I was just thinking to myself how common is it to grab a Starbucks or Costa coffee for the price of what £2-4 quid. I was just thinking and I am no way judging or egging People on but what if instead of a fancy coffee one morning we donated to fairyland and got 300 gold. All the money goes to such an amazing cause and I've kept up to date with the acers protected over the years and it's a shame it's not as popular as it used to be. I care very much for the environment and thought this was a idea.
Please let me know if that type of post is'nt allowed. I just wanted to spread some love

I've been thinking a lot about the environment lately. We have managed to make ourselves quite the disposable society. Doesn't anyone make a pot of coffee in the morning?
Yep double enough for 4 cups all before 12 haha. I do love coffee. Oh and chocolate

Just to clarify, "all the money" used to buy gold does *not* go toward rainforest protection. Mike donates part of the proceeds from the game (determined by the number of plants harvested in a specified period) to help the rainforest, but the rest of the money goes to fund the game and otherwise profit his business. So, if you are looking to help the game / Mike and the rainforest at the same time, buying gold is the way to do that. If you are only wanting to donate to help the rainforest, I'd advise finding a relevant organization and doing so directly rather than purchasing gold here.
Thank you Laura and Nymph. Also thank you to Rachel and sparkles for clarifying that. You're right. I just figured that if the community of fairylanders continued to support (in terms on gold but mostly helping other fairy gardens) it'd maintain or increase the numbers playing overall. That way with each plant harvested for each fairy it builds up the amount of rainforest protected. I was thinking on a larger scale of things. But thank you because that's a very valid point and alternative ways to help save our environment are vital.
I'm with you a 100% Rice. We are playing the game and it's a wonderful bonus to also be able to support the Rainforest. If everybody did a little extra it would all add up to help even more than to what Mike donates. I think it's wonderful that Mike does this and allows us to help in a tiny way. Mike doesn't have to donate any of his profits; it's a very nice gesture. I play a lot of video games and don't know of any other developer who contributes a portion of their earnings towards helping other causes. A lot do so on a one time basis, but not ongoing. I also have no problem buying gold and supporting the developer; he's made a great game and all employment deserves to be paid. Happy Friday :-)
