2019: Who are we Supporting?

 

Their Mission:

Cool Earth is the non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change.

Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. And, contrary to the headlines, rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever.

It's not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved. We just need a new approach.

That’s why we don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put local people back in control of their forest.

The 350 million people that call the rainforest home stand to lose the most from deforestation but the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forest’s best possible custodians. That’s why all Cool Earth partnerships are community- owned and led – an approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing.

Our mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency

Why Cool Earth?

Climate Change is the greatest issue facing every human in present time.

Instead, it disproportionately targets those in low-lying, rural areas like the world's tropics

It is for this reason that this year, Love Tropics has chosen to partner with Cool Earth to address one of the world's leading contributors to climate change - deforestation.

Together with Cool Earth, Love Tropics aims to help stop deforestation in Papua New Guinea through strategic partnerships with natives. Papua New Guinea is facing increased deforestation due to poverty and increased pressure from palm plantations in the country.

We will work with Cool Earth to help these villages become more sustainable and self-sustaining so they don't have to sell off or give up their land when pressured.

 

Our History

2017

Amount Raised: $ 10,150
Supporting

In September 2017, the category 5 hurricane "Maria" tore through Puerto Rico, leaving the entire island without electricity or running water. Relief efforts were slow and disorganized, leaving most of the island in desperate need for humanitarian aid. The Minecraft community, led by the Love Tropics team, came together in less than a month to organize the first ever Love Tropics event, raising money for the Direct Relief charity to bring water and first aid to the people of Puerto Rico.

2018

Amount Raised: $ 35,327
Supporting

A year after Puerto Rico was devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria, much of the island had finally gotten their electricity and water back. The same could not be said for the roofs of their homes. The strong winds had knocked off the roofs off tens of thousands of homes across the island, and not many had the resources to afford a new one, let alone a tarp. For 2018, Love Tropics elected to support Team Rubicon's efforts on the island to help people get new roofs for their homes.

Climate Change is one of humanity's greatest threats in present time. It especially affects those in low-lying, rural areas like the world's tropics, which is why Love Tropics has chosen to partner with Cool Earth for 2019's event. Together with Cool Earth, Love Tropics aims to help stop deforestation in Papua New Guinea, which is facing increased deforestation due to poverty and increased pressure from palm plantations in the country. Love Tropics will work with Cool Earth to help these villages become more sustainable and self-sustaining so they don't have to sell off or give up their land when pressured.
