HeroRAT VIP Adoption

A limited number of HeroRATs are available for adoption by your company, organization or group

 Name, follow and sponsor your very own HeroRAT.  There are also lots of opportunities for staff engagement, corporate branding, prestige and other rewards.  Name your HeroRAT after your CEO at your own risk...

How it works

Choose whether you want to sponsor a TB or Mine Detection HeroRAT. We have three specially designed packages for each budget. You will receive regular updates as well as the opportunity to name your HeroRAT. The Gold and Platinum package gives further branding and engagement opportunities.

Each adoption lasts for a year, but of course you are encouraged to continue.

Our team will provide support for workplace fundraising and fun ideas to help you reach your goal!
