The lungs of the earth are on fire. The Brazilian Amazon is home to 1 million indigenous people and over 3 million species. The Amazonian region is a critical piece of the global climate solution that provides 20% of the world's oxygen and captures CO2 from our atmosphere aiding in the regulation of the planet's temperature. Our future, as well as the future of its inhabitants, depend on the preservation of the Amazon forest. 

We believe that by coming together as a collective group of donators we can have a greater impact and motivate those (like us) who feel like the actions of one are not enough. Any amount helps!

The funds collected will be donated to Instituto Socioambiental (ISA) and the Indigenous Confederation of the Brazilian Amazon (COIAB), the frontline brigades now fighting these fires to help them build political and technical capacity to continue to help preserve the forest in the future. We believe that empowering local indigenous communities is key to the success of forest preservation.

Other things you can do to help:

  • Be a conscious consumer and support the companies committed to responsible supply chain 
  • Reduce your consumption of meat and dairy. One of the leading costs for deforestation is the burning of land for cattle grazing and agriculture of animal feed.
  • Choose foods that opt for sustainable palm oil or even no palm oil at all. Palm oil is an easy ingredient to switch out and a huge cause of deforestation.
  • VOTE VOTE VOTE. VOTE for responsible leaders. VOTE with your DOLLARS!
