At The Wanderlust Group, we are trying to better the world by getting people out in it. To do this, we need clean oceans, protected forests, a reversal of climate change, and, above all, a generation of new adventure-seekers dedicated to conserving the outdoors. Investing in those causes is as central to our business as investing in our product is. As we grow our company, we'll be making philanthropic investments in recognition of our own impact on the environment and our respect for it. We've called the ongoing initiative, The Wanderfund, and you can get involved.
The Wanderfund launched at the start of 2022. This year we will invest $300,000 into nonprofit working to support the environment or engage people in nature. We're kicking off the year with two incredible organizations that align with our brand values: Ocean Conservancy, a global organization working to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges and the Boys & Girls Club of Newport County, to support programs that get youth outside introducing new generations to a shared love and respect for the outdoors. TWG was founded in Newport, so this latter investment is also a tribute to the community that gave our company its start. Throughout the year we'll add more nonprofits to the list.
Every quarter of every year we'll select another nonprofit working to support our environment and invest in its future. Some will be major global organizations, some may be small-but-mighty local efforts in key regions. We invite you to suggest organizations for us to consider by messaging us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Linkedin, just use the hashtag #wanderfund with some details on why you think we should contribute to your recommended organization. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll profile the organization we choose each quarter on our blogs and our social accounts. Thank you for joining us in this effort.
