MCLUS E Newsletter November 2008

Happy Thanksgiving!!

And Thanks to all our Children Partners
Children all across the United States have initiated different ways to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. They have worked together as school classrooms, as a student council, as home school groups, and as just individual devoted kids who banded together with a mutual love of the forest and wanted to do something to help. We, here at MCLUS, are so grateful for their efforts and creativity on behalf of the BEN (Bosque Eterno de los Niños). We can’t say “Thank you” enough. Have a great Thanksgiving being grateful that the BEN is protected and growing with support of young people!!

“Walking with Animals” home school group in New York holds an annual Bake Sale to benefit the BEN.

“The Tree Frogs” in Denver sell original Tshirts, frog necklaces, Save the Rainforest wrist bands and got their Student Council to sponsor a penny drive all to benefit the BEN.

Kids in Illinois created a beautiful quilt and got sponsors from local businesses to benefit the BEN.

First graders in Illinois sold smiles to benefit the BEN. What a great idea!

Kids use their math skills to raise money for the BEN.

The “Forever Forest Group” in Missouri made beautiful notecards from their own photos and drawings after going to the BEN to raise awareness and dollars for the BEN.

This young man has been contributing to the BEN since he was a little kid, selling all kinds of his invented products including Beanie Baby sleeping bags and reusable cup labels, selling “gently used” toys and books, accepting donations, organizing class fundraisers at his school, and teaching folks about the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. Whenever someone gives him money as a gift, he gives part of it to the rainforest. His trip to the BEN with his family years ago inspired him to help out.

Needed: $500,000 to purchase essential next piece of land in the biological corridor.
