JUST WITHIN REACH
TREE CAMPAIGN


TO:  Every Backstreet Boys Fan and Their Families

Just Within Reach mission is to provide environmental education and promote personnal responsibility and accountability with regard to the health of the Earth. Taking care of our home planet and it's resources begins at home! Kevin wants JWR to serve as a resource that empowers people, particulary young people and families, with information and knowledge about environmental issues- information and knowledge that can be put into action at the local level.

This is my proposal to help the enviroment and support JWR

I know there are many Backstreet Fans all around this World, varying in ages and locations.  If we all  pull together for a common cause WE WILL BE A MILLION STRONG !!!

So my proposal is if we all plant atleast one tree, think how much that would help the environment and make the World a more beautiful place.

I know some fans are very young, so that's where your parents come in.  Ask  them about the environment and that you want the family to do their part to help.  Make it a FAMILY EVENT.

Live in a big city or an apartment?
*Contact realtives and friends, see if you can plant a tree on their property.

*Contact Your Local Park near you and donate a tree.

Planting a Tree is only the first step and we need to take alot more, but if we do it together it will be a little easer to reach our goal to save the environment.

This is what we can do for NOW! We need to get educated about the environmental issues in are own backyards! Starting to clean things up at home may seem simple and cheesy, but it's very important and the more communities that do it, the cleaner our world will be. By joining local environmental organization, we will get practical experience and ideas for how you can implement bigger plans later. Watch the news and read up on the issues you're interested in and start talking to people who can teach you even more. START ASKING QUESTIONS!

Kevin always says, "I'm just now learning what I can do and I want all of us to learn together,"

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES: There are too many to name but here is a short list to get you started.

*Global warming (also called "climate change")
*Water, air and soil pollution
*Waste (garbage) reduction and recycling
*Alternative and renewable energy sources
*Habitat destruction
*Protection of endangered species
