Give $1 to 'Reforesting Ghana' and Kevin will match it. Support Engage Globally together! – One Today by Google https://onetoday.google.com/m/d_hs1tkz
Did you know? 2.5 million people in Ghana depend on forests, yet at the current rate of deforestation, the nation’s forests will disappear in the next 25 years.
