Hey Good People,
We’ve got another challenge on the cards, this one involves lots of sweat, and a whole lot of impact points. 620 to be precise. IF, and that’s a big if you take action, and post every day.
It goes like this, starting on the 1st of March for the entire month you’ll have to bang out 30 push ups, 30 sit ups, and 30 of the good ole legs on fire squats, every single day.
Ah here, you’re having a laugh!
I’m afraid this is no laughing matter, Jacinta (random name I’ve chosen to act as some sort of protester) the Daintree needs you! Really it needs all of us to get our butts into gear, and get squatting like there’s no tomorrow.
Luckily, we have each other for moral support, our own little community of Good accountability buddies.
Make your pledge to join the challenge now!
We want you to challenge yourself, your friends, partner, kids, your teams, even your neighbours (it could be a conversation starter) to join all of us to help rewild the Daintree rainforest.
If it’s really not their thing, send them the link to donate, it still counts.
To get you in the rewild spirit, pledge your support to help Rewild the Daintree rainforest.
On that, what’s Rewild?
Rewild was set up by a bunch of awesome humans at Halfcut who care very much about our world, just as much as we do.
Over the past 5 years, they’ve planted over 96,000 trees!!
Wow, there’s no messing around.
Like us, Rewild is contributing to several UN Sustainable Development Goals. They have a number of restoration projects located across Australia and into South East Asia, working towards a bigger goal of establishing 1 million trees by June 2023.
Within that is the Daintree Lowland Rainforest project, and that’s where we come in.
Jabalbina, Rainforest 4 Foundation & HalfCut have come together to restore the Daintree. A recently signed agreement will see the three organisations contributing to a significant rainforest restoration project at Wawu Dimbi.
An inspiring partnership to say the least, as it’s the only formalised, non-Government program which purchases land in the Daintree Lowland Rainforest for conservation to be owned and managed by its Traditional Owners. Together, they’ve purchased 18 properties.
There are two existing buildings on the property, which provide cultural meetings, and camps for Bama (meaning Rainforest Aboriginal people).
A priority of the project is to re-establish plant species of cultural significance to Eastern Kuku Yalanji Bama. This includes plants traditionally used for food, tools, shelters, and medicines. This will establish an accessible resource for Bama in the use of these plants.
On top of that, 18 new jobs will be created through this project, all will be filled by Bama with 12 of those roles being Indigenous specified traineeships.
50% of trainees identify as female.
They’re literally doing it all.
Their goal is to establish 110,000 trees on the property over seven years. So, taking part in this Rewild challenge is contributing to this very number.
Our goal as the Good Empire community is to get to 1000 trees this month.
All it will take is literally 32 people making a commitment to taking part in this everyday, and donating $31, aka $1 a day.
