The recipient of your gift will get to know which charity you supported as well as receiving a small booklet on your chosen charity's mission and initiatives.

 

By supporting Carbon Footprint's international tree planting projects, you can compensate for your environmental impact, protect wildlife and benefit local communities. For each tree planted, a tonne of carbon will be saved in the Amazon Rainforest through their avoided deforestation projects. 

The Urku Amazonian Studies Reforestation Project in Peru aims to help recover the Amazon dry forest through reforestation in partnership with local indigenous community co-operatives. The project undertakes planting of dry forest plants, focusing on the reforestation of the Maya Nut tree.

 

Slavery did not end with abolition in the 19th century. Instead, it changed its forms and continues to harm people in every country in the world. Whether they are women forced into prostitution, men forced to work in agriculture or construction, children in sweatshops or girls forced to marry older men, their lives are controlled by their exploiters, they no longer have a free choice and they have to do as they’re told. They are in slavery.

Anti Slavery work to end slavery throughout the world. They have projects in the UK and Europe, Africa and Asia, but their campaigning work covers the whole world. Together with local organisations they work to secure the freedom of those affected by slavery and press for effective implementation of laws against slavery.

 

Survival International are the global movement for tribal peoples. From the Amazon to the Kalahari, from the jungles of India to the Congo rainforest, they work in partnership with tribal peoples to protect their lives and land. They suffer racism, land theft, forced development and genocidal violence just because they live differently.

Survival International fight for tribal peoples’ survival. They stop loggers, miners, and oil companies from destroying tribal lands, lives and livelihoods across the globe. They lobby governments to recognise indigenous land rights, document and expose the atrocities committed against tribal people and take direct action to stop them.

Survival International give tribal peoples a platform to speak to the world. They've had over 200 victories since 1969, but their work is far from over and they need your help.

THE OCEAN CLEAN UP

OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN

Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.

The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organisation, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. By utilising the ocean currents to their advantage, their passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years’ time.
