We need your support to GROW these contests!
Saving the frogs and protecting earth's wildlife will only be possible if we get kids excited about environmental protection. SAVE THE FROGS! contests do just that...and the poems and artwork we receive go into books and merchandise we use to raise money for our worldwide amphibian conservation efforts. That means the more popular the contests become, the better for everyone involved...and for the frogs!
To date, these contests have grown with essentially no promotion and no budget. We want to step it up a big notch in 2011, and need your support to make this happen. Please place a tax-deductible donation to SAVE THE FROGS! so that we can permeate the schools of the world with SAVE THE FROGS! contests. Thank you!
Thanks for your support!
Have a great weekend!
