Philanthropy / Giving Back
We believe in giving back.
From the outset we have championed the importance of striving to be a force for good in the local communities wherein we have grown.
To this day the Founders of Stick No Bills® remain intent on proving to our daughters that a family-run, creative business such as ours can flourish, enabling its staff, key suppliers and their families to prosper with us long term, while also being profitable enough to serve as a sustainable funding source for the vital humanitarian, philanthropic, sporting and environmental projects that we support.
In Asia a fixed percentage of all profits from all purchases of Stick No Bills® Ceylon / Sri Lanka posters go to the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society https://www.slwcs.org/
We will always be grateful to surf champion Stephanie Gilmore for letting us interrupt her sublime victory at the final, Hawaii-leg of her 2017 world championship tour to sign limited editions of A Wave Of Your Own to help us raise funds for the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society.
We elected the Australian super star as the Stick No Bills® heroine because she represents everything we love. Stephanie is free, she is brave, she is indefatigable, she surfs with style and grace and she is always humble when she wins. Stephanie also shares our passion for clean waves, for protecting the environment and the world's most endangered species.
With Stephanie and her cousin Whitneys’ help we have risen over the past three years to become a major corporate sponsor of the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society. As of April 2019 the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society has recognised us as one of their few 'major corporate sponsors' for giving a fixed percentage of proceeds on each and every sale of every single image in our Ceylon / Sri Lanka collection to their wild elephant protection projects.
