The Crystal Method: NOW Is the Time to Support Amazon Watch!
December 18, 2012 | Monica Salazar
I'm writing with a soulful message from the EDM (electronic dance music) community, straight from the hearts of two ambassadors that have long supported our work – Janine and Ken Jordan.
Janine – the Executive Director of the Electronic Music Alliance and Ken – of the two-time Grammy-nominated band The Crystal Method were in Brazil for Lollapalooza where the band performed for a crowd of 75,000. Amazon Watch Brazil Campaigner Maira was able to illustrate for Janine and Ken the urgent struggle to stop the Belo Monte dam, a devastating project being built in the heart of the Amazon. In a brave display of solidarity, Ken shouted to fans "PARE BELO MONTE!" mid-show, and has since supported our efforts by spreading this message to a large network of supporters, the dance music community.
"NOW IS THE TIME" to support Amazon Watch! Show Ken, Janine and our partners in the Amazon your solidarity – share this message with your friends and family, and make a donation NOW to help fulfill our 2012 fundraising goals and meet the many challenges ahead in the New Year.
There are many ways to show your support for Amazon Watch this holiday season:
- Donate. Give generously, give now! Your $5, $50 or $500 helps stop Amazon destruction, advance indigenous rights and promote alternative forms of energy. Also a great holiday gift in made in the name of someone you love.
- Share this video message. Use hashtag #EDM4AW to let people in your social networks know that you support Amazon Watch.
- Join the photo campaign. Take a picture of yourself holding a sign that says "Pare Belo Monte!" or "EDM 4 Amazon Watch!" or "Dance for the Amazon!" and share via social networks – get creative, we want to see you in action!
"NOW IS THE TIME!" Make an investment in our collective future. YOUR support is what makes victories possible.
