In 10th grade at my school, each student is expected to do a project on something that they care about deeply. For me, this was the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Northeastern Minnesota where I spent a lot of time during my summers. Unfortunately, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is in deep trouble because it is being threatened by the impending approval of Sulfide-Ore Copper mines in the nearby watershed. The resulting polluted water could flow directly into the pristine Boundary Waters causing long term negative effects.
Save the Boundary Waters Foundation is trying their best to stop the mines, but they need our help.
For my project, I chose to build a canoe paddle that I could use to help fundraise for this foundation. Any person who donates $20 or more to Save the Boundary Waters through this page will get a chance to win the paddle. Keep in mind donating $40 will get you two chances and so on. All of the collected funds will go directly to Save the Boundary Waters Foundation / Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness.
