Independent 'sells' rainforest

Today's Independent, (one of Britains broadsheet newspapers) carried a special supplement on the 50 Best Christmas Gifts, and among them the World Land Trust's 'gift acres' were listed.

Just after midday I called at the office, and found the phone ringing and the answerphone full of messages -- obviously a lot of people extpected us to be at work on a Saturday, and so to work came Vivien, and spent the rest of the afternoon answering last minute Christmas gift requests.

It looks like next week will be hectic, but we're not complaining -- with any luck it will be enough to buy another chunk of forest in Ecuador. Our only concern is making sure people get their certificates before Christmas -- so if you're thinking of giving an acre as a present, please contact us as soon as possible -- if you can't get through on the phone, then our secure server on our website is definitely the easiest way. I regret that no one will be in the office tomorrow, but we're back on Monday, sharp at 9 a.m.

If you are contacting us by phone, the office is open 9 a.m. to 1p.m., and to 5p.m. At other times there is an answerphone.
