BENEFITING: ECOLOGY PROJECT INTERNATIONAL
ORGANIZER: ECOLOGY PROJECT INTERNATIONAL
EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2015
After a year and a half with EPI, this organization has captured my heart. I love working for an organization that is doing good in the world and turning promises into action to promote positive change for generations to come.
This year marks EPI's 15th anniversary - 15 years of sending youth into the field for immersive science and conservation education, of teaching youth about the incredible ecology right outside their back doors, of connecting students, teachers, and scientists in six different countries.
This year, more than 5,000 students will join us in the field, and the majority of those kids are local teens who have never been on a field trip before. Never seen a live sea turtle. Never put their heads beneath the surface of the ocean, despite having grown up within sight of it. And we'll support the majority of them with scholarships that come from our incredible donors.
On our 15th anniversary, we want to join together to dream BIG and do BIGGER with a simple action: get 15 friends to donate $15. Let's help inspire teens to dream BIG, get them connected to nature, and empower them to do BIGGER and better things for our planet.
As a special thanks to all who help, every person who donates will get 15% off at the EPI store (with new swag coming soon!). Plus, you'll get my sincere thanks, and you'll inspire students and teachers throughout the U.S. and Latin America!
For 15 years, EPI’s mission has been to improve and inspire science education and conservation efforts worldwide through field-based student-scientist partnerships. To learn more, visit our CrowdRise Homepage or the EPI Website!
