Why rainforest wildfires affect us all

All fire has the potential to be dangerous, life changing, important. We know that. We also know that the health of rainforest affects the entire planet, all of us. 

From bananas to blizzards to heatwaves.

Rainforest regulates our weather, affects the food we eat, air we breathe, medicine we consume and the animals that we not only love but need. Most importantly it’s home to millions of people with thousands of years of experience managing rainforest.


People are the solution to the climate crisis.

If communities are forced out of their home – or worse – the rainforest suffers. That’s why us and many other charities, NGO’s and activist groups are focussing energy here. The planet’s tinderbox. Undoing the damage to rainforest, by fire or otherwise, tackles the climate crisis at the root.

Join the Rainforest Firefighters.

People with no equipment, training or support are putting out rainforest fire right now. Anyway they can. We too must do our bit. This fight is ours too. Some use machetes; we can use money. 

Cash puts the most important fire in the world out.

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.
