My wife and I have been donors to, and volunteers for, this organization since 2009. We believe in their mission and we feel their results have been a valuable use of our money and time. We are looking forward to further growth for this organization so that they can expand their projects, help more people and preserve more of one of the world's most precious resources, the Rainforests!
I have been involved with Rainforest Partnership (RP) since it began in December 2007. What I have loved most about the way RP works is that it truly partners with communities who want to save their rainforests. Meeting directly with people living in the forests and listening to what they want is a key part of developing the partnerships that result in sustainable economic projects that will survive and flourish long after RP moves on to work with other communities.
My name is Jordan Erdos and I am a co-founder and board member of Rainforest Partnership. When we decided to start up a new, international environmental non-profit in 2007, we knew we wanted to do things differently from the very respectable groups that are already out there. In the short time we have been around, we have already made great progress on a project in Chipaota, Peru, and have received a tremendous amount of support via in-kind contributions and pro-bono work from similar-minded citizens. Please visit our web site at http://www.rainforestpartnership.org and check us out on Facebook. It is through participation, not just contributions, that we can really work together to raise awareness about the role forests play in regulating the global climate.
