Fundraising Update - Please support the Ancient Forest Alliance!

DONATE to the ANCIENT FOREST ALLIANCE online or by cheque at: http://www.ancientforestalliance.org/donate.php


The Ancient Forest Alliance – BC’s newest major grassroots environmental group founded just 3 months ago – needs your support GREATLY.

We launched a fundraising campaign on March 22, with a goal of raising $20,000 by June 21.

So far, over 120 generous individuals have contributed over $7000. THANK YOU for your generous support!

Whether you can donate $10 or $1000, your support is great appreciated, and we'll ensure that your support will go farther with us than with almost any other environmental group in the country.

We’re in the works right now in building the MOST EFFECTIVE campaign for ancient forests and to ban raw log exports this province has ever seen...underway are a whole lot of new activists, new allies, and new strategies not seen before that will ratchet-up this campaign to an unprecedented level to save what are undoubtedly the MOST BEAUTIFUL ecosystems in WORLD, BC’s spectacular old-growth forests with their thousand year old, moss-draped giants trees with trunks as wide as your living room, that tower as tall as downtown skyscrapers...that are being reduced into a sea of giant stumps right now.

This is not an easy campaign, to put it mildly...at risk are several million hectares of endangered ancient forests. Many millions more, most of the biggest and the best, have already been cut. To save what remains and to sustain forestry jobs at the same time through a sustainable second-growth industry under a stubborn government, will be an intensely difficult task...but we will succeed with your help.

DONATE to the ANCIENT FOREST ALLIANCE online or by cheque at: http://www.ancientforestalliance.org/donate.php

Or if you're in Victoria on Saturday, April 24, come see us at our Earth Day booth at Centennial Square between 1 to 4 pm.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support for our new organization!
