Planned Foresthood- Save the Rainforest

Fundraising Goal



16% of Goal

Hi Friends! The Amazon rainforest was formed about 55 million years ago and it's estimated the Amazon basin is home to approximately 390 billion trees. While the rainforest might seem a world away to most of us it is home to 1/5 of all freshwater on the earth, produces 20%of the atmosphere's oxygen, and has over 6 million different species wandering under its vast canopies. Without a mostly intact Amazon basin with it's regenerative qualities for oxygen, fresh waters, and medicine producing plants the world we live in would be a much different place. We, humans, humanity, are currently the biggest threat to the survival of the world's rainforests. We burn over 78 million acres per year and more than 50% of the is already gone. The land is then used for farming and cattle production. While this current use of the forest may solve a short term problem for the survival of the forest, it ignores the global implications of a diminishing resource. My teammates and I have teamed up with The Adventurists and Cool Earth to raise awareness and funds to help stop the mass destruction of this precious resource. Please consider a donation in any amount to help us reach our goal. Thanks for your help! Art, Julia, and Lori
