Dear GlobalGiving Community,
We are so excited to participate in GlobalGiving’s July Bonus Day on July 20th!
We have noticed that some of our wonderful donors are still giving to our recently completed project on GG. We ask you to now direct your donations to our new project: Regenerate the Peruvian Amazon!
But why now? What is the July Bonus Day?
- $400,000 is available in Matching Funds for participating projects!
- 30% match on donations from $100 - $499 (while funds remain)
- 40% match on donations from $500 - $749 (while funds remain)
- 50% match on donations from $750 - $1,000 (while funds remain)
- Donations up to $1,000 per unique donor per organization will be matched (while funds remain)
Your support is our bread and butter and supports our regenerative programming. Last year you helped us to:
- Plant 150,000 trees
- Support programming with over 100 Amazonian families participating, 5 participating native communities, and 2 mestizo communities
- Plant 400 species of Amazonian trees
- Establish 4 native tree nurseries in 2 regions of the Peruvian Amazon
- Plant 15,000 endangered rosewood trees
- Conserve 70 hectares of primary forests and restoration areas
The goals of our new project, Regenerate the Peruvian Amazon! are to:
- Generate long-term sustainability with rainforest communities through “keystone” tree species like rosewood, planted in highly diversified agroforestry systems
- Grow our agroforestry livelihood programs with more native communities in 2 regions of the Peruvian Amazon: Going from 100 participating families to 250 in the coming 3 years
- Plant more native trees on deforested lands in the Peruvian Amazon: 75,000 trees a year (or more, as funding permits)
- Protect and conserve more acreage of pristine rainforest (we have a preliminary offer on an additional area of 16 hectares!)
We are especially requesting Recurring donations to our new project because even small recurring monthly donations allow us to more clearly plan activities months in advance. Rather than giving one time, consider splitting up your donation over the year! With a recurring donation of as little as $10 a month over the course of a year, you really do help bring stability to our financial planning. Give to Regenerate the Amazon today!
We are infinitely grateful for your support! Together we can Regenerate the Amazon!
