Thank You to all supporters of the Ancient Forest Alliance
THANK YOU's! Tree Huggers Ball Success, Amanda's T-Shirt Sales, PosterLoop, and Metropol
A huge THANK YOU to Nathaniel Glickman and members of the UVic Ancient Forest Committee for organizing a fun and successful fundraising night with a first rate line-up of local musicians (Moonshine Gang Victoria Chapter, (as the) Crow Flies, Redwood Green, Co-Captain, and DJ Rough Child) on Saturday’s 3rd Annual “Tree Huggers Ball”! The event raised a total of $4800 for our young organization that depends on grassroots support to stay afloat! Big thanks as well to Amanda Cook for donating nearly $400 in proceeds from sales of her “Stand up for the Coast” t-shirts!
In addition a great THANK YOU to Metropol Printshop (www.imetropol.com) for donating their time in placing our rally posters on all the downtown poles and to PosterLoop (www.posterloop.com) for contributing space on their electronic displays to promote the event as well!
2012 Year End Thank You!
The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to express with gratitude a huge THANK YOU to all our supporters – individuals, businesses, artists, volunteers, local organizations – for joining us in the momentous year of 2012.
In 2012 your support helped us to protect the spectacular Avatar Grove, to stop destructive logging plans for the Walbran Valley’s Castle Grove, to secure a BC government commitment to devise a new legal tool to protect BC’s biggest trees, and to build and support campaigns to protect Echo Lake, Cortes Island, McLaughlin Ridge, Mossy Maple Grove, and areas on the Sunshine Coast including Stillwater Bluffs and the Day Road Forest.
Your continued support in 2013 will work towards organizing the largest ancient forest rally in BC’s history this spring; a major, volunteer-driven campaign in key BC “swing ridings” where politicians are particularly sensitive to public opinion; the release of several new, vitally important reports on the status of BC’s old-growth forests and the viability of a sustainable, value-added second-growth forest industry; working with key allies including First Nations, forestry workers, businesses, Chambers of Commerce, faith leaders, and scientists to speak up; organizing a massive media campaign to garner provincial, national, and international news coverage; and a lot more!
Here is a list of the businesses and organizations that have generously supported us through financial or in-kind donations:
