Our 2022 Q3 giving summary: £30,320 donated

At Ticket Tailor we’re driven by the mantra of "Growth on Purpose". While our primary mission is to make it easy and affordable to sell event tickets, there’s an overarching purpose for our business to have a positive impact.

In 2021 we pledged to donate 1p for every ticket sold to climate causes, partnering with three charities to protect our oceans, rainforests and bogs.

After a booming summer we’re thrilled to be giving £8,440 ($9.3k) to each charity, that’s £25,320 ($28k) in total from the last three months of ticket sales!

How Ticket Tailor donations are helping indigenous rainforest populations protect their local environments | Ticket Tailor x Rainforest Foundation UK

About 17 percent of the Amazonian rainforest has been destroyed over the past 50 years, and losses are on the rise. In fact, destruction rose by 21% in 2020 alone. When contemplating these sobering statistics, it’s often wildlife conservation and climate change action that spring to mind.

But what about the indigenous communities who live in and rely on rainforests for food, medicine, shelter and livelihoods? There are millions of them, and empowering them to defend their own ancestral lands is the key to protecting the rainforests of our world – as non-profit NGO, Rainforest Foundation UK (RFUK)’s 33 year-strong mission poignantly highlights.

At Ticket Tailor, we’re proud to donate 1p (1.3c) to important causes for every ticket sold through our platform, and RFUK is one of them. In fact, in 2021 we partnered with three climate charities: Rainforest Foundation UK (RFUK), Ocean Conservation Trust, and Cumbria Wildlife – for healthier oceans, healthier forests, and healthier bogs, to protect our planet and people.

Here, we chat with RFUK to give you an insight into their work, our involvement, and how you – both individuals and businesses – can get involved, too.
