For every $50 donated I will get a $10 match, up to $500 of donations!
DID YOU KNOW?
- Only 18% of the world's energy is renewable.
- Global warming could raise the sea level so high it would flood 340-480 million peoples' houses.
- Hurricanes have gotten more frequent, longer, and stronger since the early 1980s, destroying homes and lives, and will continue to increase in intensity as the globe warms.
In Social Studies this year we have been learning about the Global Goals. The Global Goals are a list of 17 goals that are designed to make this world more sustainable. 193 contries have agreed to implement them.
For a school project, I decided to make a difference in the world by supporting Goal #13, Climate Action, because as Henry David Thoreau said "What is the use of a house if you don't have a decent planet to put it on?"
I have researched many charities and have chosen to donate to The Enviornmental Defence Fund (EDF). EDF is dedicated to reducing and adapting to the effects of global warming. They also have 4/4 stars on Charity Navigator.
Please consider donating to this important cause and spreading knowledge of the global goals and climate change.
We NEED to act before it is to late!
(This campaign will end on January 13, 2020)
