Remember last year when you stood out from the crowd? Let Idioma refresh your memory.
In November 2020, you joined us in fundraising for World Land Trust (WLT) - https://www.worldlandtrust.org/ - and supporting their plan to preserve endangered ecosystems around the world, acre by acre. The deal was that 10% of all sales from Idioma’s ‘Black Friday’ business would go to WLT, and we are thrilled to share with you the real world achievements…
Thanks to you and your purchasing power
Through the ‘Buy an acre’ programme, your shopping has saved 5 and ¾ acres (approx. 23,000m², or the size of the Colosseum in Rome) of endangered habitat in Argentina. Rife with wildlife, these lands will stay that way and continue to be home to creatures like the Chacoan Peccary, 200+ species of birds, 35 mammal species, and many more amphibians and reptiles.
What is more, your contribution of £590.78 to the ‘Keepers of the Wild’ programme means training, equipment, and wages for rangers on the reserve. Recruited from the local community and best-placed to protect and preserve these habitats, these professionals are fighting to protect our future now. That’s why your support is so crucial, timely and useful.
The credit is all yours
Your fashion has directly funded our futures: land, livelihoods and the languages tied to the terrain.
Coming together you all made a deliberate decision to help. You spotted the potential and made your purchase accordingly. That is remarkable, and Idioma wants to thank you for taking part.
It is our hope to be able to build on this success, on the foundations of your trust and hope, and inspire support for further positive projects. Stay in touch and bear with us. In the meantime, you can read more about our partnership with World Land Trust and their initiatives in our journal entry - Fund Forests not Black Friday - from November 2020.
And, if you really need to, we hope you'll continue to consume carefully and purchase proudly at the Idioma shop.
Proud of you all,
The Idioma Team
