The 5th Annual Save The Frogs Day is only 48 hours away!
It's only 48 hours until the 5th Annual Save The Frogs Day, set to be the largest day of amphibian education in the planet's history! We've got at least 150 known events taking place all around the world, and we'll likely hear about dozens more over the next few weeks. This year's events are bigger than ever and we will likely reach well over 20,000 participants directly, plus hundreds of thousands more who learn about our amphibian conservation efforts through newspaper articles, television, radio, websites and social media. I've been in Colombia for the past two weeks, kicking South America's environemtal revolution into high gear. I've spoken to over 500 Colombian students and scientists about frog conservation. Tomorrow I will give a televised presentation at the premiere science museum in Medellin. I'm getting emails daily from event organizers in Ghana, Italy, Bangladesh, Mexico, Colombia, Nepal, the Phillipines, the UK and the USA. The SAVE THE FROGS! movement is about to explode!
I've dedicated the last ten years of my life to saving the frogs. I started this movement from scratch five years ago and have built it into one of the most significant and beneficial environmental movements in the history of the planet. You know from reading these emails that nobody does it like SAVE THE FROGS!. I've spent 20,000 learning about frogs, teaching people about frogs, and growing our worldwide network of frog activists.
I know how to SAVE THE FROGS! and how to grow this movement, but I need your financial support to make it happen. Save The Frogs Day is SAVE THE FROGS' 5th birthday, so I'm asking you to place a tax-deductible donation of whatever you can afford, $5, $50, $500, or $5,000 to show your support for our five year's of efforts and to help ensure our next five years are vastly more influential and impressive. Please show your support and donate today!!! Anyone who donates $50 or more will get their name listed on the Save The Frogs Day 2013 webpage's Thank You section (unless you prefer to remain anonymous)! THANK YOU!!!
