THE PARROT CAMPAIGN
To mark the end of 2013 we ran a fundraising campaign leading up to Christmas to plant the PARROT on the Bloomtrigger map. Our target was to raise $2500 to enable a new family to establish an agroforestry plot in the Peruvian Amazon. Unfortunately we did not manage to make this target, however we did manage to raise enough to atleast plant the PARROT on the Bloomtrigger map. Thank you to everyone who generously donated, your name has now been added to the PARROT. We will continue to fundraise until we reach the full target and then send the total to our partners (the Crees Foundation) in Peru. And of course we will keep you updated with our progress!
Here is the PARROT (Macaw!!!) planted on the Bloomtrigger map below! You can click this image below to follow a link to the PARROT profile page, if you scroll down the page you will find the map with the location of the PARROT for you to explore. Most of the donors names can be found of the yellow squares around the PARROT's chest!

4. HOW CAN I BUY AN ORGANIC TSHIRT WITH THE PARROT ON?
If you are interested in buying a 100% organic cotton tshirt with the PARROT, then get in touch with us and we can see what we can do!
5. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY YOU RAISE?
Our target is to raise $2500 to enable a new family in the Manu region of the Peruvian Amazon to establish an agroforestry plot through our partnership with the Crees Foundation. To read tonnes more information about how this works go to our donate page.
WAIT THERE IS MORE! We will convert the money into blooms (Bloomtrigger's virtual currency) and this is how we will be able to plant the parrot mosaic on the Bloomtrigger map. Hopefully we should be able to get more blooms than we actually need to plant the parrot, so then we will be able to distribute the extra blooms amongst the primary schools that are taking part in the Bloomtrigger project to enable children around the world to help protect their own part of the rainforest.
6. WHY DO THE COLOURS LOOK STRANGE WHEN I DOWNLOAD THE LOW OR HIGH RES IMAGE OF THE PARROT?
The low resolution and high resolution images are in a CMYK format, which means they are ready to be printed, but the colours will look strage on a computer screen unless in a RGB format.
