    With Love From Fishponds

    The Amazon rainforest is under constant threat from ever-increasing illegal deforestation, as thousands of trees are being illegally cut down or burnt every day. Through the People's University of Fishponds, our wider community is linking with the Surui tribespeople in Rondonia, Brazil who, as guardians of their forest, spend many months of the year growing saplings and re-foresting devastated land to save it for us all.

    The whole Surui tribe spend every year growing tree saplings, nurturing & planting them in areas which have been decimated by illegal loggers, and their reforestation efforts ensures the Amazon rainforest remains one of Earth's vital lungs to protect vital species and more ultimately, our global climate stability.

    We ask you to please give generously to save part of this vital rainforest in Rondonia which, being part of the wider Amazon rainforest, acts as a lung for the world. Our Fishponds Forest will be mapped on Google Earth within the Surui rainforest by the NGO Aquaverde who support the Surui and other communities across the world.

      Update: we're still a long way off my £3k goal, so I'd be really grateful if you would keep sharing this page with friends, family & colleagues. The £1,242.50 raised has already been donated to the Surui and will be funding the planting of 100 native trees over the winter. But that is a spit in the ocean of what's needed in the Amazon, so I'd really like to raise more money if at all possible. Please do also share this with the companies you work for, as they could donate as part of their CSR remit & sustainability goals. Many thanks.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    NB - the original page ended, so the £1,242.50 has already been given to the Surui tribespeople to plant 100 native tree saplings, however, I'm continuing to raise money until the end of Nov to hopefully raise £3000 for saplings which will be planted between Dec '22 and Mar '23.
