You can help them by planting trees there through:
click on the "Rainforest" button and then go to "gifts that give more", then to "protecting and restoring the environment" then choose: Planting native trees in Peru.
Oh, byt hte way, when you are on the hungersite, do click on all the buttons to a feed someone, children's health, breastcancer etc. I do it daily. It is an easy way to help.

Yes, thank you, Alexandra. I also click those buttons every day. They will, if you request, send you a daily email reminder. But I wasn't aware of the tree planting part. And thank you, Susan S. -I've book-marked that site. Can always use a little brain exercise!
Does everyone know Care2's click to donate site? If not, here it is--

They appear to be more equipped to protect their environment, than we.

It's excellent to know that there are people, who truly care. The rain forests need more protection, than most areas.

In North American, we have only temperate rain forests:
The largest, runs from southeastern Alaska to Central California.
The other, significantly smaller, exists along the Appalachian Mountains, from northern Georgia to New England.
These do not compare to the large rain forests, that must be 'off limits' to destruction.

Thank you Cal! It is always nice to hear good news. There must be protection worldwide for our precious forests. Without trees neither we nor our planet can survive. I 'click' everyday on Care2 and also for Pet Rescue and Rainforest sites.

Thanks for the interesting article Cal.
Horray for San Martin where human life is more important than the Big $. What a great start to taking care of their own resources of food, water, forrests and animal and birds.

Clearly, here is an impeccable example of peaceful demonstrating at work.
The inhabitants and government, deserve congratulations.

How masochistic, must we be, to continue destroying the every thing that keeps us alive?
