As it turns out, Leonardo DiCaprio has been actively contributing to causes working to clean up our planet through the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.  He has pledged $15 million to various environmental projects: Global Fishing Watch, Rainforest Acton Network, ClearWater, Nature Conservancy, and the Solutions Project.  Leonardo DiCaprio reminds us that currently less than 3% of all philanthropic giving goes toward conservation, sustainability, and animal protection.  He also points out that contributing to ecological projects can also have economic benefit.
Upworthy: When he’s not fighting off bears or trying to win an Oscar, Leonardo DiCaprio is busy saving the environment.

Leonardo DiCaprio: "The challenge before us requires each and every one of us take action. We owe this to ourselves, but more importantly, to the future generations who are counting on us."

It is my goal for this blog to become a resource for those looking for ways to contribute to the healing of this planet.  If you know of any projects of this kind, please contact me so that I can post the information about the project here.
