Today, Your Dominion; Tomorrow, the World
Today, Your Dominion; Tomorrow, the World is an initiative we started out of a deep passion for preserving our natural environment, as well as for fostering the security and well-being of the diverse range of species that inhabit it.
We pledge to donate 10% of what we earn towards solving environmental problems and crises such as climate change, endangered species, deforestation, etc., including more specific, home-grown issues such as domestic animal abuse. As far as vintage art stores, we are the only one (that we know of) that will make this kind of difference in the world.
You are not just buying a beautiful and unique piece of vintage art for your home. You are also helping to preserve the natural beauty of our planet, as well as to make it a safe place for all living beings.
How do you prioritize your contributions? We put most of our funds into whichever issues are the most important at any given time. Right now, with climate change being a very serious situation, the majority of our funds will go towards climate change activism. This may change as more action is taken in that regard. But, to acknowledge that there are other problems, we will also contribute a fair amount to other causes.
How do you choose which organizations you contribute to? We are very careful to find the most reputable and trustworthy organizations, which we determine by two distinct factors.
Reputation: We research the organization's standing in terms of public opinion, distribution of funds, and any newsworthy events reflecting thereupon, including scandals, and breakthrough achievements.
Business practices: We refuse to donate to organizations that use questionable tactics, such as exploitative depictions of graphic imagery in television advertising, for instance.
And here's some more good news! As it turns out, we're not alone in this mission. Shopify (the company that programmed this lovely website,) is contributing a minimum of $5M annually to stop climate change. Here's an article on their contributions to the environment.
