Go Solar with Sungevity and support frog conservation
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
SAVE THE FROGS! has partnered with the award-winning home solar company Sungevity to offer a great way for you to go solar while raising $1,000 for SAVE THE FROGS!. Here's how it works:
Sungevity puts solar panels on your house when you sign up for a solar lease.
You pay Sungevity on a monthly basis for your home solar lease, up to 15% less than what your pre-solar electric bill used to be.
Sungevity gives you $1,000 in a Visa gift card.
Sungevity donates $1,000 to SAVE THE FROGS!.
- Act fast because after October 31st, the payout drops to $750.

A letter from Kaitlyn Bryer - Age 11
"Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this letter, I am Kaitlyn Bryer and I am eleven years old. Donating to SAVE THE FROGS! would not only help frogs but all of the enviroment as well. Frogs are very important creatures on this planet. One third of the world's amphibians are terribly endangered, and in the past 30 years, 200 species are already extinct, this is not normal. SAVE THE FROGS! will put every penny of your very helpfull money to a good cause. So please consider donating to SAVE THE FROGS! and remember a little bit of money could make a huge difference!"

SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Wins Grant for Frogmeat Work
Congratulations to SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana for winning a grant for £6,000 (US$9,700) from the Rufford Small Grants Foundation to slow down frogmeat eating and trade in Northern Ghana. The Rufford-funded project is one year-long and has two phases – recording what kinds of frogs and what quantities are harvested or traded; and raising public awareness of the threats frogs are facing. The project covers Northern Ghana.
SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana still needs your financial support for its many other projects. If you would like to become a patron, please email us for more information. Thank you!
"Hi Mr. Kriger, I want to personally express my appreciation to you for the good job you are doing to save humanity and more importantly our environment. I have now an in-depth knowledge about our activities that have the potential to affect other lives around us. I would be glad to play any advocacy role in championing the cause of safe environmental practices that will not endanger any species on planet earth. It takes people like you and your partners to awaken in us the very existence of our being and the crucial role other species play to make our lives worth living. Although I have not yet registered as a member of the Ghana branch of Save The Frogs International, I can proudly say I am a member already! I wish you safe journey every where you go. Once again, congratulations. Sincerely yours."
