When you save a forest, you save a lot more than a tree... You save yourself and every single being that dwells on this planet!

BENEFITING: CHOPRA FOUNDATION

ORGANIZER: CHOPRA FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

CHOPRA FOUNDATION wrote -

There is a Cree proverb that says, “Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.”

Let’s all heed the foretelling of the Cree and become part of the solution. Show that we are aware that organisms and the environment are one process, trees are our lungs, rivers and waters and oceans are our circulation, the earth recycles as our physical body. Let us show in action that we know we are one ecosystem. Let us not let the Earth become uninhabitable."

Our lives are interconnected with the planet. In fact, forests are like the lungs of the Earth — inhaling carbon dioxide and exhaling oxygen that we all need to survive. Destroying forests releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year than all of the planes, trains, cars, trucks and ships — combined. People all over the world — from rural communities to the biggest cities — are affected by global deforestation. Your support will go toward helping Conservation International protect the places where we can make the greatest impact, putting good conservation practices in place for the long term.

We call it the environment, but that's the wrong word. It's our extended body. We have a “personal body” and a “universal body”, and they're both equally ours. When we have that experience, that knowledge, it will become impossible for us to hurt the earth. So my friends, don't choose the word 'environment"; look at the earth as your mother from where you were born, and also remember that all its beautiful forests, its flowers and gardens, its trees, its atmosphere, its rivers -- they're all a part of our own biological organism. Love her... as you love yourself.

Forests need our protection. Every acre of forest lost in a faraway place will affect you, and me, and everyone else. What is lost "there" is truly felt "here." Please join me in helping to stop deforestation by Protecting an Acre of forest land with Conservation International.
