At Tree Aid, we believe that finding solutions to address climate change always begins at community level. From poverty alleviation to land restoration, the work we do would not be possible without the generous support from our community of our corporate partners. Designed by experts in the field, our holistic approach to sustainable development goes beyond tree planting alone. With the help of like-minded organisations, we support communities to rebuild financial independence through growing trees, nutritious food and social enterprises.
Today, we would like to take the opportunity to specifically thank one of our partners, Ohh Deer, who have supported us since 2017– donating over £105,000 to tackling the effects of the climate emergency in one of the world’s most vulnerable regions.
Over the years, Ohh Deer’s unrestricted gifts have helped to make an incredible difference to the people participating in our 6 project countries: Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Ethiopia, Ghana & Senegal. During the Covid lockdown period, their generous support helped us to continue our vital work in Africa’s drylands.
Founded in 2011, Ohh Deer was created by Jamie Mitchell and Mark Callaby. This queer-run business focuses on supporting artists and creating awesome products. They have a passion for paper products, focussing on greeting cards, stationery, and gifts.
Ohh Deer’s partnership was unique. Supporting us via their stationery box subscription service, Papergang, they planted the equivalent of 1 tree per 4 box sales. Designed by stationery addicts, Papergang boxes are lovingly created by a different illustrator each month and feature a range of supplies for the avid note-booker, doodler or anyone that loves beautifully curated artist collaborations.
Tree Aid looks forward to discovering where Ohh Deer's journey will take them next, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank Jamie, Mark and the whole team for their support over the last six years. Without amazing organisations like Ohh Deer, our work simply wouldn’t be possible.
