BENEFITING: AMAZON WATCH
Hey guys, Josh Hedge here!
For my Birthday, I'd appreciate anything you'd be willing to give, be given to this charity. http://amazonwatch.org/
They are working towards protecting not only the Rainforests, but also the indigenous people who call those forests their ancestral homes. More and more, corporations are stealing the land out from under these people for logging, mining, oil and gas exploration, for clearing for corporate farm land, and for urban development. These people have lived in these forests their ENTIRE lives and through generations of their people. We see money as the key to everything, but what about those who don't USE money? In the end, it's those with millions vs. those who don't use currency at all, and it doesn't matter how many hundreds or thousands of years these people have lived in these forests, because there's still money to be dug up under the graves of their forefathers.
For my birthday, I only ask that you make a small donation to Amazon Watch. It could make a BIG difference for those who have nothing but a simple life, generations of tradition, and a forest that they call home. Thank you.
