Pono Supports Rainforest Connection
Pono means righteous. When we began this journey, the soul of music needed a voice, and you, our backers, banded together to give it one.
Today, independently of Pono, I want to tell you about another subject of great urgency, and a solution that can — with our help — do something truly important.
Climate change is the defining challenge of the 21st century, and every day we ask ourselves, what can we do about it? Well, this is Kickstarter. This is where we band together to turn great ideas into real solutions. Today, I'd like to introduce you to another bold undertaking, and to ask you to join me on Kickstarter in making it real.
Today, please join me in supporting Rainforest Connection, a creative and timely technology that can fight climate change and mass extinction at a point of immediate impact... by protecting endangered rainforests in an entirely new way.
You helped us build Pono to save the sound of music, and now, we've got a chance to help save the music of the rainforest. Through the power of sound, this technology can give the forest a voice. When the forest is threatened, the forest can speak. And for the first time, you can hear it.
This whole endeavor becomes truly powerful when every one of us steps forward to give as little as $10 to this unique campaign. If you watch this short Kickstarter video, I’m sure you will see why this is so important.
When Pono backers join me in supporting Rainforest Connection they will also be given access to an exclusive reward—a unique ultra-high-resolution audio download of the sounds of the rainforest. Trust me when I say you've never heard anything quite like this, and just wait until you hear it on your Pono!
I'm also proud to announce that I will be personally donating 10 limited edition PonoPlayers to the Rainforest Connection campaign to be offered to 10 generous backers as rewards.
Once again, please join me in supporting the growth of this solution.
Thanks, Neil Young, Pono
