Kids to Help Decide How to Give $1 Million
Rare CEO Brett Jenks commented, "In addition to making me extremely popular with my young daughter who loves Club Penguin, this donation will provide critical support to local community leaders and families in some of the world's poorest areas of the rural developing tropics. These areas are rich in biodiversity -- housing more than half of all forests, reefs, waterways, fish stocks, medicinal plants, and fascinating ecosystems and species that define our planet Earth. The developing tropics even play a role in climate change. Deforestation contributes to about 20% of global carbon emissions, so we can't solve the climate crisis without empowering youth in forest-rich areas to become environmentally conscious leaders with the skills and desire to ignite and sustain change. We are delighted to be able to do so with the help of Club Penguin and its players."
