Leonardo DiCaprio's Foundation Awards $20 Million in Environmental Grants

Leonardo DiCaprio‘s foundation is awarding $20 million in grants in his hope to make the world a more environmentally friendly place.

The $20 million will be spread across more than 100 organizations and it increases his foundation’s total direct financial impact to over $80 million since 1998.

“We are proud to support the work of over 100 organizations at home and abroad. These grantees are active on the ground, protecting our oceans, forests and endangered species for future generations – and tackling the urgent, existential challenges of climate change,” Leo said in a speech delivered to a climate change conference at Yale University on Tuesday (September 19).

Leo has called for urgent action to move to a world powered by renewable energy instead of relying on fossil fuels.

“There exist today many proven technologies in renewable energy, clean transportation, and sustainable agriculture, that we can begin a build a brighter future for all of us,” he said. “Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water. We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late.”

    Never mind. Based on her IG story and the angle she was sitting next to Leo

  • goo

    Her IG Story.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    Thanks. I figured it out after looking at her IG story
    Is she still with Alex Pettyfer? I saw breakup rumors and then engagement… he used to hang out with Leo and his crew

  • commonsense

    And she’s 27-28 so out of Leo’s 25 or under zone but maybe he’s making slow changes to his usual! lol

  • also…

    You can also see Leo in ania000 ig story

  • PirateCat

    Send this JJ some new pics.
    They use this one too often. He looks like he is getting ready to play Mephistopheles in Goethe’s Faust.
    All of the three are Germans.

  • pitta

    Toni and Lorena sinks…

  • commonsense

    So Marloes and Ania must be the 2 blondes that were seen leaving the party with Leo.

  • commonsense

    LOL looks like it!

  • Josie

    You ladies are always so good on finding out who all these girls are.👍 I couldn’t even identify one of them.

  • Josie

    Could he be a little drunk? 🤔 looks to me like that.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    It’s Leo out celebrating his friend’s birthday. Of course he is drunk.

  • Josie

    Lol 😂 okay

  • Guess

    No. Just looks fine. Not like couple of weeks when leaving the club.

  • Josie

    No you’re right. He doesn’t look drunk like back then, but to me he looks a little lit

  • commonsense

    On this girl’s IG story, you can hear and see Leo’s toast to Richie so he is definitely in good spirits. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was lit. lol

  • Guess

    Not sure what you mean. He doees

  • Josie

    Yep, that’s what I’m talking about

  • Narima

    Great news!! The Man really cares for the environment!! Well done, Leo !! He need to stop uisng private jets and he will be 👍

  • Guess

    He looks tired. Lit means drunk lol.

  • Zzzzzz

  • Josie

    I know. 😉 that’s what I first thought when I saw the IG Story of the girl, but maybe you’re right and he is just tried.
    i only mention that bc it makes me wonder again about how much he really drinks.

  • commonsense

    From the urban dictionary: Contrary to popular modern belief, Lit is a term used to describe mildly intoxicated.

  • JanaHelen

    Hi which video do you mean?
    Edit: I have just watched the one you have posted

  • Josie
  • JanaHelen

    Thanks!

  • commonsense

    This seems to be just a preview so I wonder when we’ll get the full video? lol

  • Guess

    Thanks.

  • Guess

    I know. I think last night with the traveling. He does needs to get more sleep. Like at the telethon he looked great.

  • Guess

    He didn’t sound like it, lol.

  • commonsense

    I’m not saying he’s drunk but he probably has a good buzz going.

  • Guess

    I know. I have talked about his drinking before on prior threads. Maybe send him a note on his IG, stop drinking or maybe you’re a functioning alcoholic. This is why needs to work to get away from the boys,clubs and parties for a little bit. I know he cares about his health wearing the monitor but seems to me Leo has the personality needs to be kept busy and probably the attention span of a flea, lol.

  • betterday

    lol

  • ??

    Oooh it looks like Leo kissed that blonde girl??

  • betterday

    Leo is out there creating all sorts of drama in the minds of these ladies, now Lorena is sharing her zodiac traits on stories and added a soundtrack to her early morning coffee snaps with lyrics like ‘you tried to play your games but you don’t play fair, l can do better on my own’ the song is actually titled b.o.m.o – better on my own. l wonder if her tune will change when he nods in her direction again. Oh Leo..

  • Guess

    WOW!! She’s really showing her butt lately and don’t mean in a good way. As for the song, love to hear it. Can you post the video or something?

  • betterday

    l’m telling you!, here’s the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ft9SKYeW78

  • paludal1

  • Guess

  • Guess

    And why did I leave home, lol.

    My co-worker had dinner with Leonardo DiCaprio in NYC last night, I watched 6 episodes of Will and Grace and had brownie crumbs in a mug…

  • Guess

    Leo is taking names and numbers and feeding them beans,lol.

  • betterday

    LOL

  • betterday

    But these girls all know his M.O of over a decade so what exactly do they expect?!

  • Josie

    It’s not Leo, it’s his friend Chuck

  • commonsense

    Poor Lorena….NOT! I don’t feel sorry for any of them. The man’s done the same thing for 20 years.

  • paludal1

    they go in thinking they will be the one to change him, they just won’t learn…

  • Guess

    I like it. Never heard it. The sounds definitely like what you said. Much better on my own and just in it for the pleasure. That sounds like Leo.
