Give Your Mom the Gift of the Rainforest this Mother’s Day!

Mother's Grove in the Children's Eternal Rainforest

This Mother’s Day, the Children’s Eternal Rainforest has set aside a Mother’s Grove within their 54,000 acres in Costa Rica to honor all mothers around the world who helped protect it. We invite you to give your mom the priceless gift of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest by making a donation to the Monteverde Conservation League US.  With your donation, you will receive a charming, printable PDF card that fits in an envelope to display your love and appreciation for your mother.  You may choose to donate $10, $25, $50 or $100. Thank you for your support and for helping us honor mothers around the world with the Mother’s Grove. The Children’s Eternal Rainforest would not exist without your generosity.

Monteverde Conservation League US is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Donate at the Network for Good.
