I love SAVE THE FROGS! They run campaigns to get harmful pesticides banned, protect land, get dissections out of schools and frog legs out of restaurants. And they organize Save The Frogs Day, which gets educational events going in about 40 countries! Nobody does a better job advocating for the frogs and educating people about protecting the environment than SAVE THE FROGS!

SAVE THE FROGS is fantastic! They coordinated April 30th's Save The Frogs Day, which was the largest day of amphibian education in the planet's history, over 20 countries took part!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see their new articles all over the place...they're getting the word out about amphibian extinctions...and ways people can help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the university students involved!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They really get people involved, by providing free materials, and ideas on how everyone can contribute.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Really intelligent.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make sure every kid in America grows up loving frogs!

Ways to make it better...

My experience has been great!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Fundraising during a recession, and with so many other environmental catastrophes going on! Everyone should donate to SAVE THE FROGS, even if its only $20.

One thing I'd also say is that...

SAVE THE FROGS PEOPLE!!!

I am astonished by what I recently learned about Save The Frogs.com. There is no transparency about donations. Kerry, the founder, provides no info on how money is spent, and he does seem to use donations to pay his personal room and board and personal expenses. I am disgusted and will no longer donate to this sickening charade.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning about the founders squandering of donations for his personal gain

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask for transparency of donations received and for the founder to return the money he used.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How low a human being can sink to squander money intended for a good cause

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dishonest

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy the founder a new home and car for himself

Ways to make it better...

I knew that my donations and others went to the cause of saving frogs instead of paying for the founder's lifestyle

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

honesty and transparency

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization should really be investigated thoroughly

This post is blatantly incorrect, posted by an angry person whose hastily-written proposal was not granted funds from SAVE THE FROGS!. All SAVE THE FROGS! financial information is publicly available at www.savethefrogs.com/who-we-are

SAVE THE FROGS is the only organization of its kind...a grassroots movement working to protect the world's frogs, which are rapidly going extinct. I love them!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Save The Frogs Day! It's the world's largest day of amphibian education...and the best chance we have of getting people working to help these defenseless creatures.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Move the organization to my state!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are completely original, and always get people motivated.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely intelligent...all their work is based in the latest science.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Purchase a lot of rainforest.

Ways to make it better...

I had time to volunteer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Growing and finding funding in this economy!

One thing I'd also say is that...

SAVE THE FROGS!

Dr. Kriger is an amazing man, doing work in the field of amphibian ecology, in particular, with frogs. The website is a veritable wealth of information, and as a Teacher-Librarian, I find it a very useful place to guide children's awareness of the plight of frogs worldwide. I can't say enough about how happy I am to have found his cause, and to be able to contribute and help in whatever way possible to Save the Frogs. It is imperative that we make every effort to do just that, as it affects the balance of nature up and down the ecological spectrum. Kudos to Dr. Kriger and his team. If I lived in the Bay area of California, I would be more than happy to volunteer where needed. rhiannyn grahame

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

having a fabulous website to refer to for information.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

and no doubt would, not only make tremendous strides in saving frogs, it would likely help other animal species that are in crisis.
