Avoid the crowds. Buy a piece of rainforest for Christmas!
After Black Friday's perhaps overzealous shop fest, maybe you are a somewhat wearied by the idea of heading into the malls for another dose of heady consumerism.
We can save you the trouble if you consider an alternative gift this year.
At SavingSpecies, we have a wonderful project in Colombia to save and restore vital habitat for amazing orchids and hummingbirds. Sooo, here's the suggestion. Instead of yet another tie, CD, perfume, etc. buy your loved one, family member or colleague a piece of Colombian rainforest!
A gift of $80 will buy an acre of land that we'll restore on your behalf, creating beautiful rainforest for countless unique and gorgeous orchids and hummingbirds. Even better, because the reforestation is a carbon sink, you are offsetting your carbon footprint. With the $80 land purchase your gift recipient will be carbon neutral for 10 years! Your donation made through our partner, the Environmental Media Association in Hollywood is fully tax-deductible so if you donate today you'll get a tax benefit before the end of the year. (Click donate button below.)
Bear in mind that neither EMA nor SavingSpecies takes a cent in overhead. All donations go entirely to the purchase of land. Check out the project page for a satellite pic of the exact piece of land you are helping to buy.
If you have any questions, thoughts, suggestions, please get in touch through the SavingSpecies contact page.
