This cause is The Big Wild. They describe their vision as the following:
"Our vision is to keep at least half of Canada's public land and water wild forever. We are realizing this vision by supporting wilderness conservation campaigns across Canada. The Big Wild helps these campaigns by,
- educating people about the urgent need to protect one of the world’s last remaining wilderness areas – which amounts to 20% of all that’s left on the planet
- raising funds for wilderness protection
- enabling people to show decision-makers they support wilderness protection"
I urge you all to check out Big Wild and become supporters of it yourself.
We got some cool gifts from my parent's, who were vacationing in Hawaii the past week. Apparently, one of the towns there requires reusable bags, which is great to see. They also said that nearly everything is organic and everyone supports environmental causes (sounds a lot like Rossland, BC).
They bought me a hemp shirt that echoes my view of the Bush Administration, as well as several reusable bags from Maui.
The front of the T-shirt, which helps everyone determine the difference between good and bad Bush.--
Layla and I were quite surprised to find out we were in the local paper last week. The Stony Plain Reporter was nice enough to do an article on us. Thanks!
