SILENT AUCTION ADVENTURE
RIDE IN THE SKY IN THE GREENPEACE HOT AIR BALLOON
Bid for a ride in Greenpeace’s iconic Hot Air Balloon! Like our airship, it’s unique and airborne nature combined with its ability to display different banners tailored for specific projects allow us to communicate our campaign messaging in dramatic fashion. Hot air balloons have long been a part of the Greenpeace fabric. Historic Greenpeace balloon events include flights over the Berlin wall in 1983, over the US Nevada nuclear test site in 1987 and over the Taj Mahal during a protest in India in 1998.
We’ve had our current balloon since 2008 when it made its inaugural flight during the famous Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta to draw attention to the threat of global warming. It was a spectacular sight over the horizon and drew a lot of attention to itself in the midst of many amazing balloons at one of the largest balloon events in the world. Since then it has been used by Greenpeace to highlight environmental problems and solutions around the globe. Greenpeace will work with the winning bidder to schedule a flight time at an appropriate place in the greater Bay Area. It is, of course, weather dependent, so please bid generously on this once-in-a-lifetime experience with a bit of scheduling flexibility in mind.
