Layla's Birthday Fundraiser for the Sierra Club

Layla P

Layla P

Instead of asking for presents for my birthday this year, 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. You don't always get to make a difference when you celebrate special occasions, but with Team Sierra, you can.

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.

My goal is $300, please help me cross the finish line by making a donation. And when you do, let me know why you care about doing good by nature in the “Words of Encouragement” box. I would love to hear from you!

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!
Layla

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!

Layla, I was so inspired to read about your good work in Sierra Club's Summer Newsletter. It filled me with courage and joy. Although I am courageous, I was feeling low. Yet, your story reminded me of what I love. I am a professional storyteller and author of several books on nature themes. I want to send you copies of my books and CDs. You can look over my work at www.straussstoryteller.com. My most recent CD (not yet listed on the site) is "Dreams of Animals: Myths & Personal Stories of Animals." Currently, I am working on a new book of myths about plants with a wonderful botanist who will write the science that is contained in each myth. Someone with your gifts should be able to tell some good stories and I would be delighted to coach you. You can contact me at susan@straussstoryteller.com or 541-610-5350 and let me know where I should send the books and CDs. Thank you so much.
