December 2006 E-Newsletter of the Monteverde Conservation League U.S., Inc. (MCLUS)
Wow again! Tom Newmark of New Chapter organic vitamins has offered the BEN a wonderful deal. We let him give us money, and all we have to do is smile and say “thank you.” Tom has already raised $20,000 by a promotion through natural food stores that carry his product. He hopes to raise much more to help us continue to purchase land that is needed to protect the borders of the BEN and buy some remaining interior pieces. Thank you, Tom Newmark and New Chapter.
