Earth Day Charity Challenge

Our unique Earth Day strangler fig tree sitting charity challenge fundraiser was a huge success and will now benefit both the environment and the completion of the Futuro Verde multimedia center. Thank you to all who have donated or participated throughout the month of April! Due to the huge turnout of interested supporters, we have decided to keep our donation buttons live for all participants until the end of the month so that all the donors interested can continue to contribute as much as possible.

Fundraiser proceeds:

  1. 1st Place – Ken Jordan will donate a minimum of $1,000 to his charitable organization, Green Wave.
  2. 2nd Place – Cala, Huntley and Monica will donate $500 to their charitable organization, ASOPROLAPA.
  3. 3rd Place – Tandy Demarchelier will donate $250 to her charitable organization, Nicoya Peninsula Waterkeepers.
  4. All other participants who reach their $1,000 goal will donate 10% of their final amount to their charity.
  5. All other money raised will go to benefit the completion of the Futuro Verde multimedia center!  Thank you for helping us complete our library and computer lab needs to include- enough computers for all students, comfortable seating in our library, more bookshelves and the purchase of more books!
