Some clients make whozits and whatzits galore. Others are committed to preserving nature, educating children, and inspiring millions of visitors. Zion Forever falls into the latter camp. Are they a legit nonprofit? All you need to know is that Sting is a major donor.

The organization prints an annual field guide detailing their upcoming projects and giving donors the exact dollar amount needed to ensure they come to pass. Writing this year’s guide was one of my most rewarding jobs ever. And I’m happy to announce that the Zion Forever Project has already raised more than $1.4 million.
