TO OUR OLD FRIENDS:   

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!   BY MATCHING YOUR LAST DONATION TO MWCT HERE YOU ARE HELPING US COMPETE TO WIN THE MOZILLA / FIREFOX HOLIDAY CHALLENGE. 

A $25,000 PRIZE FROM MOZILLA ... AND WE INTEND TO WIN IT!

TO NEW FRIENDS READING ABOUT US FOR THE FIRST TIME:

YOU PROBABLY CLICKED ON EDWARD NORTON'S PHOTO ON THE MOZILLA CHARITY CHALLENGE TO CHECK OUT WHAT THE CAUSE HE'S BACKING IS ALL ABOUT AND...HOPEFULLY...JOIN OUR TEAM.

HE IS ONE OF OUR MOST LOYAL SUPPORTERS AND BOARD MEMBERSSO WE'LL LET HIM DO THE TALKING.

HERE'S HIS LETTER:

The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is a fantastic organization that, to me, represents the cutting edge of the effort we need to all make to bring human needs and environmental sustainability into harmony with each other.  

MWCT works to protect the legendary ecosystems and astounding wildlife of East Africa through conservation programs that directly benefit local Maasai communities....and what I love about MWCT and think makes it really important is that they're showing that it doesn't have to be Nature vs People anymore.

I can see why people would say, “Why work on something so far from home in such an exotic and remote place?” or “What do the Maasai people and African wildlife and wilderness have to do with our lives and our challenges?”

My answer is that every day we learn more about how interconnected the natural systems on the planet are and recognize even more clearly that we all rely on healthy ecosystems to support our lives...even ones that are far away from where we live.   Figuring out how poor people in developing countries can thrive and grow without destroying some of the world's most important natural resources is going to be one of the great challenges of the 21st Century.

You can read in detail about everything the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust does just by clicking here.

I think this is our generation's greatest challenge...I really do.  And I believe that supporting this effort will tune you in to the details of how that challenge is going to actually be met.

If you join the team and contribute what you can, I give you my personal commitment that we'll stay in close touch with updates from me and the rest of the team, let you know about fun contests and prizes for our supporters and as we build out our new website with help from our friends at Google Earth you'll be able to track the impact of your support in really fun, direct way.

Even better, if you donate at least $33, you’ll get entered win 2 tickets to the Bourne Legacy Premiere. Scroll down for all the rules. 

Thanks so much

Edward Norton

Not just as humans but as people, I believe we are the most influential part of the World Eco System. I have a terminal illness but that is just physical. There are people who do not know the meaning of hope. G.B. JCLOM 2 years ago
