Wow what a journey! Okay, I …
Wow what a journey! Okay, I know you’re like “but she hasn’t even gone to Peru yet”, but this is the big hurdle! Seriously if you’ve never tried fundraising before, give it a shot! It definitely taught me many things and made me step far out of my comfort zone.

First and foremost, I would like to say thank you so much for your individual support. Knowing others care deeply about the important things and have some grasp of the inextricable interdependencies between social, economic, and environmental issues gives me hope for the future. Knowing you believe in this mission and me is a tremendous source of strength.

There are two days left in my PwP Facebook campaign, and I hope you will support me until the very end. Here is a way you can easily show you support Paddling with Purpose, and keeping the largest river in the world wild, free, and healthy:
• For the next two days, visit my page EVERY DAY. Blow up those PwP posts with comments, likes, and shares. That enables more people to see it.
• If you want to make an additional difference, spread the word. Friends, family, colleagues. This is not just another typical dam construction project.

If I reach my campaign goal, I can start focusing my energy and time where it is really needed…project management, research and storyline development. Make no mistake, these dams are not about improving economies and increasing energy, they are about harnessing resources and people to create massive profits for a few.

You PwPrrrrsss rock,

You Pwpers!!! Thank you so …
You Pwpers!!!
Thank you so much for joining the Paddling with Purpose tribe! Your support gives me hope for a better future for all of us.

But that’s not all…
These are just some of the things your donation enables:
• Film documentation of the resources and people along the Grand Canyon of the Amazon that will be lost (resources) or displaced (people) if the dams are constructed,
• dissemination of scientific information to Peruvian volunteers so they can collect data and monitor their resources
• training Peruvians in whitewater safety, rafting and kayaking so they can initiate sustainable eco-tourism businesses…this means one day you can visit and go rafting or have a guide service to make your vacation easier!
• a massive effort to create media publicity with the end goal of inciting a nation to defend its fishing (often top 3 in the world) and sustainable floodplain agriculture industry
• the potential to stop massive increases in release of methane gases from newly constructed reservoirs, a major contributor to climate change. This affects you, your taxes, and "your backyard"!

Your donation, no matter the amount, was and is critical to this grassroots project. How can you continue to help? 1) Stop by my Facebook page every day for the next two weeks, and like, share, and comment on my posts (my campaign ends May 8th), 2) talk to your friends about PwP, and 3) if you’re really passionate and are having a dinner party or hosting an event, dedicate it to benefit PwP by asking each person for a $10 donation. At a minimum, the attention on Facebook boosts the post’s visibility in my friend’s News Feeds (unfortunately I now know way more about Facebook than I ever wanted to!), so more of my network will see it and it will remind the procrastinators to put some drops in the bucket;). When you share links or images, you can copy and paste the post’s text, or write up your own.
I believe we can make a real difference in Peru, and if so, you are a major reason why.
Cheers to you, free-flowing rivers, and your dedication to a happy healthy future!
