Join My Rock Band!
Last year, I helped organize Rock to Rock -- a fun, beautiful celebration of Earth Day and our local environment. We got 300 folks out to support our local environment. We raised $10,000 for great environmental organizations. I was blown away by the enthusiasm and generosity of everyone involved. It made me proud of our community.
This year, I think we can do even more. I think we can raise $25,000. I think we can turn out 500 people. I think it's going to rock.
Care to join in the fun? One easy way: you can make a pledge. I'm raising funds for Common Ground. And I'm getting a little ambitious here: $766, the combined heights of West Rock and East Rock. Want to lend a hand?
- $35 lets us grow a row of beautiful tomatoes, destined for free school lunches for all our high school students.
- $75 means that 10 elementary kids can go on a field trip to Common Ground, and dive into the farm and forest.
- $100 pays for the time our college counselor needs to help a senior through the college application process.
- $150 will pay for a 9-week after-school program for a low-income New Haven student, connecting them with outdoor adventures and environmental leadership.
Thank you for joining my Rock Band. And, if you're in New Haven, you should sign up to join us on the 24th ...
