To soak in nature. To be moved and inspired. We are grateful to Finley for sharing this powerful feeling and for helping all of us to work together to do what we can for the environment. Thanks to the generosity of so many, today we are able to announce $50,000 in grants distributed to 5 organizations that are living, breathing, assemblies of people making a huge impact on the planet.
In addition to continuing our support to The Green Belt Movement, The Cacapon Institute, Cool Earth, and Rainforest Trust, we are so excited to announce this year that Finley will be helping to heal the ocean she loved so much through a grant to the Pristine Seas project.
We’ll be adding information on Pristine Seas to the Finley’s Green Leap Forward website over the coming week where you can also read about the great impacts of these other hard working organizations:
