Happy Earth Week, everyone!

Its always Earth Day
Its always Earth Day

Dear Rainforest Champions,    

First of all we want to send you a big thank you for your amazing support to our tree planting activities. With your help. we´re restoring the magnificent Atlantic Rainforest, and every year we´re doing more and better. 

And, in case you hadn´t noticed it yet.... 

This is the week!

It´s Climate Action Week, and we´re inviting you to join us in saying a big, collective Happy Birthday to Planet Earth!

And we´re working on the best present we can think of  – our pledge to plant 55,000 trees by the end of next year.

ALL week, ALL donations are matched at 100% for the first $100! 

This is the first time this has ever happened on this platform. Thank you, GlobalGiving!  

And here´s an important note. The project that has been selected this year for the Climate Action Campaign is our sister program Forests4Water Community Climate Action so please make a donation there if you possibly can, because it will attract a match! 

A quick word on our goal of planting 55,000 trees. Our extraordinary and wonderful forestry mentor challenged us to up our forestry goal substantially. 

Why?

Because climate change won´t wait. 

We accepted the challenge, and we´re on the case. We have the land, we have community interest, we've been working hard on fundraising, and all we need is more cash to finance making and buying in the seedlings, and paying for the labor costs of planting and maintaining the baby trees.   

So how can you help?

There's a couple of different ways.
1. Make a donation if you can!

2. Spread the word among your friends, family, and colleagues, encouraging them to share our link on their networks and join you in donating.

Together we can get those trees planted, storing carbon, helping to mitigate the effects of global warming, extending habitat for rainforest animals, keeping zoonotic diseases where they belong, and doing our part to restore the earth.

So would you join us and make a donation towards planting fifty acres of rainforest?

Every donation this week is matched at 100% for the first $100!

Thank you all so much, and please stay safe,

Greetings, dear friends, donors and supporters wherever you may be!

Today´s the day!

We've set ourselves this goal in honor of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, and the urgent need to do something about climate change.

2. Spread the word among your friends, family, and colleagues, encouraging them to share our link on their networks and join you in donating.

Every day is Earth Day!

Every day is Earth Day
Every day is Earth Day

Hey there, friends, donors and supporters wherever you are on this beautiful earth! 

We hope you are doing well and that you can finally see light at the end of the covid tunnel? 

We want to remind you that next week is Earth Day. It´s not just Earth Day, it´s Climate Action Week (April 19-23) so let´s get busy! 

Because the climate crisis won´t wait.   

And because the earth does so much for us every minute of every day, we´d like to invite you to join us in giving her a big, beautiful present on her special day.  

Can you guess what it is?

No, it´s not the sort of present that comes gift wrapped with a big bow. It´s more like the gift that keeps on giving.

Here´s the scoop. We´re going to plant, not 10,000, not 20,000, not 30,000 but 55,000 rainforest trees by the end of next year. All part of restoring the majestic Atlantic Forest.

Fifty acres of rainforest. Storing carbon, providing clean air and fresh water, restoring habitat for forest animals and helping keep zoonotic dieases where they belong. Because when we destroy habitat, we increase the likelihood of these diseases spreading to humans. And causing a catastrophic pandemic like covid19 that spreads around the world like wildfire.

Together we can take steps to reverse global warming and help prevent another pandemic. How cool is that? 

So will you join us in saying a big thank you to this beautiful planet? Here´s how you can help. Would you be on for spreading the word in your networks of friends, family and colleagues, and asking them to join you in donating to the big birthday present for Planet Earth? All donations, whether one off or monthly, are matched at 100% for the first $100 - how about that for an easy way to double your impact?

Thank you so much, dear donors, please take care and we´ll talk soon,

with rainforest love from the Iracambi Tree Planting Team 

PS Don´t forget to tell everyone about the 100% matching funds! (Thank you, GlobalGiving!)
