Earth Day Community Action!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Happy Earth Day! On behalf of SAVE THE FROGS! staff and volunteers worldwide and on behalf of the frogs, we send a huge thank you to all of you who support our efforts by donating, volunteering, spreading the word, attending our events, educating yourself about frogs and improving your ecological footprint! Let's all celebrate Earth Day by taking part in our first ever "Community Action". A community action is an environmental act that every one of us can do to benefit the frogs, regardless of our age, educational background, geography or socio-economic group.
Today's community action is to download the PDF of the Coloring Page below, print 30 copies of it, and deliver the copies to a local school. Just walk up to the front desk of the school's office (wearing a SAVE THE FROGS! t-shirt if possible!), set the SAVE THE FROGS! Coloring Pages down and say "Hi, frogs are rapidly disappearing, please pass these on to your teachers." That's it! If you don't have a printer, please ask a friend to print them, or visit your local printer. Thanks and happy Earth Day! Thanks to Leah Klehn for making this coloring page! Click on it to get a printable 8.5x11" PDF!
Join the Frog Action Team: set up your recurring donations to SAVE THE FROGS!
I am pleased to announce we have a fantastic new donation technology that will not only help the frogs, it will make your environmental giving more convenient and also help you with your budgeting! We have partnered with secure payment processor Network For Good to bring you easy to set up recurring donations! Please help SAVE THE FROGS! by joining our Frog Action Team, the elite group of dedicated frog lovers who donate as little as $5 per month to SAVE THE FROGS!. I already set up my own recurring donation to SAVE THE FROGS! at $20/month. Please match me! Thank you and happy Earth Day!
