When I first created the Oriens Tarot deck, I knew I wanted to create a product that creates a positive impact on our world. Because of this ideal, I did my best to ensure that all of our products are made with sustainable materials and pledged to give a portion of my profits to the Rainforest Trust as I believe that we have a responsibility to give back to our communities.
I'm happy to announce that because of your support, we're able to save 1,500 acres of land through the conservation action fund.
Furthermore, in light of recent events, I am also donating a portion to a few human rights organizations that I support. You can check out these non-profits a link below if you would like to know more about them and be sure to send them some love as well if you can.
Once again, I just want to extend my sincerest gratitude to everyone who has purchased a deck and made this possible.
1. TRC ARF WIldlife and Bushfire QLD Appeal BY MKC
The Mini Kitty Commune collected on behalf of the Rescue Collective/ARF for the Bushfire appeal. The MKC was generous enough to stand the funding program up & carry the financial risk to help other animals and they have not asked for a cent, they have also committed huge resources, volunteers, and teams for this project.
Rainforest Trust purchases and protects the most threatened tropical forests, saving endangered wildlife through partnerships and community engagement. Through these highly effective partnerships, they will ensure sustainable results necessary for the long-term protection of tropical ecosystems and the wildlife they hold.

The Bridging the Gap Foundation (the Foundation) has been established through the Menzies School of Health Research (Menzies) and Charles Darwin University (CDU). Its objective is to fund research into health and education in order to address one of Australia’s most urgent issues: the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians’ health and education opportunities and outcomes.
The Foundation will work in partnership with health and education researchers, universities and other institutions in Australia and overseas, and will collaborate with governments and agencies at both national and international levels, to achieve its goal of improving Indigenous health and education. It will also aim to increase public awareness of the need to improve the health and educational opportunities and outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
