Hi friends, Collectively, we’re turning 51 this month, and we’d like to celebrate by raising money for Cool Earth, an awesome organization that’s mitigating the damaging effects of climate change by preventing deforestation - and doing so in a unique, sustainable way. Working with local communities is integral to Cool Earth’s mission to save the world’s rainforests. Rather than buy rainforest directly, Cool Earth helps local communities take legal control of their forest through non-logging agreements. These agreements aim to improve the lives of these communities to the point where they can withstand pressure to sell to loggers, and are based on the needs and specific requests of the community. Our goal is to raise $5100, or £4091 (go big or go home, right?), which will save approx. 51 acres of rainforest. 90% of all donations will go straight to Cool Earth projects. As Cool Earth is a UK-based organization, our fundraising page is in pounds, not dollars. Check out our handy conversion guide below, which also highlights some fun incentives based on your donation level: $15 = £12 $25 = £20 $50 = £40 - If you donate $50 or more, we’d like to mail you a 5x5 square print of one of the images you see scrolling below.

We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
