Explore, enjoy, and protect the planet

Donate to support the Sierra Club

John Smigelski

I’m raising funds for the Sierra Club. Nature’s done good by me, and now it’s my turn to be doing good by nature.

These are hairy times. What are you doing about it?

I am shaving my mustache – if you help me save the planet. This bad boy has been around since the Nixon administration. Many have never seen the upper lip it hides. The “many” include family members, friends from upstate NY and California, and the wearer of the mustache himself for over 40 years.

What will it take to see what's under that stash?

I am asking for donations to Team Sierra to support the Sierra Club's environmental efforts. As soon as the amount donated reaches $250, shaving will commence. Can we get this done before I turn 70? Before the end of the year? Before the end of America as we know it?

Bonus – everyone who donates will get exclusive photos of the great reveal and possibly a video!

Double Bonus - To multiply your positive impact, an anonymous donor is providing a matching gift for donations made to Team Sierra.

I care about the places we live, and the funds you donate will enable the Sierra Club to do things like:
• Provide cleaner, cheaper, energy.
• Protect our land, water, and air – from our backyards to the other side of the globe.
• Save animals being threatened with extinction.
• Make the outdoors accessible for all of us.

I know they’re going to take the funds we raised and use them to have the biggest impact on the issues we care about.

This is important to me because the Sierra Club is making our communities better – they’re protecting natural places near cities and suburbs and working hard to ensure clean air and water for all. I want to help them succeed.

If you'd like to learn more about their mission, you can check out sierraclub.org, or participate in their campaigns at addup.org!

Thanks so much!

P.S. I was amazed that Sierra Club has been saving our environment for the last 125 years! They are determined, focused, and need our help!

It's not every day you can support two worthy causes at the same time. Plus, not that you need it, it's always good to lose a few extra ounces before the holidays.

Looking forward to seeing the 'after' pictures!
