Help SAVE THE FROGS!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Our 5th birthday is upon us! We have come so far, growing from an idea into one of the planet's greatest environmental movements. Save The Frogs Day 2013 events are currently scheduled in Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ghana, India, Israel, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, South Africa, Spain, USA. Please help us reach our goal of 300 events in 50 countries: please organize an event in your community, and ask your local schools and environmental organizations to take part as well. Please be sure to register your event, no matter how big or small it may be.
We need your help to ensure that we have the resources to continue growing our efforts in the years to come! Can you imagine if we had SAVE THE FROGS! chapters in 50 countries? Do you agree that the frogs of the world would be much safer with so many people working to protect them? Please donate to SAVE THE FROGS! today and help us reach our goal of $50,000 raised by Save The Frogs Day! It would be an amazing birthday present if you helped us save the frogs and grow our movement! Thank you! And yes, if you donate $50 or higher we will add your name to a Thank You page on the website!

Teachers? Do you want me to Skype with your students?
Teachers: Wouldn't it be cool if your students had a Skype Q&A session with a SAVE THE FROGS! biologist? If you have the proper technology, let us know and we'll do our best to set up a time to talk to your students!
"Hi Kerry, Thank you so much for skyping today. My kids are obsessed with you :) Our kids are from the city, and don't have much experience with nature, and having people who are passionate about nature...especially frogs is so important to giving our students a different perspective. You will be hearing from me about our fundraising/Save the frogs day ventures soon. Thanks again....so much!"

SAVE THE FROGS! Volunteer Meeting in Sacramento a Huge Success
Sacramento, CA: In order to further spread SAVE THE FROGS’ message of amphibian conservation, volunteers from the Sacramento area met together to learn how to become more effective at being an advocate for the frogs! Topics of discussion included: communication skills, techniques in effective advocacy, updates on various campaign efforts, and training to run SAVE THE FROGS! informational tables at events. There are a lot of awesome Save The Frogs’ events happening in the region. Our most sincere thanks goes out to the Davis Food Co-op for providing a donation of food for this event! Thank you for feeding our dedicated volunteers!
