Who are the Rainforest Firefighters?


Rainforest Firefighters are regular people.

Mums, dads, brothers, sisters, cousins and grandparents. They are cacao growers, farmers, teachers, students; people just like you.

You can support the Rainforest Firefighters by donating today.

 

They fight rainforest fire with all they’ve got.

And it’s not a lot. They do what we all would to protect our home, our families and our livelihoods in the face of climate induced fires. Rainforest communities have thousands of years of history managing fires but due to climate breakdown the goal posts have moved. We must work together to win.

We have a chance to use cash to not only put out fires but to prevent them.

What happens in rainforest doesn’t stay in rainforest. A home to millions of people, life saving plants, the food we eat and an intricate ecosystem of animals and insects is experiencing climate breakdown. Fires. A problem caused by multinational corporations, and one that can be solved by people. People like you.

Join the Rainforest Firefighters.

Fund more equipment. More resources. More support. Stand behind the people fighting flames. You may not be in the rainforest but you can back the people that are.

Cash puts fires out.

Use your cash to help fight fires. Some use machetes, we can use money. By investing in rainforest communities be it for fire training, farming or GPS satellite technology we can dare to reimagine one of the worlds greatest carbon capturing ecosystems as stable, safe and a nurturing place for the whole planet.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.
A Gift Aid declaration allows Cool Earth to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Cool Earth we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I state I am a UK taxpayer making a personal donation and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Cool Earth receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that you have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. Please let us know if your tax circumstances, name and/or address details change so we can amend our records.
