Here's the email... I sent over the weekend:




An orangutan was shot with 74 air gun pellets. Blinded and having lost her one-month old baby, “Hope” the orangutan was left hanging on to dear life.

Corporations’ greed for cheap palm oil is murdering endangered orangutans. Together you and I can stop this -- and we’ve got a plan, but we need your support now before it’s too late.

A,

An orangutan was shot more than 70 times with an air gun on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

Conservationists found “Hope” almost dead, with four bullets in her left eye and two in her right. She is now blind. Her one-month old baby died.

Orangutans like Hope are on the brink of extinction because of the relentless greed of massive palm oil corporations, that are tearing down orangutans’ lush home in South East Asia for profit.

I know together we can stop these corporations. Because SumOfUs members like you and me have pushed the biggest companies in the world like McDonald’s and Starbucks to commit to no-deforestation palm oil.

Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered. We need your help to transform the whole dirty palm oil industry and protect orangutans before it’s too late. A small monthly gift from you will mean we can scale up our efforts, roll out tried and true winning tactics, and win against even more companies this year.

A, will you please make a small monthly gift today to clean up the palm oil industry and help protect the orangutans?

Hope’s not the only victim.

Multinational corporations’ greed for cheap palm oil has decimated the rainforests where the last orangutans live. Every year, millions of acres of pristine rainforest are destroyed -- replaced by huge palm oil plantations.

Deprived of their natural habitat, orangutans starve. When they feed off palm fruits on plantations, they’re shot. Last year, an orangutan in Borneo died after being shot at least 130 times with an air gun.

Palm oil also has severe impacts on people. Tens of millions of people in Indonesia rely directly on rainforests for their livelihoods. When palm oil plantations are built, they destroy the resources of communities, leaving them to face poverty.

But together you and I can clean up the palm oil sector. Because when we have your support we are powerful and we can win: after sustained pressure from SumOfUs members, Nestlé ended its own 13-year business partnership with palm oil producer and rainforest destroyer, IndoFood.

SumOfUs runs almost entirely on donations from people like you. It’s your support that powers change. And the more we can depend on regular donations, the more time we can spend running and winning campaigns.

It all adds up. A small monthly gift from you today can help clean up the palm oil industry and protect the orangutans. Will you please join us?
