We hope you are doing well, and would like to thank you very much for your help!
We're here to tell you a little more about what happened during January. We’re almost done with the planting season but our team doesn't stop!
Behind the scenes, a lot happened. There were many adventures: with the heavy rains (which are great for plants, but tough for humans), there were floods, and stuck truckswhich needed to be rescued by tractors, but everybody helped out to get the job done. . And as our goal is very big (35,000 trees), we really needed people who don’t mind getting their hands dirty! .
We need every available vehicle to get these seedlings up to the steep slopes to the planting sites and sometimes even the Land Rover couldn’t make it and we had to use donkeys! .
Despite the difficulties, it’s always fun, and i's amazing what we can do when we come together.
So thank you for being part of it!
Lots of rainy rainforest hugs,
The Iracambi team.
Cheers to another year! We are wishing all the wonderful thing to you and your loved ones on the new year.
To start off 2023 on the right foot, we want to take a moment to say a big thank you for supporting us to restore the beautiful Atlantic Rainforest.
Your support makes it possible for us to spend our daysrolling up our sleeves, collecting the seeds, taking care of the seedlings, nurturing them as they grow and then planting them out. We can't think of a better way to spend our time!
And this year, we're dreaming higher than ever and aiming to plant 125,000 trees in 2023-24 and together we're going to make it happen, because of supporters like you, who are important members of our team, and deserve a huge thank you for making a difference in the world!
We wish you all a year full of happiness, fun, and success.
The Iracambi Team
As the holiday season approaches, we take time to reflect upon the good things we have… like your continued support and partnership! We appreciate working with you to restore our beautiful Atlantic Rainforest!
We also have in our core that we need to keep working to protect biodiversity and to guarantee a bright new future for the world, as well as wishing all the hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you happiness and success, where we can thrive as this big (and global) community we are inserted in.
Please, keep in mind our goal for next year: to plant 125,000 trees, create a pilot project of Agroforestry, and a lot more. And we will need your help to achieve all that!
But for now, we wish you and all your loved ones the gift of health, happiness, faith, warmth, happiness, peace on Earth, good cheer, giving, and hope.
To a cheerful season,

Dear [donor first name],
In our last report, we let you know that Giving Tuesday was coming, on November 29, and during that day we were able to raise some funds that will be used for the continuity of our projects next year!
We also have to tell you that Iracambi participated in the IV Brazilian Conference on Ecological Restoration (SOBRE 2022), the biggest event on restoration in our country, which has been consolidating itself as a reference space for discussing the challenges of restoration in Brazil - this year's theme was “Multifunctional Restoration and Climate Change”.
Iracambi was represented by Luiz, the project coordinator, who shared experiences in the field of forest restoration among our partners! It was AMAZING and it showed us that we’re not alone in doing our part… that everyone can be helpful when it comes to saving the world. Let’s move forward on the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration!
Besides all that news, our incredible team wanted to remember that our crazy goal of planting 55,000 trees is on its way and we will be finished by the end of the rainy season and your incredible gift supported us to reach that mark!
As we arrive in the season of the winter holidays and as you unpack your Christmas cards, you might consider keeping in mind some of our goals for next year: to plant 125,000 trees, create a pilot project of Agroforestry, and a lot more.
And we will need your help to achieve all that!
But for now, we will keep wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!
We hope your holiday celebrations are full of lots of fun, surprises, and magic!
To a cheerful holiday season!
The Iracambi team.
Dear wonderful donors,
Greetings from the rainy rainforest, and a big shoutout for your amazing support to our forestry program!
Check out our short video on the link below to see what is REALLY going on down in the rainforest!
And here’s a headsup. Tomorrow, November 29th, is Giving Tuesday,
As we've been following events at COP 27, we've been excited, challenged and reassured to see the growing interest among people from all backgrounds and many different countries, all coming together to actually do something about the climate before it's too late.
And we're particularly happy to see the emphasis on nature based solutions, including forestry. Not only for capturing carbon, but also for protecting biodiversity, restoring soils and water and creating sustainable livelihoods into the bargain.
So, friend, we're on track, and together we're getting it done.
Please donate tomorrow, November 29th if you possibly can, and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join you. Together we can make a healthy future for everyone, everywhere.
With kind hugs and warm hearts.
The Iracambi team.
