Still doing your Christmas shopping? Whether it’s by making a gift donation, by buying from World Land Trust gallery or by spending online through Give as you Live, there are plenty of ways to help raise funds at Christmas.
Gift donations make great presents
A gift donation to World Land Trust (WLT) is a simple and ethical Christmas present. Donations of £25 or more come with a gift pack in the name of the gift recipient, and the donor can choose to support many different aspects of WLT’s overseas conservation work.
A gift donation of £25 will safeguard a quarter of an acre of tropical forest. Or, you might want to help save the Caucasian Leopard in Armenia or to protect vital habitat for Orang-utans in Malaysian Borneo.
Planting trees to restore tropical forests is another favourite – WLT guarantees five native rainforest trees will be planted in Ecuador for a gift donation of £25. (And £5 will plant one tree – an easy stocking filler!)
You can also support a Keeper of the Wild with a gift donation for the man in your life.
You choose the cause closest to your heart or that of your gift recipient, and by making a gift donation you help spread WLT’s conservation message and raise awareness of our work to save threatened habitats and endangered species.
Friday 20 December is the last day we can take orders for gift donations with a printed gift pack to arrive by mail in time for Christmas. We can take orders for gift packs to arrive by email in time for Christmas up to and including Sunday 22 December 2013.
Inspiring gifts at WLT gallery
If you live in or near Halesworth, WLT gallery is well worth a visit in the run up to Christmas. The gallery has on sale an original selection of artwork, jewellery, cards and books, and is just the place for imaginative and unusual gifts.
Art and sculpture by local artists is on display in the current exhibition, Surviving the Season, which runs until 15 January 2014.
We also have an online gallery shop, which offers a wide range of art, books, gifts and accessories, including some items made by our corporate supporters. Buying goods from WLT’s corporate supporters is another good way to raise funds for WLT.
Give as you Live
We can’t say it often enough – and we’ll keep on saying it! Do your online shopping through Give as you Live and thousands of high street stores and brands will make a donation to WLT. Please make sure that WLT benefits from every penny you spend online.
