Organizations We Support


We are very excited to announce that 10% of all our profits will be getting donated to your choice out of these 10 incredible organizations:

 

 

The Amazon Conservation team has protected over 8.15 million acres of rainforest; provided cutting-edge tools to government and forest users to protect their lands; empowered hundreds of indigenous communities to develop forest-friendly livelihoods; and hosted thousands of scientists pioneering innovative research at our three conservation hubs. They have made a difference.

The threats to a healthy Amazon are multiplying. Now is the time to intensify our efforts to stop deforestation, partner with Amazonian people to find a more sustainable path to their own vision of development, build greater climate resilience, and support good governance to conserve the ecosystems and biodiversity on which we all depend.

 

Black Lives Matter Logo

#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.

Their Mission Statement:

We are expansive. We are a collective of liberators who believe in an inclusive and spacious movement. We also believe that in order to win and bring as many people with us along the way, we must move beyond the narrow nationalism that is all too prevalent in Black communities. We must ensure we are building a movement that brings all of us to the front.

We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.

We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise.

We affirm our humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.

The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.

 

Free A Girl Logo

  • Distinctive. Free a Girl is a small organization with global ambitions. We can respond quickly, compared to other organizations, and we are not afraid to speak out.

 

Ocean Conservancy Logo

At Ocean Conservancy, they are working with you to protect the ocean from today's greatest global challenges. They create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.

Their Mission Statement:

"A healthy ocean means more than beautiful coasts and vibrant ocean wildlife. If the ocean isn’t healthy, neither are we. Because the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we’re breathing this very second comes from our ocean.

Our work is focused on solving some of the greatest threats facing our ocean today. From the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico, we bring people, science and policy together, to champion innovative solutions and fight for a sustainable ocean.

That’s why for over forty years we’ve worked to protect vital ecosystems, defend critical legislation, enforce accountability of leaders and legislators and rally the world’s largest effort to remove trash from our beaches. Because a healthy ocean means a healthy planet."

Some of their programs include:

  • Protecting The Arctic (this is our personal favourite but we're pretty biased)
  • Confronting Climate Change
  • Confronting Ocean Acidification
  • Protecting Florida
  • Restoring the Gulf of Mexico
  • Sustainable Fisheries
  • Trash Free Seas                                                                                                                             
One Tree Planted Logo

One Tree Planted is a 501C3 non-profit with a focus on global reforestation. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.

One Dollar. One Tree.

How tree planting works

Their Mission Statement:

As an environmental charity, we are dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees!

Started in 2014, we have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, we now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help us get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.

In 2019, we were able to get more trees in the ground than ever before - 4 million!

 

Save The Elephants

Save The Elephants's mission is to secure a future for elephants and to sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live; to promote man’s delight in their intelligence and the diversity of their world, and to develop a tolerant relationship between the two species.

Their Projects:

Research and Monitoring

We conduct vital research on elephant behaviour and ecology and pioneered GPS radio tracking in Africa to provide fresh insight into the life of elephants. After over 20 years of intensive monitoring the elephants of Samburu are one of the world’s best-studied populations. We also assist in implementing a UN-level programme to monitor the illegal killing of elephants. Our solid scientific data has helped shift international policy towards a better future for the species.

Elephant Protection

We work with wildlife departments, protected area managers, and communities to assist their efforts to defend elephants against ivory poachers and traffickers. We develop and deploy cutting edge tracking systems to monitor and protect elephants. Through our Elephant Crisis Fund we have supported more than 83 partners in the implementation of over 300 different projects in 40 different countries (July 2020) aimed at stopping the killing, stopping the trafficking, and ending the demand for ivory.

Human-Elephant Co-Existence

Africa’s human population is set to double by 2050, creating enormous pressures for elephants. As farmland spreads and infrastructure developments fragment habitat, elephants are being forced into increasing conflict with people. STE provides information on elephant movements for landscape planners to protect rangeland and creates innovative solutions to prevent elephants from raiding crops, such as our Elephants & Bees project.

 

Surfrider Foundation Logo

The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.

What They Are Fighting For:

 

Plastic Pollution: Reducing the impact of plastics in the marine environments that surround us.

Beach Access: Working with decision-makers to ensure full and fair beach access for all to enjoy.

ocean protection

Ocean Protection: Defending our oceans from challenges threatening the vitality of the ecosystem.

coastal preservation

Coastal Preservation: Taking on issues that threaten our beaches and natural shorelines.

 clean water initiative

Clean Water: Protecting the health and sustainability of our planet's most precious resource.

 

Waves For Water LogoThe global water crisis is solvable. It’s not a question of technology, it’s a question of access. Waves For Water’s commitment to the urgency of this issue has inspired us to design programs that can create immediate access, resulting in immediate impact. To support and take immediate action with us, the following programs are great place to start.

Their Mission Statement:

We believe that access to clean water is a fundamental human right. Which is why we have dedicated our lives to providing it, through the implementation of portable water filter systems, the digging/renovating of bore-hole wells, and the construction of rainwater harvesting/storing systems (in places where groundwater is not accessible).

The global water crisis is solvable. The technology exists, along with the manpower to implement it. It just comes down to a choice: those who have access to clean water, choosing to provide it for those who don’t. On behalf of the entire Waves For Water team, we want to thank you for helping us make that choice.

 

Wildlife Alliance Logo

Wildlife Alliance is the leader in direct protection to forests and wildlife in the Southeast Asian tropical belt. They target the forests of the tropical belt because of their importance in regulating global climate.
