Amazon Rainforest Fire Relief
The world came together to donate $1 Billion in 24 hours, after the Notre Dame fire — it’s time we did the same for the preservation of the Amazon Rainforest.
“One of the world's most valuable resources is the Amazon rainforest, which produces more than 20 percent of the planet's oxygen and is home to the most biodiversity in the world. But thanks to the way humans are treating the Earth, we're losing more and more of the Amazon every day,” Mark Pygas wrote on Upworthy.
Nature conservation is important to us here at GOOD & Upworthy because we believe in the preservation of nature and all that it affords humanity (health, comfort, beauty and even escape). We see it as part of doing GOOD.
Taking care of our planet is a responsibility we all share. We want to bring together like-minded individuals to take action around such an important issue. It's all about action and doing what we can, however we can, to make the change.
All donations will go to Conservation International to protect the rainforest. $25 = 1 acre protected. Let’s come together to defend our world’s most precious natural resource.
