300acres.com Needs Your Help - We Have 30 Days to Save the Rainforest!

Good day social change makers! 

My name is Natalie Villalobos and I'm the founder of 300 Acres - a project that is attempting to raise $70,000 in 30 days to save 300 acres of ancestral land for the Shuar/Quichua people in Puyo, Ecuador.

We started the project this past Monday, March 5th and will give our biggest outreach push and donation raising through April 5th.

This of course is explicitly against the wishes of the native people of this region.
