 Why Donate Bitcoin or Other Cryptocurrency to Pure Earth

You can improve the health of 100 million children by joining Pure Earth’s Project R.E.A.L.M.E., a $40 million campaign to safeguard the world’s children from lead and mercury poisoning and pollution. From bedrooms in Bangladesh to kitchens in Kansas, we use pragmatic solutions to get the lead and mercury out of our soil, air, water, food, bloodstream and implement systemic change to stop these pollutants at the source. These toxins know no borders, ending up in baby food, spices, and seafood. They poison our people and our planet. Children are particularly vulnerable to the ravages of these toxins which impact neurological development, lessen IQs, and steal a child’s full potential. Support Project R.E.A.L.M.E. to Reduce Exposure to Adverse Lead and Mercury Everywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why pollution?
Did you know pollution is the largest environmental cause of death in the world today? With 9 million deaths a year attributed to pollution and over 90% of those deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries, pollution is putting the world’s most vulnerable children at risk, impacting lives, the global economy, and all our connected futures. But this global threat can be solved. High-income countries have achieved a much greater level of environmental health in the second half of the 20th century. The same solutions can and must be replicated in countries suffering from life-threatening pollution today. Pure Earth is the leading organization implementing pollution solutions. Your donation will help Pure Earth continue implementing proven strategies to protect children from being poisoned.
