Hello Friends and Family,
In the last couple of years we have been blessed to travel to Peru multiple times and during our journeys there we have become very aware of what is happening in the Amazon Rainforest. First of all, we want to express that the Amazon is one of the most biodiverse regions left on the planet. It is responsible for a large percent of the oxygen we breathe and the plants that grow there are the basis for many of our modern medicines. Of the 60,000 + plant species in this bio region, less than 3% have been studied by modern science. Many believe that the cures to most of the worlds diseases may still be hidden in this vast tropical pharmacopia. Deforestation of the Amazon is occuring at an alarming rate! Companies are clear cutting the jungles for charcoal, timber, mining operations, and also to grow GMO soybeans for livestock. Pastures for cattle are also a huge culprit in this greed based crime against nature and indigenous culture.
YOU CAN HELP RIGHT NOW! MAKE A DONATION! A dear friend of ours has started a 300 + acre conservation project deep in the jungles of Peru called "Area de conservación Bahuaja". The intention of the project is to re-populate the land with various medicinal trees and plants in order to show that the rainforest can produce valuable products in a sustainable way without clear cutting and deforestation. Another intention is to create an educational and retreat center where people can come visit and learn about the rainforest and what is happening down there in the name of greed and ignorance.
Please watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcUrX6gMfsg to learn more about the project and MAKE A DONATION for this wonderful cause.

ONE LAST THING! Remember that the more you give in life, the more you recieve. It's such a simple concept and its so true. KARMA IS REAL! If you act, it will come back. Generosity is the root source of abundance.
