BENEFITING: Save the Frogs
EVENT DATE: Nov 14, 2013
It's my birthday November 14th and per usual I've picked a nonprofit to raise money for. There is no greater gift you can give me than to support organizations who do meaningful work to create a better world. This year I've decided to raise money for SAVE THE FROGS! My boyfriend Michael works for Save The Frogs, and through Michael I've learned how important frogs are to the world! I've seen how effective SAVE THE FROGS is with every dollar that's donated so would like to raise as much as possible to support their amazing work!
Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide and nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979 and this is not normal! Frogs and other amphibians face an array of threats from climate change to habitat destruction; pesticide use; over-collection for frog legs and dissections; invasive species; and infectious diseases spread by human activity. Frogs control insect populations, are bio-indicators, and look and sound cool!
Save The Frogs is the world's leading amphibian conservation organization. Their mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. They work in California, across the USA, and around the world to prevent the extinction of amphibians, and to create a better planet for humans and wildlife.
