My thanks to Katie for her suggestion! This month I'm choosing to support the World Wildlife Fund. The WWF is a multinational conservation organization that (among other things) protects natural areas and endangered species, and promotes sustainable and more efficient uses of resources and energy. Being a humanist, I am drawn to the WWF's mission of aspiring to the greater good of humanity.
There are many ways to support the WWF including species adoption, buying apparel promoting the WWF, or purchasing crafts that support indigenous communities. If you don't have a few dollars to spare, there are also ways to make a difference that don't involve money! Click here to find out how you can help combat climate change by making a few changes around your house. You can also take part in "Earth Hour." Turn off your lights for one hour on March 28, 2009, starting at 8:30pm, to raise awareness and take action to fight climate change.
Also in March, Jeremiah and I are participating in the "Strut Your Mutt" walk sponsored by the SPCA. It's a 3K Walk/Fun Run on Saturday, March 21, 2009. We'll be bringing our dogs and supporting the cause. We'd love for you to join us out there on the walk, even if you don't have a dog to bring along! Or, consider donating on our behalf if you'd like. My page can be found here and Jeremiah's page is here. Thanks and have a great month of March!
