Project Report | Jun 25, 2020
Forest Protectors Recieved Donations this Month

Forests protect species like this wild turkey

We hope this small report reaches you in health and good spirits. 

Around the globe, countries are suffering from COVID. Some are more affected than others, and internally, some people are much more vulnerable than others- and for different reasons.  Costa Rica is a country that depends on tourism for part of its income. Costa Rica has been very clear about protecting the population, so our borders and many businesses have been closed since the 18th of March. 

Of the 5 families we are helping in this project, one especially depends on tourism since they have been very successful with the reproduction of butterflies. Now this extended family is challenged to find ways to survive. 

Thanks to this project and your generosity, this month, we were able to distribute $315 to each of the five families. This amount represents 57% of our minimum wage ($548).  This is the second time we distribute the donations (which we accumulate until we have a lump sum). It was much appreciated, in a time when small businesses have been hard hit, and unemployment has reached the highest in the last 100 years: 12.5%. 

So we thank you, who have donated to this project at some point. Your recognizing and honoring those who protect forest for the global Earth community does go directly to these people, and becomes well- being for them. This is exactly the way it should be.
