Save the Amazon Rainforest from Fire
About this campaign
The Amazon rain forest is burning, which is sad enough due to the loss of so much plant and animal life that's unique to that region. The forest is also responsible for about 20% of the oxygen the world breathes, so this is not just a localized problem. This is bad for all of us.
I didn't know what I could really do to help, so I've created this fundraiser to support some of the people who can. The Amazon Conservation Association website describes themselves as follows: "Amazon Conservation Association (also known as Amazon Conservation) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been protecting the western Amazon for almost 20 years now. As conservation pioneers since 1999, we have used science to guide our multi-pronged approach to environmental conservation and restoration in Peru and Bolivia. Our founding program provided support for Brazil nut harvesters in Peru, as an incentive for protecting the forest. Since then, the organization has grown to protect over 4 million acres of rainforest, establish Peru’s first conservation concession, host thousands of scientists and tourists at our three premier biological stations, empower indigenous communities to develop forest-friendly livelihoods, and so much more."
Helping this fundraiser will not only help the forest monetarily since ALL proceeds are going directly to the Amazon Conservation Association, but wearing the shirt will help start conversations and raise awareness of the fire and what we can do to help.
