May 17, 2012

I just met with President Waller of Friends of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. She has been down to the rainforest many times and one time she saw a female quetzal and another time she saw a Giant Anteater, which was thought to be extinct. She showed me plaster casts of rainforest animal footprints like a huge tapir. It was amazing! President Waller told me that contributions to Friends of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest help buy more rainforest land and also to pay guards to protect the rainforest from poachers. The charity also funds repairs to equipment and the purchase of needed supplies. They get very small amounts of aid from the Costa Rican government. Most of their funds come from generous donors in order to reach their $200,000 goal for this calendar year. They want to buy another cool piece of property of at least 100 acres which will help them protect the water shed, quetzals, the three-wattle bellbird (the loudest bird in the world), and support a tree nursery. Originally started by lower school students in Sweden, this charity is now celebrating its 25th year with children from all over the world helping. Your donation is really appreciated. The rainforest thanks you!

I want to be an author/illustrator when I grow up. I love to swim, draw, write stories, play with my sister Hayley, and play with my best friends, especially Makenzie and Autumn. I also like to play the flute.
