Money sent to WLT and A Rocha via Big Give

A big thank you to all who have supported the Rainforest Fund, Settle over the past year - indeed over the past three years.

I was able to take opportunity of "The Big Give" last week and on the evening of Tuesday 6th  I paid in money that has been raised this year... The Big Give had matched funding - so (Thanks to other large donors) the value of the money has been doubled..

£700 to World Land Trust  (doubled to £1400 - so will save 14 acres of Rainforest)
£500 to A Rocha .. biggive (doubled to £1000) supporting forests, and resarch in forests in Peru, Brazil, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and India.

I was lucky to get through on Tuesday evening.- "The Big Give" was Monday to Friday last week. Lots of charities had encouraged their supporters to donate first thing on Monday at 10am - so of course the system went down on Monday morning. There was only so much matched funding available, after which each day, one could give, but not get the matched funding.

Please keep buying these greetings cards.. and donate and organise other projects to raise money. Once lost the species and habitats are gone - It is up to us to save them now!!.

The People at St John's Church Hartley Wintney, who are collecting money for A Rocha also managed to get their money - £100 - donated on that Tuesday too. Well done!
