I'm a Brazilian biology teacher and I'm sick worried about my country. I am 25 years old.
The fires in Pantanal have been the highest in the last 20 years, and it is really getting out of hand. These fires are causing huge environmental, social and economic issues to Brazil.
The fire has spread to more than 3 million acres (19 times the size of big Sao Paulo), and it’s destroying the precious and unique local fauna and flora. But the environment is not the only thing that is being affected by it. All the smoke and heat from the fires are causing heat waves all over the country and are worsening people’s respiratory problems (specially in riverside communities), and that is making the fight against the virus even harder.
My intention is to raise money and redirect all of it to NGOs that are doing their best to contain the fires and to help the local communities by bringing them water, food and medicine.
Brazil cannot stop this alone; we need global help.
OBSERVATION: I selected for the money to be sent to me because I couldn’t find the NGOs I’m donating to in the options, but I will keep my word and I will send all the money to these charitable organisations. I'm making a youtube video to raise awareness and I will make a second one proving the money I receive is sent to these NGOs. I will also post pictures as proof on my instagram main account (@claasanches)
The NGO’s I’m donating to are:
I am friends with people that work for ECOA and I trust them to do the right thing with the money.
The pictures are NOT MINE.
I would be eternally grateful for any help. I can't make a difference alone, but If we work together we can create a brighter future.
Thank you so much :)
