Thanks to everyone who supported The Samburu Project to...
Kiss a Giraffe on a Life-Changing Safari in Kenya
Congratulations to our winner!
what you'll do
What’s better than enjoying a leisurely breakfast at an exclusive boutique hotel among 140 acres of indigenous forest in Nairobi? All that, plus a giraffe’s head popping in the window looking to enjoy breakfast with you! And that’s still only the beginning. You and a friend (human, not your new giraffe bud) will explore the magic of Kenya’s incredible wildlife and rich Samburu culture on a tailor-made safari just for you by The Safari Collection. You’ll befriend baby elephants and learn about conservation at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You’ll soak in mind-blowing views of the Samburu region from a helicopter tour. And that giraffe kiss we mentioned? Make sure to pucker up at feeding time (put food in your mouth and they'll kiss you for it)! Flights (to Kenya and domestic transfers), meals and accommodations at Giraffe Manor and Sasaab included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
who you'll help
The Samburu Project’s (TSP) mission is to provide access to clean water and continue to support well communities with initiatives that promote health, education, women’s empowerment and general well-being. Samburu women and girls walk up to 12 miles every day looking for water. Since TSP’s founding in 2005, they’ve drilled over 109 wells in Samburu, Kenya, providing drinking water for 100,000 people. Having a local source has led waterborne diseases to greatly decline, education for girls to double and allowed women to start micro-businesses and gardening projects.

At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.
Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the charity. The nonprofit can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*Omaze also invests in securing the prizes for the typical Omaze Owned campaign, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is passed directly through to CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated charity. If there are multiple charities, then grants of equal share are made to each charity. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you (Omaze Owned campaigns require more significant marketing efforts by Omaze and do not rely (or rely to a much smaller degree) on the work and name of celebrities to help raise awareness and promote the campaign). The remaining 15 cents of your dollar goes to Omaze—it’s used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.
The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
