It’s no secret that we here at Stamptitude have somewhat of a disdain for the mindless consumerism that is 'Black Friday'. Last year we found a way to offset some of this mindlessness by running our own 'Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday' campaign. It’s a simple concept, you encourage online spending on the Monday and then the next day you donate a portion of the sales to a charity of your choice.
The effect of the campaign for us last year was so heartwarming that we’ve decided to do it again this year. In light of recent political events it is now more important than ever to take action in preserving our planet for future generations. As a company who ships products worldwide, we are guilty of having a larger carbon footprint than we’d like to. This is why we’re making a conscious effort to gradually try and offset it.
The most pressing issue that faces our current generation is global climate change, and if you are one of the people who denies the scientific facts then you are unfortunately part of the problem. On Monday 28th November at Midnight (GMT) we will be offering Free International Shipping on ALL orders within a 24 hour period. Then on Tuesday 29th we will be donating half of our entire sales for the previous day to the @rainforesttrust
Our aim is to raise at least $1,000 which will help to protect 100 acres of land occupied by rainforest.
We purchased the above photo from @bengeierphotography via CreativeMarket.com and it was actually taken in the Hoh Rainforest in the state of Washington. It is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the US which is protected as part of the Olympic National Park and we’d like to see more of these beautiful forests being protected around the world. Trees are so grossly under-appreciated, especially considering the amount of good that they bring to this planet. So if you’d like to help us do our small amount of good then you can hold off ordering from us until Monday.
Thank you. #givingtuesday
UPDATE (Nov 29th):
Thank you to everybody that supported our 'Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday' campaign. As a result we were able to raise $1,231 USD towards the @rainforesttrust SAVE AN ACRE project. Together we will have helped save 123 acres of rainforest, Yay! 😁👏🏼
