New Partnership to Fight Global Trafficking Converts Sleep to Impact

Bangkok and Copenhagen, October 16, 2018 - Today, Freeland, the global civil society organization, and Goodwings, the global hotel-booking platform announced their new partnership to make the world a better place. The two organizations have agreed that 5% of every booking made through Goodwings in the name of Freeland will be donated to Freeland projects to protect vulnerable people and wildlife from trafficking.

The potential impact from the new partnership is significant, given Freeland’s success record and efficient use of funding to achieve impact (see Freeland Success Stories)

For example:

  • $5 Keeps 1 Ranger on Patrol for 1 day to Stop Poaching Wild Animals

  • $30 Provides Protection of 1 Hectare of Tiger Forest for 1 Year

  • $50 Pays for 1 At-Risk Villager to Undergo Training in Organic Farming so they are less susceptible to trafficking recruiters

  • $100 Sponsors the Rescue of 1 Victim of Human Trafficking

The Goodwings platform reaches 365,000 hotels around the world and competes with prices made on other hotel booking platforms. “Customers will get the same value for their purchase with Goodwings as with any other platform --and more actually because they can sleep even better at night knowing they are helping to make the world free of wildlife trafficking and human slavery,” said Steven Galster, Chair of Freeland.

Freeland supporters and partners can make their hotel bookings through Freeland’s website or directly with Goodwings at the following links:
