So – it is Christmas again, and whether one celebrates Jesus, Santa or Nollaig na mBan, or just enjoying some time off to spend with family and friends (or all of it!) – It is for sure a perfect time for reflections.
It is true, in this world of war and poverty, climate catastrophe and oppression – life sometimes feels a little heavy, and it is easy to feel hopeless. However, the year 2018 gave us many positive vibes as well! For us, as a company, we took many small steps towards a future where we hope to be successful in both business as well as mission. We truly believe that all of us can take an important role in the wellbeing’s of Mother Earth and make the world a safer, kinder and climate-friendlier place to be.
As a Swedish company, we are of course extremely proud of Greta Thunberg, the 15 year old who gave the fight for the climate a new face when she gave her speech at the COP24 in Katowice. Wow – she showed us all that indeed, each one of us CAN make a difference! Go Greta! We support you.
2018 we chose to support the NGO Free the Slaves – a collaboration we are intending to expand. Research reports show that 40 million people are in slavery today. 40 million. 25% of them are kids under the age of 8. We would therefore like to take the opportunity to urge you all to think of that when buying Christmas gifts. In the anti-counterfeit industry, we often say, if it looks too good to be true – then it most probably is. That of course is applicable for ALL products – not only counterfeits. We all like a good bargain – but if the product is super cheap, give yourself some time to think WHY the product is cheap. What little hands may have made it?
And of course – if you want to support Free the Slaves, not only by action but by funding as well, we know that all contributions makes a huge difference to them and the people they support. https://www.freetheslaves.net/dh/
From the depths of our hearts, we would like to wish you all a fantastic Holiday with your loved ones – and may 2019 be the year where we all get together in the fight for a safer world!
