Support Cool Davis on the BIG Day of Giving!
Is action against climate change where your heart is? Then on May 6th, please support Cool Davis, and have your donations multiplied by matching funds.
Tuesday, May 6, marks the BIG Day of Giving! It is an exciting initiative that seeks to support the non-profits locally that do so much to serve our community. Please consider giving to Cool Davis and our work to support residents to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to a changing climate, and improve the quality of life for all in our community. Our work is about shaping the world we want to live in.
We have ambitious and exciting plans for the coming months to reach out to 5000 households by the end of the year, which will need volunteers as well as money to produce materials, hold events, do publicity, and go door-to-door in every neighborhood. But it won’t happen if we don’t have the resources.
The Big Day of Giving offers us that opportunity, because donations made to Cool Davis at givelocalnow.org on May 6 will be eligible for a boost from a pool of matching funds. The more you give, the more it will generate! http://givelocalnow.org/cooldavis
