As you know, we are partnered up with Blue World Institute since September 2018, and the price for each engraving of a sea turtle, dolphin, sea ray, shark or whale we are donating to them (minus the 25% VAT that is collected by the Croatian state). Read more about our Save Marine Life Campaign.
We believe in total transparency, so please find below all the sums raised via your engravings and the sums we have donated to date.
From the beginning of our partnership, our amazing customers ordered Save Marine Life engravings in total value of 11446,4 HRK and we donated to date a total of 14.000 HRK to Blue World Institute. Yes, we added a little extra to the sum we pledged to donate, to show our real support for the work this amazing Croatian research institute based in Velj Losinj island is doing. You can read all about them here. And the announcement of our cooperation is published on their website here.
