Overview: My Charity Enamel Pin Collections

“Wonderland” is an enamel pin collection featuring mammals threatened by habitat loss, and who might one day only be found in storybooks. The design collection takes on an aesthetic inspired by illustrated children’s books, and each pin badge presents a mother and child scenario.

One of my charity enamel pins: a vibrant enamel pin presenting a black rhino mother with her baby. The two are depicted in a semi-realistic art style, and stand surrounded by screenprinted foliage. The enamel pin is made from fresh green, blue and grey shades of hard enamel, and raised outlines in gold plated metal.

In the summer of 2020, I came up with an aquatic design collection in response to the #MakersForVanAqua initiative on Instagram. The goal was to raise donations for the Vancouver Aquarium during their COVID closures.

Month Raised Donations Made:
May 2020 – Jan 2021 $91 raised, rounded up to $100.
Donated to the Vancouver Aquarium

The donation recipient of this collection might change in 2021, but each wooden charity pin sold will form a donation of £0.50:

Pins Against Poaching raises donations towards ending illegal hunting of protected animals. Our first donation was made to Global Conservation Force; an awesomely active anti-poaching charity I highly encourage you to check out.

Our second donation was made to IAPF: the International Anti-Poaching Foundation. They have a program called “Akashinga – Nature Protected by Women”, which I am madly in love with. The newly established program works to end poaching, while also creating jobs for 1000 women by 2025.

Month Raised Donations Made:
Jan 2020 – Feb 2020 $300, Global Conservation Force
March 2020 – Jan 2021 £308, International Anti-Poaching Foundation

In 2021, I will continue to donate £1 per pin sold from my “Pins Against Poaching” collection:

REST Namibia is a charity that strives to protect lesser known wildlife in Namibia, and is very dear to my heart. I came across their work while randomly browsing pangolin photos on the internet, and I instantly fell in love with their rescue mission.

Since our first donation of £60, we’ve raised £118 more that has yet to be donated. We’re working our way up to sponsoring a Pangolin Tracker at $500, which will allow REST Namibia to keep track of one more pangolin released back into the wild.

Month Raised Donations Made:
Up to Feb 2020 £60, REST Namibia
Feb 2020 – Jan 2021 £152 raised, donation not yet made.
Target: $500 (USD) to sponsor a Pangolin Tracker.

Our £152 is roughly $250 (calculated on Jan 11th, 2020). So we’re already halfway there! 😀

Pangolin Charity Enamel Pins

In 2021, I will be donating £1 to REST Namibia per pangolin pin sold. If you’d like to help fund the Pangolin Tracker, these are the perfect pins to pick up:
