With 2011 coming to an end, I’m very excited to announce that in just 13 months on GlobalGiving, Camino Verde has generated almost $30,000 towards planting trees and protecting wild lands of the Peruvian Amazon. 

As I write these words, Camino Verde staff are busy planting over 1200 trees in celebration of the start of the rainy season here in Tambopata, Peru.  Over a thousand trees this week—business as usual.  $30k in our first year on GlobalGiving?  Cause for celebration.

That’s why between now and January 31st, we will plant a tree for every new “like” on Camino Verde’s Facebook page.  As I write this, 2,072 people like CV.  In the next month and a half, let’s see how many trees we can get planted.  Spread the word.  Every person who clicks like on our page is one more tree planted in the Peruvian Amazon:  http://www.facebook.com/CaminoVerdePeru

Meanwhile, since our project’s duration has expanded to include all of 2012, I am once again raising our budget goal from the 30k of this first year to 50k, which we hope to hit by the end of 2012. 

And of course each time the budget expands, our objectives do as well.  The expanded budget includes planting another 1000 trees at Camino Verde’s center, as well as planting an additional 1000 trees with the participation of our neighboring farmers.  We are also continuing development of our on-site plant nursery, by the end of 2012 set to be fully functional for producing 2500 tree seedlings a year.

Thank you once again for your interest and support.  And have a wonderful holiday season.
