Feedback from Lionaid
Another big thank you both to Evergreen Insurance Services and to the good people who have taken out insurance policies with them, nominating LionAid as the designated beneficiary charity. We received another cheque from them today.
It is so refreshing to see a commercial business with green ethics at its heart who put their money where their mouth is by donating up to 25% of their commissions back to those charitable conservation causes with whom they have partnered.
We all need to take out insurances as a requirement of our everyday lives and on a personal note, I have entrusted Evergreen to look after all my insurance requirements and I have found them to be excellent – not only in finding me the best deals on the market but their customer service and attention to detail is second to none.
At a time when funding for lion conservation has reached an all-time low and when the species has never been at greater risk of extinction, this support is hugely appreciated.
I know that donating is a big ask for most people in these austere times but when commercial choices we make can make a world of difference to the charities we support, without it costing us a penny, then maybe this is the time to think about supporting those companies that support us in turn.
