There's never been a better time to make double the difference!

It’s been a tough year for everyone. With coronavirus changing the world as we know it, and the climate crisis continuing to devastate the earth, things are feeling a little overwhelming for many of us right now.

But what better way to combat the gloom than by taking action and making a positive difference in the world?

Our partners at Traidcraft Exchange, the trade justice charity, are asking for amazing people like you to come together this spring by hosting a fundraising event. You can make DOUBLE the difference to the lives of thousands of vulnerable farmers battling the devastating impact of climate change through supporting their Regenerators appeal.

All donations to the Regenerators appeal made between 8th March 2021 and 7th June 2021 will be doubled by the UK government – so there’s never been a  better time to get together, however you can, and help change things for the better this Spring!

Watch the video below to learn more about the appeal:

Traidcraft Exchange can help you to spread a little joy by bringing people together, whether online or offline, and help people like Mwaidini to regenerate their land and their livelihoods. With support, they can invest in green technology like solar panels and irrigation, and earn more from their hard work – whilst protecting the land they rely upon.

“I would like people to understand that climate change has impacted my family, as well the entire community in our village, in many ways - health wise, due to the eruption of water borne diseases, and economically as the main source of income in our village is from farming, and cashew trees (and other crops) are highly affected by flooding and drought.” Mariam, 32, farmer and mother of two.

Traidcraft Exchange have put together a FREE Big Brew pack, which contains everything you need to host your own fantastic event – including an event guide packed with fun online and offline fundraising ideas, beautiful posters, invitations, cake flags, a trivia quiz and game.
