This is some amazing work they do; empowering local populations through helping to build schools, clean water systems, women's alternative income programs, medical centers, and a sustainable food supply. In addition to all of the win-win-wins that provides, this keeps big oil from buying up their land — and the rainforest — in order to ... well, you know the drill. Pun intended.

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one.
