Philanthropy

We believe in giving back. 

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/, specifically to aid this non profit foundation’s long-standing efforts to mitigate human-elephant conflict and thereby protect the island’s endangered remaining 5,000 wild elephants.

We are grateful to the British Airways Heritage Centre's Curator Paul Jarvis for giving us exclusive permission to sell our digital remaster 21st century prints of our original 1953 Fly To Ceylon By B.O.A.C [British Overseas Air Corporation] vintage poster. In exchange we were glad donate proceeds from sales of this image to the British Airways Heritage Centre in 2018.

We also give proceeds from sales of specific Ceylon / Sri Lanka posters to The Galle Heritage Foundation http://www.galleheritage.gov.lk/en/ to help fund the Ministry of National Heritage-born Foundation’s vital “mission to conserve Galle Fort as a historic city centre of the utmost archaeological importance and to develop it to be a tourist centre of excellence.”

In Europe: A fixed percentage of all profits from all purchases of our Iberia (Mallorca/Islas Baleares) posters go to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF https://www.msf.es/) and of specific poster designs to The United Nations' Refugee Agency (UNHCR https://www.savethemed.org/en/).

We help fund Save The Med Foundation’s https://www.savethemed.org/en/ crucial eco-maritime conservation efforts to promote more sustainable and environmentally sensitive travel across the Mediterranean region. We do this by contributing a fixed percentage of all proceeds raised through sale of four Islas Baleares-orientated images featuring water-sports and cruise ships to this formidable Balearics-born organisation.

We also donate proceeds from all sales of Mia to The Humming Bird Initiative to bring direct access to water to remote villagers in East Africa.

When you buy our posters you help us fund all these vital initiatives. So we, along with all our stakeholders, thank you for your support.

From the outset we have believed in the importance of striving to be a force for good in the local communities wherein we have grown. 

Farrah and Alexa, the daughters of Co Founders of Stick No Bills

 

It remains our abiding intention to prove 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 philanthropic and environmental projects that we support.

In 2012 we founded the Galle Fort Flea Market and began sponsoring The Galle Heritage Foundation. In 2013, in collaboration with other business owners in Galle we became founding members of Greener Galle, the community-launched initiative to, among other things, transform Galle Fort into the world's first carbon-neutral living UNESCO heritage city.

Since 2015 we have donated proceeds from sales of our Ceylon / Sri Lanka images to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society.

In 2018 we became sponsors of the fledgling Surfing Federation Of Sri Lanka

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 is at the top of her game and 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 recongised 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.
