The Rainforest Action Network (RAN) mobilizes communities with education, direct action, and grassroots campaigns to preserve forests, their inhabitants, and life-sustaining ecosystems in U.S., Indonesia, Japan, and other countries around the world. With today’s campaign, the RAN aims to enact its mission through three initiatives. Upon online redemption of this Groupon, G-Team donors can choose to direct their contributions toward one of the following:
Save Endangered Rainforests:
Pressures corporations and governments to improve practices and policies that affect rainforest ecosystems in Indonesia, which help act as the planet's lungs and support numerous species of wildlife.
Halt Climate Change:
Protests bank investments in fossil-fuel infrastructure including coal and oil. This initiative aims to improve community health and climate stability, and to inject the economy with clean-energy jobs.
Defend Human Rights:
Strengthens frontline communities and convinces global policy makers to entreat large corporations to enact policies that reduce toxic impact on the environment and people living in the Ecuadorian Amazon and Indonesian rainforests.
Join G-Team and donate $5, $10, or $25 to help the RAN improve corporate and government policies to protect the environment and human rights. If G-Team members raise $1,000, then the Rainforest Action Network can direct all funds raised to the donor's choice of initiatives, with matching donations up to $25,000 from an anonymous donor. Each additional $5, $10, or $50 raised will go toward funding the donor's choice of initiatives, and all unredeemed donations will be split equally among the three initiatives.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
All donations will be matched up to a $25,000 total by an anonymous donor.
