Time Is Running Out to Spend a Buck for Charity
Thanks to everyone who has reached into their pocket and kicked-in a buck for charity. Hundreds of you have responded (many with more than a dollar) as eleven environmental websites team up to make the world a better place. Together, we’re supporting some great charities. And you get to choose the two that receive 100% of the collected donations:
- Sustainable Harvest: Helping farmers and communities in tropical regions
- Kiva: The revolutionary microloan agency
- Healthy Child, Healthy World: Creating safer, greener homes for kids
- Environmental Working Group: The environmental watchdog
- Water for People: Supporting clean, safe water for everyone
Please take a moment to look these organizations over. Pick your favorite, then go to our Buck for Charity Page and vote with your dollar. You can also donate directly through PayPal to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summer is a lean time for charities
The summer months are always tough for charitable organizations: People are busy, discretionary funds get diverted to well-deserved vacations, and economic times are currently hard. To be honest, donations have slowed since our initial call, and we’re playing catch-up to meet our goals.
We’d love to present the winning charities with a meaningful check. So would you please consider donating right now? Deadline is Wednesday, July 8th. Each of these charities matter, and every dollar counts.
Share this message with others
You can multiply your donation by passing this along to others. Twitter about it; email the article to friends; post it on StumbleUpon or your favorite social media service. There’s still time to make a difference.
Remember: The winning charity will receive 100% of the donated funds. We’re not holding anything back. Together, we can work for the good — a buck at a time. Thank you for your support.
Participating websites: The Good Human, Twilight Earth, Lighter Footstep, Green Upgrader, The Grass Stain Guru, My Green Side, The Smart Mama, A Little Greener Every Day, Fake Plastic Fish, Allie’s Answers, and Natural Papa.
