With Christmas drawing near, many people start to feel more charitable and make a one-off donation to a cause of their choice. But charities need support all year round, so over the next few weeks we wanted to introduce you to the environmental charities that we support here at Po-Zu.
This week we thought it was appropriate that we showcase the very important work of The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF); a UK-based non-profit organisation working internationally to protect the environment and defend human rights. We have all heard about and seen the horrific devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in recent days and it’s easy to feel powerless against this out of control destruction. Extreme weather is becoming ever more frequent as the true force of Climate Change shows no remorse. Of particular concern are the environmental refugees; those displaced by these disasters. Did you know that they have no legal status, no recognition and no protection? As if they didn’t have enough to worry about! Imagine your entire home, neighbourhood and life as you knew it, obliterated. It’s simply too much to comprehend.
Well, EJF and their postcards campaign are trying to change this…take a look:
So what do you think?
We believe the power of the people has worked many times before and definitely can again. This postcard initiative is just one way you can help and play your part. Small changes and small change can make a real improvement in these people’s lives.
