Help Save The Amazon In Montreal This Weekend

Not a protest, a dance party!
Help Save The Amazon In Montreal This Weekend
  • As the Amazon Rainforest continues to burn, Montrealers have become restless looking for ways to help.
  • How about a rain dance? Or at least Rainforest Fest, a huge dance party with all profits going to Rainforest Trust.
  • Rainforest Trust is one of the most effective nonprofit organizations working in conservation for over 30 years.

We have all seen the flooding of heart-wrenching photos on our social media news, depicting what is going on in the Amazon Rainforest right now.

The resulting images are heartbreaking and if you don't think that these conditions will affect you, you are wrong.  

Our planet is slowly dying and we as human beings need to come together and start making real changes. I can’t imagine being the only person in this city that is trying to figure out how to help in these devastating situations and 5AM is helping us do just that.  

Following the wildfires in the Amazon, Montreal collective 5AM wanted to do what they could to help... and they have invited all of us to participate.  

5AM is a curated even and media collective that works together with some of Montreal's most notable events and event spaces. You may have seen their work at PY1 Nights, Mural Fest, Nouvelle Vague and more.

5AM has partnered up with Rainforest Trust, which is an organization that has been purchasing and protecting acres of tropical forests around the globe for over thirty years. This organization has been helping keep our planet alive and they want to help save this majestic and oh so important rainforest.

By collaborating with numerous advisers and experts, Rainforest Trust is able to identify specific territories within the tropical forests on different continents. This is done in order to preserve these rich and essential ecosystems, which are populated by numerous plant and animals species.

5AM has committed themselves to donating all profits from this event to Rainforest Trust and will also be letting attendees know exactly how their donations have helped.    

The event will take place this Saturday from 9 pm until 3 a.m. at Auberge Saint Gabriel. Each ticket is twenty dollars and with that purchase, approximately 7.5 acres of land will be saved, which is about 1,500 trees.
