I have decided to begin donating 100% of my music income to organizations engaged in climate action and ecological preservation. For each donation I make, I will be asking you to match my contributions so that we can work together to double the positive impact.
As a child I loved walking the trails of the local nature preserve and, over the past several years, I've found myself increasingly drawn back toward the natural world. Hiking has been both a way for me to reconnect with my personal history and an opportunity for deep thinking on time, existence, reality, self-organizing systems, life, and death.
Global warming and biodiversity collapse are the most urgent issues of our time. We must all make a commitment to do everything we can, not only for the sake of future generations of humans, but for all the lifeforms that call this planet home.
I’m raising funds for the Sierra Club because they are one of the organizations most aligned with my personal goals in meeting this challenge. 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.
My goal is ̶$̶7̶0̶0̶ ... $1050, I have begun by donating the first $350 which was earned from a show that I played last weekend at Mercury Lounge in New York. 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.
I plan to write more about my what brought me to this decision and my ongoing plans in the near future, but for now if you'd like to learn more about the Sierra Club and their mission, you can check out sierraclub.org
Thanks so much.
