Why should you donate?
Who am I and what I have done, My name is Jivan and 9 years ago i moved from brooklyn NY, to puerto rico, during over the last 6 years, I dedicated myself to becoming the guardian of the beaches and rivers as I grew tired of seeing litter all over this beautiful paradise.
I started walking with signs to raise awareness to this problem. I became a human billboard and took my signs everywhere with me, even if there were a few people, all I needed was one person to read them. I did this almost everyday. There was one beach that I took care of the most and i would come and place my signs all over that beach and watched the beach to make sure no one lift their trash and i would remind people to take their garbage.
Ever since being shot, I no longer walk with my signs, but i still go cleaning the beaches and rivers when i can. I wanted to leave puerto Rico after all that has happened to me, but an opportunity to stay presented itself as I found the land of my dreams and work on my vision that I had for a while now, which could be read here. That vision is growing a massive forest of food as I am a practitioner of permaculture. I want to create a food forest for me and for all the wildlife as I look to create a sanctuary for the birds, bees and butterflies.
I am sure i inspired many people with what i have done and hope to continue inspiring more as i look to make videos from my farm showing the progress and sharing my perspectives on how i live. My mission in cleaning the rivers and beaches is not done yet. There is a small creek by my land which is filled with Large amounts of garbage. So i plan on cleaning it out daily and make videos showing the progress. I also have plans to create cigarette butt stations at the beaches and rivers, even placing my signs in different places.
What do I need the donation for?
This land came wit a house that is in dire need of repair, it has no Windows or doors , I need help getting materials for the home such as paint , rain barrels since there is no water on property, some tools for gardening, solar security lighting and or solar panels as there is no electricity. Also i am need of seeds to start growing food.
Being captain planet was my job but i also did tours to make money, but after being shot, I could not do tours anymore as I am traumatized as I developed PTSD. Now having this home I can have the peace that I have been seeking. Through my mission for my cause, I did not make a dime, but I did what I did from the heart and so I ask for help from the heart. I am like a non- profit organization , only just a one man army on a mission to change the world. If anyone has felt inspired by what I do or like the things I post on here or social media and would like to support what I have done and what I will continue to do. I would greatly appreciate it any help. Thanks
I would rather have people donate used things that they no longer need, but I understand not many people have that. But you can donate to my paypal via the form below. If you do have any items to donate in Puerto Rico. I would gladly accept it.
Also I accept gift certificates for seeds from bakers creek. Send gift certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for the support and all the love many of the people have showed me throughout this mission.
