The youngest
BJF fundraiser

By 8. December 2016October 13th, 2021News Home

Here is an inspiring example of how anyone (of any age) can support the BJF and the Araguaia Corridor. Erica Brooks from Pennsylvania is just 11 years old! She heard about the BJF and decided to create a campaign to save the jaguar’s habitat in Brazil. Boosted by her creativity, she organized a drawing contest at her school and sold tickets for people to vote.

She didn’t stop there. Her artistic and entrepreneurial spirit led her to publish her own book and she even went on air at a local radio station. In the end, Erica raised over US$500 for the BJF.

More than the donation, Erica’s example is evidence that everyone has the power to get involved. Bravo, Erica!
