Let’s keep this up for 2022. We’ve got some great causes lined up, but we’re always open to suggestions. If you have a charity you’d like to see on the Marketplace, then let us know! 💌

🤝 Fund better support and treatment. Alcohol Change support services in the UK that help people towards recovery.
Atlantic Pacific International Rescue is an NGO committed to combatting global drowning. Every year, it’s estimated that around 235,600 people drown worldwide. Atlantic Pacific strives to prevent this by providing lifeboats and training, particularly to areas in need 🙌.
They work all over the world and provide their services to areas that do not have a water rescue service in place. This is especially valuable for regions that, as a result of global climate change, are more affected by natural disasters and flooding.
Nationally, Atlantic Pacific offers educational sessions to young people. They introduce ideas around water safety and highlight awareness of the risk of natural disasters and climate change in the wider world. Internationally, their Lifeboat in a Box educational programme offers a summer camp to teach young people about sea safety, pollution, and search and rescue techniques 🌊.
