Narrator: You know the rainforest is in trouble.
An animated woman pops up over a plain background and thinks about deforestation in a thought bubble, sighing.
Narrator: You’ve seen the headlines on climate change,
The video fades to footage of a large logging ship hauling timber from a tropical area.
Narrator: you hear about all those species going extinct
The video fades to footage of a chimpanzee looking at the camera.
Narrator: and you’ve seen all those photographs of burning trees.
The video fades to a photograph of a burning tropical rainforest.
Narrator: And every time you see this stuff, you think to yourself:
The photo fades to an animation of the same woman walking into a space where she is surrounded by computers, a newspaper, a tablet and a phone.
Narrator: I should probably donate something, somewhere, to help stop this.
On each item in the space, a message by Rainforest Trust appears that says “Save Acres,” “How to Stop Deforestation,” “Help Now,” “Donate Today,” and “Learn How You Can Help.”
Narrator: But remembering to donate is hard
The animation zooms into a new scene where the woman pulls up a paper check that is blank.
Narrator: and knowing where to donate is even harder. Believe me, we get it.
The woman brings a pen out and hovers over it, struggling to fill it out, before pulling the pen away and expressing an unsure “hmm” sound.
Narrator: That’s why Rainforest Trust is taking the guesswork out of protecting our planet.
The animation slides away revealing footage of three indigenous girls from a community in the rainforest giggling as they race towards the camera.
Narrator: By signing up to be a Conservation Hero, you’ll donate any amount you want monthly - automatically.
The video fades to an animation of dollars increasing from five to fifteen before zooming out to reveal the fifteen dollar number is on a calendar page. The calendar pages start falling month by month to show the donation still happening on the same day every month.
Narrator: This donation supports Rainforest Trust’s proven and direct conservation approach,

The video fades to drone footage of a muddy river winding its way through tropical rainforest.
Narrator: Saving the planet is difficult
The video cuts to footage of a lemur being held up by a field scientist wearing gloves. The lemur is looking at the camera and winks as a green background wipes from the corners inward in a circular pattern. Tree stumps appear over the green background.
Narrator: but remembering to do it doesn’t have to be.
The animated woman pops up, giving a thumbs up as the tree stumps are replaced with animated tropical rainforest.
Narrator: Become a Conservation Hero today.
An animated sloth and bird appear in the forest.
Narrator: Your $15 monthly donation saves 90 acres of habitat every year.
The camera pans to the right of the animated scene and “$15” in large white letters appears before flipping over to reveal “90 acres” in large white letters.
