Love the Environment? So does NJ350! #GivingTuesday

350NJ

If you are a fan of clean water, clean air, and helping the environment, NJ350 is a group to considering donating to this Giving Tuesday.

The United Nations panel on climate change has released a study showing that the world is in more trouble than we had thought. Warming and related damage has accelerated. The window for correcting the problem and avoiding disaster has become much smaller. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/07/climate/ipcc-climate-report-2040.html

These are frightening times. We need a transformation in the way we live that is enormous in scale, and we need it very fast.

What can you do? Many things. Write letters, reduce your carbon footprint, support climate friendly candidates, educate your friends and family, etc. It is a long list.

Today we are writing about one action item that we hope is also on your list, and that is making donations to organizations that are fighting to save our planet. Specifically, we are hoping you will make an end of year gift to 350NJ-Rockland.

We are proud that in 2018 we did the following!

·     Held a beginning of year planning retreat and a membership soiree

·     Partnered on a screening of “How To Let Go”

·     Participated in the NJ Climate Summit

·     Provided leadership for fossil fuel divestment campaigns in NY and NJ

·     Participated in Food and Water Watch’s OFF-ON Fossil Fuels Campaign

·     Played a leadership role in opposing the Gateway Expansion Project

#givingtuesday

Are you done waiting for a cure? Every 65 seconds, someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer’s. So there’s no time to waste. Not for them, and not for the people already living with Alzheimer’s – or the carepartners who put their lives on hold. We need to accelerate our search for a cure. That’s why a generous donor has given us the opportunity to do just that by matching your gift FIVE TIMES in honor of Giving Tuesday!
