"I have decided to include Greenpeace, and a few other charities in my will. It was an easy decision for me. I have donated money and time through my life and want to continue this donation after I pass away. I trust Greenpeace to use the money I have donated to help environmental causes around the world where it is most needed."
Why did you decide to include Greenpeace in your Will?
"My family is glad that I have set things out clearly in my will. It wasn’t hard to do, I just asked the lawyer to write it in and he did."
"I think seeing the activists in boats sailing next to and boarding Japan’s whaling boats."
Was it difficult to write or amend your Will?
What’s your first memory of Greenpeace?
"I think all of the Greenpeace activists are very brave and I admire their courage for protesting and highlighting environmental issues around the world. "
"Dedicated people tried very hard to help the environment, but there were very dark forces
which they had to fight against, who only thought about profits, greed and power. "
"They know I have always been passionate about the environment (I have a Science degree in Zoology and Immunology and a Graduate Diploma in Environmental Science). They think my support of Greenpeace is an extension of that."
What Greenpeace work do you feel most proud about?
When your family find out that you support Greenpeace what do they say?
"I am pleased to help in my small way. I feel very humble compared to the very dedicated volunteers who give so much of their time and energy. We must work together and never give up because that’s what the big companies and governments want us to do. There are very clever people who can achieve all we need to save the environment. We must all work together to allow the environment to flourish."
"Thank you Greenpeace members for all of the wonderful work you do."
