Amberwaves Donations and Membership
"The human heart is very powerful and the human soul is unconquerable. One person who holds fast to his or her ideals and strives for justice in the face of seemingly impossible odds can stir the transformation of social, political, and economic structures. . . . One person can make a difference."
-Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich, foreword to
Imagine a World Without Monarch Butterflies
Amberwaves relies completely on the generosity of its members, supporters, and friends. We are part of Planetary Health, Inc., a nonprofit organization devoted to planetary health and peace that receives no funding from governments or large corporations.
