ibuyeco has given over £80,000 in support of The Converging World’s efforts – you can help us reach £100,000!Since joining forces with insurance experts ibuyeco last year we’ve been amazed at the amount they have donated. The donations, which are linked to the number of car and home insurance policies sold, now total over £80,000 – and we’re hoping for more great things over the rest of the year!Wendy Stephenson at The Converging World said “We want to thank ibuyeco and anyone reading who has taken out a car or home insurance policy with them and chosen The Converging World to receive their donation.””The £80,000 donated by ibuyeco means that we have been able to carry on our vital work. ibuyeco’s continued support will help more wind turbines to be built, generating more renewable energy and providing more funding for vital health, education and environmental projects around the world.”Lucy Bailey, head of ibuyeco said “We are really pleased that we have been able to support The Converging World in such an amazing way, with their unique approach to tackling climate change and supporting the move towards a just and sustainable world. The donations have ultimately enabled work on some amazing projects such as providing school places for children who would otherwise be forced to work, cataract operations, treatment for leprosy and other nutritional education for some of the poorest; kitchen gardens, women’s self help groups and support for subsistence farmers to improve their production through better water management and organic, sustainable farming practices. ibuyeco is proud to be associated with the charity and ibuyeco is committed to doing what it can in helping the environment. The level of donations show that our customers are committed to protecting our planet too.”For every car insurance policy sold, ibuyeco makes a £5 donation to an eco-charity and for home insurance they donate £5 for a combined buildings and contents insurance policy, or £2.50 for either a buildings only or contents only policy. The donation is made by ibuyeco, not by the customer.There is no limit on how much money ibuyeco will donate, so if you haven’t already you can get a quote from them next time your car or home insurance is due, and choose The Converging World to receive your donation if you take out insurance through them!There are other benefits too – independent research shows that you could save up to £207* on your car insurance with ibuyeco.
