These students know how to SAVE THE FROGS!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
One of the primary reasons I founded SAVE THE FROGS! in 2008 was to educate the next generation of humans about frogs and ensure they grow up with far more respect and appreciation for the environment than did our generation. I have spoken at hundreds of schools since then and am very grateful for our amazing student supporters out there. Frog saving students of the world: we salute you!
Please be sure to join us at the SAVE THE FROGS! Education Center in Berkeley, California this Friday May 16th 5pm-8pm for our Endangered Species Day Celebration. Hop on over to our Gift Center to find a cool eco-friendly gift that supports our conservation work. We now have SAVE THE FROGS! Guitar Picks to help you rock out, and Critter Skimmers to help you save frogs from your pool. We've got cool Pura Vida Bracelets in stock. You can show your support and enable us to save even more frogs and educate more students by donating to SAVE THE FROGS!. We now have recurring donations, which help us plan for the future and makes donating easier and less time-consuming for you, so please take advantage of that option when making your tax-deductible contribution! We have a thorough page all about volunteering for SAVE THE FROGS! and we have a page all about fundraising for the frogs. Not to mention over 51 other ways to help. We have a Students page and a Teachers page with many ideas on how schools can save frogs.
I hope you are inspired by the students and their accomplishments that follow. See you this Friday in Berkeley!

Manor Elementary School 4th graders raised $100 for SAVE THE FROGS!
Last week I gave a presentation on amphibian conservation to these amazing students from the Manor School in Fairfax, California. They asked great questions and already knew a lot about environmental issues. They sold chocolate frogs and raised $100 for our frog conservation programs! This weekend I return to their school to assess it for its suitability as a location for a SAVE THE FROGS! Wetlands Construction Workshop in which we will build an actual wetland for frogs.
"Hi Kerry, The kids were so excited to meet you and learn all about frogs. They are 100% onboard to help save the frogs! We'll be writing letters next week to all of the people we talked about. Thanks for the certificate and for your work to save frogs!"

Ms. Arcuri's Kindergarten Class - May Moore Primary School, Deer Park, NY raised $200 for our frog conservation efforts
"I teach kindergarten in May Moore Primary School in Deer Park, NY. On Friday, April 25th, my class put on a show for parents and dedicated the show to "frogs everywhere". For the last month, my class has been learning about and raising money for frogs. The children wrote "persuasive" letters to their parents, asking for jobs to do around the house so that they could earn money (which then could be donated to frogs). They also wrote persuasive letters to staff members in our school asking for donations for frogs. Each student made a sign with a frog fact and then chose a spot in the school to hang the sign. They wrote letters to pen pals sharing frog facts and asking their pen pals to visit Savethefrogs.com. We have received many positive responses! The children raised $200, mostly from the money they earned "working". They are very excited and I am very proud!"
Deb Turnbull's 7th grade Life Science class raised $228 for SAVE THE FROGS!
