Jason Amis' Fundraiser:

La Tortuga Verde Sea Turtle Fund

My friend Tom is doing his best to help save the sea turtles that call El Salvador home. A few years ago Tom moved to El Cuco and opened La Tortuga Verde.
He saw that the locals were poaching the sea turtle eggs and selling them to local restaurants. He went on a mission, not only to save the turtles but to educate the youth in El Cuco and surrounding towns. Knowing that change will begin with the children.

Right now the poachers make $2.00 per dozen selling to the restaurants. Tom pays $2.50 per dozen, during the TogetherYoga autumn retreat the yogis purchased 23 dozen eggs and we could have bought more had the timing worked out. So I am starting this crowdrise call to action, I am hoping to collect as much money as we can for the turtle eggs between now and March 12th the day I leave for the spring retreat.

Please join us to help the symbol of Mother Earth. $2.50 is less than the cost of the morning latte. Just one coffee saves 12 sea turtles. I pledge that every cent you give will go directly to save the turtles. La Tortuga Verde may in future be able to offer US tax benefits for donations. For now, please give a little or a lot to help build the cause.
