Summary

12000 years ago humans started to farm. Since then nearly half the world's forests have disappeared. Scientists tell us planting trees is the quickest, most efficient, most cost effective way to avoid the devastating consequences of climate crisis. The goal: reforest 900 million hectares to capture 2/3rds of the carbon in the atmosphere. With your support, Iracambi has already planted 130,000 trees in the rainforest, and, as you read, we're planting another 10,000. We need your help.

Challenge

Deforestation and mismanagement have led to degraded soils, loss of biodiversity, and, severe stress on our water supplies. The "lungs of the world" are reaching the point of no return and, as weather patterns become increasingly erratic, everyone will suffer. Everywhere. Here in the Atlantic Forest local farmers are flooding us with demands to reforest their lands. We've already restored springs on eighty farms. But we have a long way to go, funds are short and time is running out.

Solution

No trees, no water. No water, no life. Whether you're facing water shortages in Rio de Janeiro or devastating wildfires in California, none of us is exempt. So we need to do two things. First spread the word and inspire thousands of people everywhere to plant trees and save the planet. Start with your network and you'll be surprised how many people you can reach. And second, plant trees, as many as you can, wherever you can. If you can't, support people who can. May we count on your donation?

Long-Term Impact

This is the most urgent crisis of our time but it's not too late to turn it around. Listen to the children and let's get to work! Because if we face this together and get those trees into the ground, do you have any idea what will happen? We'll increase the fertility of our soils, provide habitat for wildlife, store all that carbon, and ensure that we have clean air to breathe and pure water to drink. Nothing can be more important. Plant trees for water. Water for life. Hope for the future.
