Join SAVE THE FROGS! in Washington DC for the International Day of Pesticide Action - October 12th, 2013
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the goal of the International Day of Pesticide Action (October 12th, 2013) is to raise global awareness of the threats to wildlife and humans caused by society’s increasing use of harmful pesticides. SAVE THE FROGS! and our supporters will be leading a rally in downtown Washington, DC and we want you to join us there! There are over 18,000 registered pesticides in the USA, and over a billion kilograms of pesticides are sprayed worldwide annually. Pesticides contaminate our tap water and food supplies, poison our streams, and cause health problems for aquatic wildlife as well as farmworkers and millions of humans living near agricultural areas. Please join SAVE THE FROGS! in Washington DC this October 12th or help us raise global awareness by holding an educational event in your school or community! Learn more and RSVP for the DC Rally at: www.savethefrogs.com/action
We need YOUR help to fund the International Day of Pesticide Action. We need to raise money to create educational materials; to pay for the Washington DC permits; and to promote and coordinate the rally, which will raise worldwide awareness and pressure apathetic politicians to take action and ban the harmful pesticide Atrazine. Please chip in! With your support, we can make this a huge success! Anyone who donates $50 or higher between now and February 10th we will acknowledge by listing their name on the International Day of Pesticide Action's webpage. Thank you!
