Dear Donor,

It is with immense gratitude that we come to share a unique experience that became possible due your generous support.

Prepare to embark on an enchanting journey through the breathtaking landscapes of Minas Gerais, where the hidden gem of the Serra do Brigadeiro State Park awaits your discovery! This remarkable oasis of nature is a treasure bestowed upon the countryside, an exquisite tapestry woven with captivating wonders.

Brace yourself for an awe-inspiring tale, a testament to the indomitable spirit of Lucas, a remarkable 12-year-old adventurer, whose voyage to the State Park will leave you breathless with admiration. Today, we invite you to immerse yourself in the extraordinary narrative that awaits, a tale that fills our hearts with immeasurable pride.

 

"Oh, hello there!

My name is Lucas, and I was part of the group of young eco-leaders of 2022, that had the honor of being granted a visit to the Serra do Brigadeiro State Park, a park that evolves eight cities nearby ours - Rosário da Limeira!

The Park is truly a natural treasure hidden into the countryside of the state of Minas Gerais. We've only heard about it a few times before, but, as a matter of fact, you can say that we didn't expect much from it.

Still, as we were entering the Park, we were amazed by the mountains covered by trees, countless of them. As we entered the park, it was like an oasis we were enveloped by the grandeur of the mountains and enchanted by the lush forests that covered them. Nature welcomed us with open arms, providing a spectacle of beauty and biodiversity.

Walking along the trails (accompanied by the tour guide), we got to know that there were a lot of different animals on that area, including the of rare and endangered species - liike the Woolly Spider Monkey, which is large primate and can be seen from a great distance, moving through the trees.

Unfortunately, we didn't see them, but each step brought us closer to a new wonder of nature! We saw a lot of biodiversity and even saw the footprint of a large animal, which got us all excited! Our teacher Dayana, who was with us, said that it was probably from a feline, such as an ocelot, present in that region.

It was a transformative experience that awakened a deep connection with the environment within us.

The mountains of Serra do Brigadeiro have become icons representing our responsibility to protect and preserve nature. We were able to understand more about the importance of taking action for biodiversity, addressing the environmental challenges that the world faces. The visit to the park instilled an ecological consciousness in us, young eco-leaders, and we are committed to being agents of change in our communities.

Your support made this journey possible. It is thanks to your generosity that we could experience this unforgettable adventure.

Your donation allowed us to connect with nature, understand its significance, and commit to safeguarding it. Your investment in us, young eco-leaders, is a testament to your confidence in the potential of the new generations to make a difference.

On behalf of the entire group of young eco-leaders of 2022, we express deep gratitude for your contribution. Know that your donation not only provided us with a unique moment but also inspired us to continue raising awareness and taking action for the environment. We are determined to carry forward this legacy and contribute to a sustainable future.

Once again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and generosity. Your donation has made a difference in the lives of young eco-leaders and in the preservation of nature. May we, together, continue to protect and cherish our planet for future generations.

With gratitude,

The group of young eco-leaders of 2022
