It’s Dr Jane Goodall’s 80th birthday on 3 April 2014, but how to celebrate? Well, what Dr Jane would like most for her birthday is for Roots & Shoots groups around the world to do projects to make a difference in their communities, no matter how big or small, and to share these projects with the Roots & Shoots global family. Why not dedicate your current school, home or youth group project to Dr Jane, and upload it to our website to share with the world (you could even win a Roots & Shoots Award)?
Three Ways To Help Celebrate Dr. Jane’s Birthday
1. SIGN JANE’S BIRTHDAY CARD
Make sure your well wishes and birthday greetings make it to Jane and tell her about what she’s inspired you to do in your community for her birthday. She will be so touched and so pleased you want to make a difference. Sign the card!
2. SAVE THE DATE: JANE’S GOOGLE HANGOUT BIRTHDAY PARTY
On April 3, 2014 at 7 pm UK time (that’s 2pm EDT if you’re in the States), join the worldwide Roots & Shoots community for Jane’s Google Hangout Birthday Party! This live Google+ hangout (also featured on YouTube) will feature information on projects completed in Dr. Jane’s honour, birthday wishes from around the globe and a special message from Dr. Jane herself. Learn more about the Hangout!
3. SHARE YOUR PROJECTS
Share your birthday projects on social media using the hashtag #80yearsofJane, tweeting to us directly @JaneGoodallUK or telling us about it on Facebook (you can find us at https://www.facebook.com/RootsnShoots.org.uk). Make sure that you also upload it to our website to share with the world (you could even win a Roots & Shoots Award).
