouse. The winner will be responsible for transportation to the location and food and beverages during the daytime outings.
This GivingTuesday, let’s do great things for the conservation of reptiles, amphibians, and critical habitats by supporting what you care about and entering for a chance to win great stuff!
