The green and healthy living movement can and should be about spending less: reduction, reduction, reduction. While that is still at the heart of green living, environmentalism can be another beast altogether. There are projects, organizations, and campaigns all worth their weight in sustainably grown, fairly traded coffee at least. These are the times when you consider whether your savings on energy can be put toward the greater good through one of these projects.
Social Good, Win Honey With Lead Safe America
Today you have the chance to do some good – lead poisoning awareness and prevention – and win a grand prize of a case of 12 jars of assorted natural honey (value $120) from Marshall’s Farm in Napa Valley. Marshall’s Farm is used by restaurants like The French Laundry in Napa.
To become eligible to win, ask your friends and family to make a pledge (using one of the links below) in support of the Lead Safe America Foundation‘s lead poisoning prevention outreach work – educating parents & protecting kids.
My friend Tamara is the Executive Director of LSAF. She is making a documentary film, MisLEAD: America’s Secret Epidemic, that has already helped protect children, by educating parents around the country.
Through her nonprofit, Tamara is working on raising money to finish the film to bring this message to the world. Your friend’s pledges will help finish this important film (& they’re tax-deductible contributions to a nonprofit!)
There are several ways to pledge or donate (see the links below) and there will be two grand-prize winners in this contest (two cases of honey) and other prizes as well! The grand prizes go to the people who…
-Get the greatest number of pledges and contributions by March 3rd @ 9:35 pm Pacific time, even if pledges are just $1 they count towards this goal!.
-Get the greatest value in pledges and contributions by March 3rd @ 9:35 pm Pacific time. You do not have to make a pledge to be eligible & if you do make a pledge, your pledge does not count towards your total, but can count towards a friend’s total!
So please ask your friends to make a pledge (even just $1 makes a difference) – and have them send a note with their pledge with your name and code AATT. You could win one of many prizes including $120 in world-famous natural Napa Valley honey (an assorted case of 12 jars – with natural honey from Orange Blossom, Blackberry, Clover, Sage, Lavender, Eucalyptus & more!)
Ways to Pledge or Donate
Many believe that lead poisoning went the way of lead paint in our homes, but it simply isn’t true. Learn the facts, share them widely, and if you feel so moved, make a pledge.
