Charities supported by Bare Kind
Bare Kind has chosen to support various charities for the Sock Profit Donation programme.
I will be donating 10% of the profits from the sales of my socks. Each pair of socks will be linked to a charity that supports the animal on the sock. Please click on the links below to find out more about the charities I am supporting.
Turtles - The Turtle Foundation - Registered Charity Number: 1186209
"Our vision is a future where sea turtles and their habitats are sustainably protected, healthy, and safe from threat of extinction and destruction.

Amur Leopards - TIGRIS - Registered Charity Number: 1191345
A Dutch foundation founded in 1997. The first NGO to start conservation projects with a focus on Amur Leopards.

Orangutans - The Orangutan Foundation - Registered Charity Number: 1095660
"Saving orangutans by protecting their tropical forest habitat, working with local communities, and promoting research and education.
Our approach goes beyond that of purely protecting orangutans. It recognises that orangutans are essential to their habitat, which is unique in its rich biodiversity and is crucial for local communities, who are as dependent on the forest as the orangutans."

Bumblebees - The Bumblebee Conservation Trust - Registered Charity Number: 1115634
"The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’
In the last 80 years our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically."
The trust are working toward 4 key objectives:
"1 Enhance the understanding of bumblebee ecology and conservation.
2 Increase the quality and quantity of bumblebee habitat.
3 Inspire and enable a diverse range of people to take action for bumblebees.
4 Be an effective and sustainable organisation."

The organisation works closely with colony managers to identify birds in need of care in the wild and bring them to one of our two centres in South Africa: Cape Town (Western Cape) and Port Elizabeth (Eastern Cape)"
