A Donation is made with every sale to Born Free's Amboseli National Park Elephants in Kenya.
At present we aim to donate 5% of order values each month (ex. VAT and ex. postage costs) for all non-discounted orders. Currently this is approx. 50p per pair sold via the website. For marketplace orders the same 5% is targetted (ex.VAT and ex. postage / marketplace fees).
Our aim by the end of 2020 is to be able to increase the level we can donate to 10% if possible (approx. £1 a pair for non-discounted orders) - if sales grow through the spring and summer of 2020 like they did during our 1st summer this year, then the volumes should allow us to hit that target - but we will keep customers up to date as we see how much sales grow and the cost savings this can bring become clearer.
We donate primarily to the Born Free Amboseli National Park Elephant research project via the Born Free Foundation - www.bornfree.org.uk - we also donate to our friend Bird and his elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mia, Thailand.
