I've followed Rainforest Action Network for many years, and supported as often as I can. In my opinion they are one of the very best conservation organizations in the world. The rainforests have a special place in my heart. RAN never gives up on protecting them and neither will I! With so many organizations out there it's hard to know who really makes a difference and isn't greenwashed. RAN can be trusted and that means everything at this critical juncture in conservation.
Your efforts on behalf of the environment and wildlife is what I look forward to seeing. RAN brings items to the forefront that traditional media does not. This allows one to contact legislators and governments to change laws.
RAN is a terrific grass roots organization that truly focus all their effort into curbing greenhouse gas emissions and stopping the destruction of rainforests around the world. The only slightly negative thing I can say about them is that their devotion to the cause may make their internal organization a little haphazard. I've had my member info mixed up with others, and they actually are kind of slow in follow up for membership renewal.
A very committed group that has always been on the right side of indigenous people, wild lands, and ecologically sound policies.
I have been involved with Rainforest Action Network for 17 years now. They are responsive to both their members, and the urgent issues facing us today. I feel that they maintain great character and integrity. It is important to recognize and support such organizations. Thank you, Amanda Amanda Kuchta
I feel privelaged to have been introduced to RAN in 2008 as I was recovering from cancer. I am the parent of a special needs child ,so I support alot of organizations. Global warming & the needless destruction of our Rainforests is something I have always been passionate about as I would like future generations to be able to enjoy this beautiful planet. The rate of destruction of our planet often frightens & leaves me feeling hopeless, but finding RAN has given me a renewed sense of hope for saving the planet. I have found the work done by the incredible people who are working for RAN to be selfless,committed,unyielding and passionate. The information supplied to the general public, such as myself , enlightens and warns of what might happen if the destruction of the rainforests continues yet they are so upbeat & positive THEY will overcome & succeed in stopping these crimes against nature you find yourself more mindful & encouraging everyone you know to join in this fight! I have many organizations to contribute funding to, especially being a cancer fighter & the parent of a mentally ill child, but RAN is always on the top of my list for continued financial support. I am confident every dollar I donate is spent in empowering this organization & not being wasted on the CEO flying first class to meetings like alot of other non profits I know about. In the short time I have been involved with RAN I am proud to say I have recruited about 150 people to join & become a part of RAN and have challenged people to donate. I even am working on getting my company to match donations made by employees to RAN, that is how affected & excited I have become about RAN.
