Honnold Foundation

Reading Alex's book, Alone on the Wall and immediately after, watching Free Solo (2018), it was an easy choice to acknowledge such an incredible individual achievement through a contribution to his foundation.

 

Even if you're not into climbing, you will be impressed by the film crew's ability to capture this remarkable story.

 

 Taken from the website:


"The Honnold Foundation envisions a world where all people have equal access to opportunity and live in balance with the environment. We believe in solar as a proven, environmentally sound solution to global energy poverty, and we award grants to community organizations whose projects are innovative, equity-focused, and have the potential to shift the narrative on what’s possible for energy access worldwide."

Bumblebee Conservation Trust

I filmed a press release at Kew Gardens a few years ago for their bee and insect pollinator awareness event.

It was a fascinating and insightful day that keeps coming back to me whenever the plight of bees reappear in the news. 

Check out the resources available from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, as well as the

British Bee Coalition (www.britishbeecoalition.org)

to see what super simple contributions you can make to supporting bees and insect pollinators.

 Taken from the website:


"Bumblebees are an important and cherished component of our biodiversity. Several species are threatened with national extinction. We aim to ensure that populations of these species have a longterm future in the UK. Our more common bumblebee species contribute significantly to our economy through the pollination of crops. Pollination is vital for many of the nation’s wild plants and it helps to maintain affordable five-a-day fruit and vegetables. Bumblebees also support the wider ecosystem through pollinating a diversity of wild plant species."

Groundwater Relief

One of the best things about being an independent filmmaker is the way it introduces you to people and organisations you may not have otherwise come across.

My wife told me about the challenges her friend's husband's work has in helping distribute water to those who need it most.

It's very easy to take for granted the fact that we just need to turn the tap on to get water. Not everyone in the world is so lucky.

 Taken from the website:

"Groundwater Relief provides technical support to organisations engaged in supplying water to the world's poorest and most vulnerable people.

Via our membership of over 300 technical experts, we help organisations construct and manage groundwater infrastructure in a professional, responsible, cost effective and sustainable way, engaging local authorities, companies and institutions."
