This thread is to acknowledge those here that assist the Touch The Jungle program. Reading the other threads, you will realize what an awesome program this is, for saving REAL Rainforest.
Your assistance makes you personally, a vital part of this program.
Donation money ends up in entirety, in Ecuador, in the villager's hands, as US Dollars.
The US Dollars is strong in Ecuador, because the average income is so low there.
For instance, if the Playa de Oro villagers end up losing all of their crops due to this very recent flood disaster, then they are forced to go buy food. If they use US Dollars, they can buy at the closest market village and feed the entire village for a month,, for $200.00! They can hunt and fish for meat supplement.

I realize people get weary of being asked for donations, especially in this crappy economy, but this is a way for YOU to make a REAL difference in saving REAL rainforest. Touch The Jungle isn't just some "advocacy only" rainforest program. It is so real, that you yourself can actually go there and explore the jungle, and meet the villagers.
Where else can you help, and then actually go there and see what your help is actually doing?
Priorities at this time, for the village of Playa de Oro, is food and a boat motor. There is a PayPal button on the main page of this group, please go click and help in any way you can. Your name will be added to this thread.
If you are unable to help financially at this time, we will be starting another thread for other ways to assist this brilliant rainforest preservation concept.
