Donate to support the Sierra Club

Hi everyone!

For those of you who do and don't know me, I want to share a little bit about myself and why I chose to take on this as a personal challenge.

I have always been one who has wanted to do right by the environment at large, something that I have come to cherish more and more over time. But if I'm being honest, it was only recently that I decided to take actual real responsibility of how I can minimize my personal footprint day-in, day-out, in every small and large choice I regularly make. While this definitely falls into the latter category, I see this as an opportunity not only to take more of that responsibility in protecting our planet but also doing so in a way that is incredibly fulfilling to me.

The funds you donate will enable the Sierra Club to do what they have been doing for the past 125+ years, 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.

My goal is to raise at least $1000 for the Sierra Club by May but I'm setting my sights much higher to make as large of an impact that I can! Please help me in preserving this beautiful world by making a donation via my page here - any amount is welcome and unbelievably helpful! 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!

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!
