Gifts for Good

Dear friends of the Amazon,

In the past you've helped us to protect more rainforest and plant more trees. Now and until Mother's Day, we've found a special way to thank you for your contributions. Through GlobalGiving's Gifts for Good program, starting today, Monday, April 15th, for each donation of $40 or more we're pleased to offer you a beautiful palm-fiber handicraft created by our native friends and partners in the Peruvian Amazon.  (See photos below.)  

These hotpads can go on your table or be hung on your wall as a work of art. They're made with nothing but rainforest ingredients, including the all-natural dyes.  And in honor of Mother's Day, each of these crafts was made by a mother, and a part of your donation will go to these indigenous master craftswomen and their communities.

Thank you once more for supporting Camino Verde and our work reforesting the Amazon.  And enjoy the beauty of the Amazon's wise, skilled artisans while helping to plant more trees.

Warm greetings to you and an early salute to all the mothers in your life.
