2020 marks the 75-year anniversary of Tove Jansson publishing her first Moomin novel. To celebrate this Moomin Characters Ltd is launching the #OURSEA campaign in collaboration with the John Nurminen Foundation. Funds will be raised via direct donations and campaign products, where part of the product price will go towards the campaign.
Makia is participating in the Moomin 2020 #OURSEA campaign for the protection of the Baltic Sea, with a series of three light merino wool beanies. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the John Nurminen Foundation.
The John Nurminen Foundation is a Finnish maritime organization with a mission to save the Baltic Sea and its heritage for future generations. The aim of the #OURSEA campaign is to raise awareness of the condition of the Baltic Sea and gather funds for the Foundation’s work to save the sea and its vibrant culture.
