Dear Friends of Camino Verde,

Happy holidays!  Thank you so much for including Camino Verde in your giving in 2013.  Since our organization is small by design, your contributions make a huge impact on what we're able to accomplish.  2013 has been a great year for us, and 2014 is looking to be even more exciting.  Thanks for helping us plant trees and save virgin Amazonian rainforest!

You may have noticed that our project on GlobalGiving is very close to reaching it's fundraising goal!  This is exciting news, and we couldn't have done it without you.  I want to give you a heads up that because we are soon to be reaching our goal, we have posted a new project on GlobalGiving, and we'd love to have your continuing support through this transition.  It will mean a few clicks to switch your donations over to the new project.  Please take a second to check out the new project page now.

In the meantime, we're celebrating the successes we've had through our partnership with GlobalGiving.  Thanks to your support, GlobalGiving has labeled Camino Verde a Superstar organization. It's their highest rank!  Here are a few more amazing facts related to our time on GG so far:

•Since our first donation was received through GlobalGiving on November 29, 2010, we've received over 900 donations totalling $50,000 

•Contributions through GlobalGiving have helped us to plant 5,000 trees and save 200 more acres of Amazon rainforest.  It doesn't take a math wiz to see that we dramatically upped our initial project goals.

•Great beginnings-- When Camino Verde signed up for GlobalGiving, we ranked in the top 10 new projects on the site, again thanks to your support and donations

•In order to keep up with your support, we expanded our project budget and goals three times in the past three years.  Finally it feels like it's time to retire this awesome project and start a new one! Join us in making the new project on GlobalGiving as big a success as our previous one has been.

•Did you know? Camino Verde also has another project on GlobalGiving as well: Turning Carbon Footprints Into Healthy Soils is our response to linking agricultural solutions for tropical farmers to exciting and practical technologies for carbon capture.  Passionate about climate change? Check this project out.

Thank You once again for your support of our Amazon restoration work.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful new year,

Robin Van Loon
