Season of Giving Post #1

Last week for Thanksgiving we posted our first Season of Giving list, targeting our first recommendations on the most pressing environmental issue: climate change. If you do nothing else environmental this year, please consider donating, volunteering or otherwise supporting any of the groups listed in our post “Season of Giving: 33 Ways to Support Climate Action”. Remember, one-time donations are awesome, but recurring monthly donations are what these groups really need to effectively and efficiently tackle the world’s greatest and most urgent crisis, especially when our own government has threatened to roll back all climate change legislation and international agreements.

What can you do today?

Support climate action charities in any and every way that you can. Spread the word to others about climate change and what you are doing to fight the crisis. Check in with Everyday Earthiness on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ for daily Green Giving tips through Christmas to help with your holiday shopping, and look for weekly Season of Giving and Green Giving posts on all our social media outlets, including LinkedIn and here at Make a commitment to give greener and to make a positive impact through giving this holiday season. Share these ideas to help others get a little greener this holiday season.
