Save The Frogs Day Rally in Washington DC - April 29!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Please join me and fellow SAVE THE FROGS! supporters in Washington, DC on the 3rd Annual Save The Frogs Day (Friday April 29th)! We
will be gathering at the steps of the US Environmental Protection Agency to raise awareness of frog extinctions and demand a federal ban on Atrazine, the 21st Century's DDT. Atrazine turns male frogs into females at 2.5 parts per billion, and eighty million pounds of it are dumped into American ecosystems each year. The rally will take place from 11am to 1pm, and then we will head to Lafayette Park in front of the White House to celebrate. I will provide a keynote presentation. All ages are welcome to attend. We'll see you in Washington, D.C. on April 29th! Please spread the word far and wide!
If you would like to volunteer at the DC Rally, please fill out the volunteer application form at http://savethefrogs.com/volunteers -- we could use your assistance! We seek general assistance as well as an experienced photographer at the event.

Thanks to Paul Sullivan for writing this great article about SAVE THE FROGS!. "I read the article and to be honest the facts in it scare the hell out of me and hopefully will do the same to other people, forcing them to change their ways fast." -- Glenn Burkett, Toronto
Please donate: help us get Atrazine banned!!!
Our campaign to ban the use and production of Atrazine will not be easy: Syngenta, the company that produces it, has $11 billion in revenues and a strong lobby in Washington DC. Your generous financial support will help us educate Americans about the harful effects of Atrazine, and enable us to promote and coordinate the Save The Frogs Day Rally and publicize our efforts.
SAVE THE FROGS! is less than three years old: we receive no government or foundation money. Over 95% of our funding comes from individuals like you. That means YOUR SUPPORT makes the SAVE THE FROGS wheels turn! Thanks!!!
All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
