Happy Birthday Cool Earth

We’re throwing a birthday party. Not the depressing type full of lackluster presents and stale party rings. At Cool Earth we know how to celebrate a birthday. 

When Cool Earth was born eight years ago, Dalton was a brand new baby in Cutivireni, a village with a very uncertain future. 

Thanks to the support of the Adventurists, Cutivireni has an alternative to the loggers. Eight years on, Dalton and his community have gone from strength to strength. No trees have been lost, families are building thriving incomes, and he’s the picture of health.
 

THAT WAS JUST THE START

What started in Cutivireni is now a global movement. By putting people who depend on the rainforest in charge of the rainforest, you’ve helped to invent the most effective way of saving rainforest. 

But as you’d expect from an eight year-old who’s just downed two litres of lemonade on their birthday, we’re overexcited. That’s because we have the most electrifying year ahead of us.
 

ONE GOOD THING LEADS TO ANOTHER

Every single one of Cool Earth’s community partnerships is organically grown. Every single one expands because the neighbours like the look of what we’re doing. 

In our first year, three villages asked to work with us. This year, over a hundred new villages want to partner with Cool Earth and the queue will keep growing.

This means that together with the Adventurists we have the chance to protect more rainforest through community partnerships than any other charity or any government. And of course, we’re excited because we’re throwing a birthday party for Dalton...and the 4,864 children born into safe villages since Cool Earth started.

Thank you fine Adventurists for you monumental support. Here’s to the next eight years.
