I am running my first ever half-marathon on May 1st, 2016, in honor of Rainforest Trust! The marathon is called Earth Rock Run, and it is 13.1 miles long! Please consider making a donation to my cause!
Why? Because rainforests are the lungs of the earth, cleaning the air of carbon dioxide. Since rainforests grow year-round, not just seasonally, they absorb an enormous amount of carbon dioxide. They are also home to beautiful, diverse species of animals and plants.
Finally, there is evidence to suggest that rainforests help mitigate the spread of viruses, and they contain cures for many diseases, some undiscovered. For these reasons and more, I would love to help the Rainforest Trust continue its magnificent work preserving the world’s rainforests.
A top-rated charity by Charity Navigator, I can’t think of more efficient and trustworthy organization to support.
