Work we believe in (A letter from Paul Hawken and Julia Butterfly Hill)

Topics: ,

Dear Friends, 

As you know, Women’s Earth Alliance has a $100,000 match on the table. This morning Amira and Melinda told us that they are 75% there.  As WEA Advisors and donors, we see this as a tremendous moment for this world-class organization. 

If you haven’t already (which many of you have!), we invite you to include Women’s Earth Alliance in your year-end contributions.  There has never been a better time to step in and support their work because your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar. 

When supported with the tools they need, grassroots women leaders are an unstoppable force.
Solome from Uganda is a perfect example.  She works with grandmothers who are left to care for as many as 12 grandchildren because their parents have died from HIV/AIDS.  Through her work with WEA and the Global Women’s Water Initiative, she has taught grandmothers throughout her region how to bring clean water to their families using rainwater harvesting techniques. Hundreds of people in this community now have access to a safe, hope-filled future. 

Here are the ways for you to participate in inspired giving to WEA:
1. Make a one-time contribution or a 3-year pledge today. Gifts of any size make a huge difference.
2. Buy a WEA Gift Card for a loved one. (Here’s a video to tell you how.)
3. Join the WEA Giving Circle by making a three-year pledge (which will be matched dollar-for-dollar each year)
Thank you for being a part of the WEA family and helping us reach this unprecedented dollar-for-dollar match.
 

With joy,

Paul Hawken and Julia Butterfly Hill

We shared with you here the exciting news about a very generous donor’s offer to Women’s Earth Alliance.  Every donation to Women’s Earth Alliance before December 31, 2009 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $100,000.
We are happy to report that we are 70% there!  With just $30,000 more to go, we are so close to reaching our goal and maximizing this golden opportunity.

If you are thinking about donating, this is the time!  Are you also shopping for gifts for friends and family?

Women’s Earth Alliance coordinates resources, technology and training for women leaders on the frontlines of the world’s climate change crisis.  When supported with the tools they need — grassroots women leaders are an unstoppable force!

We hope you’ll help us celebrate her success, and the promise of grassroots women leaders rising to solve the world’s problems one village at a time, by donating this season.
