Help Malena get to Thailand

Malena Niece


Dear family, friends & business colleagues,

                As a senior at Central Washington University majoring in environmental policy I am making a month-long trip during the summer of 2018 to the beautiful countries of Thailand and Laos. I will be traveling with a volunteer program that goes by the acronym GIVE aka Growth International Volunteer Excursions. They are passionate about sustainable initiatives that have long-lasting impacts on communities in these developing nations, so I’m very excited.  

During my time in southeast Asia I will be learning about real world issues.

·         Species extinction

·         Deforestation

·         Organic farming

·         Global warming

A real-time example Thailand struggles with greatly is habitat loss due to commercial logging and agriculture. Elephants, in particular, have suffered greatly, going from over 100,000 individuals a century ago to now only an estimated 2,000 elephants in the wild!! We will be aiding the restoration of the elephant species by performing a reforestation project and basic health checks for these elephants!

Other concepts we will be learning about include organic farming, eco-construction and wildlife management.

At this time, I am asking for donations for my cause. Your contribution to my conservation journey and helping me further my education would be ever so greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and thank you in advance for your donation of any sort. I will be sending out a follow up email and pictures after my return!

Best regards,
