  • charities

    2 charities we're raising money for.

    Women's rights organizations we're advocating for.

    the official charity of the adventurists

    Cool Earth is the Charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt Rainforest destruction.

     

    We put local people back in control, giving them the resources they need to keep their forest intact. And by saving at-risk Rainforest, we form shields for millions of acres of neighboring forest.
