Subject: Global Report : Mission Green Earth Stand Up Take Action : it rocked the world!!!!

This is a GREAT News for all of us and I am sure you will be PROUD about it!

This shows the spirit and passion of AOL volunteers, the inspiration of Guruji to make a positive difference in this planet!

AOL again did an amazing work this year through ‘The  Mission Green Earth Stand Up Take Action 2008 (MGESUTA08)’, an AOL- Sri Sri Institute of  Agricultural Sciences and Technology, UNMC & UNEP’s Joint Initiative.

AOL was one of the many partners of UNMC.  AOL contributed to 9 percent (10.6 million) of the Global Stand Up Counts which is 116 million.  AOL’s 2007 contribution for Stand Up & Speak Out was 6.5 million.

Here are the outstanding achievements of AOL!

1. Nearly 10.6 Million people participated in Stand Up Take Action between the 17th till the 19th of October 2008!

2. Nearly 10.3 Million Trees were planted!
