Blood diamonds are no longer the reality in Sierra Leone but development
and environmental issues abound. Instead of banning diamonds, One Sky
and the Conservation Society of Sierra Leone are challenging you to buy
a “green” diamond by supporting environmental restoration
of alluvial diamond mining areas in Sierra Leone.
Interested in buying a diamond?
Why not add value to it by donating 1% of its value to One Sky and the
Conservation Society of Sierra Leone to tint it “green”. All
of your donation will go directly into restoring alluvial diamond sites
in the Kono region of Sierra Leone with active community involvement.
Already own a diamond?
Has your diamond lost its shine?
Bring back the feeling...make your gem sparkle with a green diamond
Remind her who she fell in love with...
And how much you care...
Not interested in diamonds but care about people and the planet?
Donate what you can toward mining restoration in Sierra Leone. When donating
to the Green Diamond campaign, all of your funds will go directly toward
improving the livelihoods and the landscape of Sierra Leone.
A blood diamond is for never
A green diamond is for life.
For all of these donations, we will send you a certificate in your name
of choice to certify that you have helped ‘green’ diamonds
by supporting our work in Sierra Leone. If you’re interested, we
will send you an electronic update in December 2007 with photos on how
your donations have helped improve the environment and livelihoods.
Want to visit the area and participate yourself? One Sky is offerring
a world tour in April 2008. For more information or for our brochure,

You can also mail donations by cheque or money order to One Sky at Box
3352, Smithers, BC V0J 2N0 Canada. A Green Diamonds certificate will be
returned to you to acknowledge your generous contribution.
