Embracing a Green Vision: A Call to Preserve Our Planet

In a world facing escalating challenges of poaching, dwindling biodiversity, and environmental degradation, my journey as a global ambassador for Tusk Trust and ACCF has been a catalyst for change. Fueled by an unwavering passion for safeguarding our planet, I took a leap into action by founding the Green Vision Foundation. Green Vision stands as a testament to the urgency of creating communal spaces where communities unite to address real issues in conservation. It’s not just an initiative; it’s a movement driven by a shared commitment to protect the Earth and its magnificent inhabitants. At the core of my advocacy lies a profound belief in the power of education as the frontline of conservation. Our obligation to preserve this planet compels us to understand and coexist harmoniously with wildlife. It’s a call to take decisive steps to conserve and replenish Earth’s natural resources, ensuring a legacy of abundance for generations to come. Join me in this transformative journey, where the narrative shifts from despair to hope, from apathy to action. Let’s embark on a mission to not just save our planet but to thrive alongside it. Education is the beacon guiding us, and together, we can build a sustainable future—one where humanity and nature coexist in harmonious balance.

Embracing a Green Vision: A Mother’s Plea for the Planet

In the tender embrace of motherhood, as I cradle the dreams of my two beautiful daughters, the urgency to reshape our world reverberates with newfound intensity. As a global ambassador for Tusk Trust and ACCF, the birth of the Green Vision Foundation became more than a mission—it became a soul-stirring commitment to safeguard our planet for the generations yet to unfold. Biodiversity, the symphony of life that paints our ecosystems with vibrant hues, is not just a scientific concept—it’s the beating heart of our existence. In the lush landscapes where elephants and rhinoceros roam freely, we find the essence of our shared humanity. It’s a call to arms against the impending silence that threatens to engulf our world as precious wildlife teeters on the brink of extinction. As a mother, I stand at the intersection of love and responsibility, compelled to transcend the notion of division and foster unity. I cannot fathom a world where my daughters wake up to a reality devoid of the majestic presence of elephants and the awe-inspiring sight of rhinoceros. The fragility of our natural resources is a stark wake-up call to humanity—a plea from the Earth itself. In the face of this existential crisis, we are not just shaping the fate of nations; we are sculpting the destiny of humanity. Our actions today determine the legacy we leave for tomorrow. Green Vision is not merely a foundation; it’s a testament to the collective strength of hearts beating in unison, striving to protect the irreplaceable wonders bestowed upon us. Join me on this emotional odyssey, where the fate of nations converges with the destiny of our children. Let’s turn the tide from diminishing to flourishing, from despair to hope. Together, we can rewrite the narrative and create a world where every sunrise brings the promise of a thriving planet for the ones we cherish the most.

New Aspen residents Gary and Amy Green are wasting no time getting involved in their new community and beyond.

Next week, the Greens are hosting the “Fire and Ice” fundraiser to support the 100 Billion Meals Challenge & The Future of Food initiatives — an event that Amy said she organized in about a month.

The 100 Billion Meals Challenge launched at the 2022 Forbes Giving Pledge Dinner and Philanthropy Summit with self-help guru Tony Robbins to fund and help organizations across the globe by partnering with those most proven to be effective in combating global hunger.



“I realized that there was a huge need to jump in and be a part of this commitment to deliver one billion meals to families struggling with hunger in the United States,” Amy said.

Recently moving their family from New York to Aspen full time, the Greens have been awarded and honored for their philanthropic work with organizations over the years, including the African Community & Conservation Foundation, the Tusk Trust, and, most recently, the 100 Billion Meals Challenge & The Future of Food.



These three charities all support the climate, the ability to produce fertilizer, and support agricultural efforts in Africa and other emerging nations with the goal of feeding the world and ending world hunger.

Amy, a FOX Sports TV reporter for 20 years, met Gary when he bought his first Minor League baseball team, the Omaha Storm Chasers, from Warren Buffet in 2012.

Gary is a son of American real-estate developer Stephen L. Green, is a real-estate mogul in New York, and has an extensive philanthropic background, having supported various charities around the world.

As a mother of two young children, Amy said she thinks about the future of her daughters Giada Viola, 2, and Gemma Jade, 3 months, and the world she’ll leave to them.

When looking at the climate crisis, worsening statistics, and reports of irreversible damage, as a mother to two young children, she can’t help but think of her daughters, she said, and wants her girls to grow up in a world that understands how important it is to give back. 

“I just don’t understand why anyone must go without a meal. I just don’t understand it,” Amy said.  “I do understand that there’s politics, and sometimes we can’t get the food where we need it to go, but there’s so much waste, and we could do so much with that. People sometimes don’t realize how many people are starving out there.”

Aside from the natural beauty and healthy lifestyle that she wanted to provide her children by moving to Aspen, she also noticed a sense of philanthropy and social responsibility in the community here.

She emphasized that some of the proceeds of the event will go to supporting local efforts to combat food insecurity in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The inaugural “Fire and Ice” benefit gala will be held at the ASPENX Mountain Club on March 17, and bring together celebrities, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists in support of the organization’s mission to fight against the world hunger crisis.

The event, which can only accommodate 200 guests, will feature a red carpet, cocktails, curated food delights, a silent auction, reception, and a live auction.

There also will be live entertainment with special guest performances, including Grammy-award winning rapper Darryl McDaniels from hip hop legacy group Run-DMC, DJCharlie Chan, and stand-up comedian/social media sensation Josh Nasar.

UNICEF will match each $1 awarded to the 100 Billion Meals Challenge throughout the evening.

“My message would be to dig deep in your heart and remember just how very lucky you are every day,” said Amy. “And if you could just give a very little of your time or your abundance towards this cause, it would make a huge difference and so many lives.”
