In a time when more and more people are using their voices to affect change, Leonardo DiCaprio announced this week while speaking at Yale that his foundation plans to donate $20 million dollars to combat climate change. He's using his voice and his considerable resources!
“We are proud to support the work of over 100 organizations at home and abroad,” DiCaprio said. “These grantees are active on the ground, protecting our oceans, forests and endangered species for future generations – and tackling the urgent, existential challenges of climate change.”
“Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water. We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late.”
