James Brooks is making a difference in the lives of gorillas and gorilla rangers

from the Me to We website:
Me to We is a new kind of social enterprise for people who want to help change the world with their daily choices. Through our media, socially responsible choices and leadership experiences, we support Free The Children's work with youth creating global change.

Right now Me to We has candidates in 6 categories who are eligible to win 5000$ for the charity of their choice. James Brooks, in the 13-17 year old Youth in Action category, has been supporting the gorilla rangers in Eastern DRC and will donate his prize money to his cause if he wins the Me to We contest. Please consider supporting him or any of the worthy candidates by clicking here.
James's lifelong passion for apes and monkeys led him to establish, a website dedicated to saving apes from extinction. After learning about the plight in Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, James founded 1000Classrooms and challenged his peers to help raise funds for poultry collectives so the widows of slain park rangers could sell eggs to makes ends meet. Through his efforts, James has raised enough money to buy 25,000 eggs and has engaged thousands on the issue of ape preservation.
