We all know that being outdoors in nature helps people be healthier, and also helps them feel better. Sometimes, due to a long-term injury, illness or other reason, people are not able to get active outdoors like they would like to. I want to help fill in the time until they can go out and enjoy nature again! I started an environmental project at age 9 in 2010 that turned into a non-profit group which helps people learn about the environment, and how to help it. Care Cans take my favorite efforts from that project, and puts them together into a way I can share them with people who are not able to go outdoors and actively enjoy the environment!
Conserve It Forward Care Cans bring people a little of the outdoors, as
well as a lot of care from people around the world! Filled with 100
nature themed messages, each Care Can will provide its recipient with
over 3 months of daily doses of the outdoors!
Every $10 sponsors a Care Can in the continental U.S. ($15 for Alaska, Hawaii and Canada). As of March 5, 2013, I have completed and delivered 4 Care Cans, have funding and am putting together 12 Care Cans, and need funding for 15 more Care Cans.
This project brings people together from all over the world. It's been less than 2 weeks since I started this new
project and I have collected signatures, artwork and photos from people
in 6 countries! The 100 messages in each Care Can are a
mix of the "3 Ways to Participate" found below, but detailed at
