With Greenpeace your Will really makes waves

Page - February 25, 2016
We are custodians of the planet for but a moment in history. We inherit the earth from our ancestors and in turn bequeath it to future generations.

Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza and her inflatables , try to hinder the shooting and eventual transfer of a minke whale by the Yushin Maru No.2 catcher ship. After two and a half hours of running the gauntlet between the harpoon and the whale the activists witnessed the eventual kill of the whale. Greenpeace is using every peaceful means available means to bring the hunt to an early end and make it the last time the Sanctuary is breached by the whalers.

Making a Will. Doesn’t sound exciting, does it?

But if you’ve cheered on as Greenpeace chase after whaling boats, climb power plant chimneys and face all sorts of dangers to defend the natural world - or if you’ve joined in protests yourself - why stop?

A gift in your Will means you’ll still be standing up to the environmental criminals, still be protecting our precious oceans and forests, still be preserving species and making all our lives better, even when you’re gone.

So go on, be a rebel. Remember Greenpeace in your Will.

If you do decide to make this special kind of gift to Greenpeace, it’s important that you use our full legal name so your gift can go towards helping Greenpeace campaigns:

Greenpeace New Zealand Incorporated

And in case it’s useful, an example of the wording you could use is below:

“I give to Greenpeace New Zealand Incorporated ___% of my estate OR the rest and residue of my estate OR the sum of $_____ for its general purposes free of probate and estate duties payable upon or in consequence of my death. I declare that the receipt of its Executive Director, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.”
