Peter Mackelworth, the Conservation Director of BWI, giving an honorary plaque to Break Time owners, Mirela Rus and Ionut Copoiu, for the contribution to the "Adopt a dolphin" program (May, 2022)
How can you contribute?
When you order a bracelet from our online shop or in our flagship store in Split, a percentage of each sale goes as a donation towards the Blue World Institute, so you are directly contributing to the research and conservation of marine life in the Mediterranean Sea.
For 2022/2023, we have donated 127 bracelets, retail value of 3048 Euros.
We are offering support for the "Adopt a dolphin" program of the Blue World Institute with a donation of 127 dolphin charm bracelets from our CHARMED collection. You will receive one of these bracelets (retail price 24 euros) if you choose the Basic Adoption package (45 Euros) for one of the Adriatic Sea dolphins that BWI is monitoring.
Until 2021, we have donated 14 thousand kuna (aprox 1900 Euros)
We started this partnership with a special Save Marine Life engraving that could have been ordered, and the proceeds from that engraving were fully donated to the Blue World Institute!
From the beginning of our partnership, our amazing customers ordered Save Marine Life engravings in total value of 11446,4 HRK and we donated to date a total of 14.000 HRK to Blue World Institute. Yes, we added a little extra to the sum we pledged to donate, to show our real support for the work this amazing Croatian research institute based in Velj Losinj island is doing. You can read all about them here. And the announcement of our cooperation is published on their website here.
Please find below a detailed situation of all the Save Marine Life engravings ordered on our website and in the Break Time shops in Croatia, and the donations towards Blue World Institute:
