When JEM receives your donations we want you to know that your donation will get to work immediately financing aspects of a OneEarth Jubilee economy—even before we redistribute it for ministries in the Jubilee Circles.
Earth doesn’t negotiate on CO2; nor make political deals. Humanity MUST change or various eco-regions will collapse, unable to support current usage.
