Rainforest Partnership gives me muscle. With every cent (and every minute) I donate to this incredible organization, I know that the people of the rainforests will be able to save their cherished world. You see, I am just one person. I can't reach across the world and empower indigenous people to take back the land that has been their home since time began. I can't make sure the governments of countries that envelope our rainforests know of the sensible ways to keep them safe from destruction. But I can donate to the Rainforest Partnership and accomplish these herculean tasks. It's amazing that my small donations enable me to be part of something so very strong.

I must say as of this date I am impressed with what they have accomplished. In the trying economic time that we are in, the ability to fund and complete the projects they have is quite impressive. They are a youthful organization, not in just in age of personal, but in history of accomplishment. They have performed quite admirably. I would recommend that they, if they do not now, create communication and links with other such related organizations. Should they find similar, which I believe they will, then a collaborative effort could be established. In doing so, they may open the funding opportunities and also expand the attendant Global influence. This would seem to be an opening of the avenue of Foundation support. Sustainability through cooperation is the lasting element of the desire. I wish them success and will continue to support.
