You can help fund our climate future

What’s happening?

Every minute, governments around the world back fossil fuels with millions of dollars, but big polluter nations claim they don’t have funds to aid the most vulnerable countries dealing with floods, droughts and storms. Now poorer nations say if they can’t count on the money, they can’t sign up to a global climate deal due to be finalised in weeks. It is a deadly deadlock, but if enough of us demand our public funds shift from dirty energy right now, we could unlock the finance to help those most in need.

Right now 80 ministers from across the world are meeting to try and find a solution. We can join with Avaaz to help them along. Let’s get one million of us behind this push – Avaaz will deliver the call to the key ministers to expose the lie and shame them into action.

Avaaz’s efforts

Avaaz have put together a petition to send to G20 leaders to get them to honour their pledge to stop funding fossil fuels. Along with millions of our signatures, this petition will hopefully be the driving force to get them into action for our climate future.

Supporting Avaaz

The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.

The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.

The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Well recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.

The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:

How you can help

Join with Avaaz and send your message to the G20 leaders.

“As concerned citizens, we call on you to commit the long-term funding beyond 2020 needed for a strong global climate deal in Paris, and honour your pledges to stop funding fossil fuels. Richer countries must announce ongoing support to poorer nations so they will be able to invest in clean energy and cope with the impacts of climate change. The whole world must work together now to get a planetary agreement and stop the devastation that threatens us all.” – Avaaz
