One easy way to support Sustainable Roots' work is by making us your Amazon smile organization. Every time you shop with Amazon a percentage goes to Sustainable Roots. You don't have to pay anything extra, just sign up and Amazon does the rest!
As of February 2016 we have raised $86.69 through our Amazon Smile account!
Another extraordinarily easy way to support us is by changing your home page to Welzoo. It is an entertaining homepage that displays something different every day. Every time you open your homepage Sustainable Roots gets 1 cent. This might not seem like much but it adds up! Click on the word Welzoo to get started!
As of May 11th, 2016 with just 18 supporters 1 penny at a time we have raised $34.50!
Karima Boukhalfa, owner of Sabrosa Restaurante, has been a hearty supporter of Sustainable Roots since our very beginnings. She is always willing to throw us a fundraising party, and annually hosts Big Kid Prom in Grand Junction. In addition, the tacos are awesome. If you are in Grand Junction, stop by Sabrosa.
Brian Wilson and (Peter) Parker Rice at CinemaRaven came to Ecuador in May of 2015 and spent 10 days taking hundreds of hours of film to turn into something beautiful with which to promote our work. A short documentary has been released to a limited group of people and we look forward to the day we can share with the rest of you. Until then, click the link and check out the rest of their amazing work!
Aaron and Jessica Seibert are a rocking couple with a rocking band, Colorado based Jack+Jill. They have always been willing to play us a show or help us out when we need it. Check out their Facebook page for news of tours in your area, click the link to their website to check out all the rad tunes they produce.
The Grand Junction Community of Christ Church makes an annual financial contribution to our work. In addition the ever inspiring Naomi Barlow annually hosts the "Hunger Drive" Event with support of the church and youth. The event promotes solidarity for those less fortunate, educates about the living conditions around the world and raises funds for Sustainable Roots.
It is quite possible that without Jen Swedhin, Sustainable Roots wouldn't even exist. She has been an inspiration throughout the years, a shoulder to lean on and a helping hand to us when we need it. Also, she takes some really beautiful pictures. Take a look at her website and be inspired!
Ryan Lynch (one of our co-founders) with the Third Millennium Alliance is always willing to lend a hand with project development ideas. Watch for some future collaboration between our two groups as Sustainable Roots begins to expand our conservation efforts. Check their page to help with the earthquake relief fund.
Leodan Arcos, the owner of Wasi Panka is one of the fearless leaders of the Cosanga Birdwatchers Club. His tour company was responsible for providing our amazing experience in the Cuyabeno Reserve.

Saving the best for last. Our two biggest collaborators. This pair has donated time, money, supplies, and shoulders to cry on. I can't thank you enough Mom and Dad for supporting me in my dreams and helping me make them a reality. I love you both to the moon and back.
