I came across Crowdrise through my favorite actress and role model - Sophia Bush. I have always loved One Tree Hill, and when checking in on her site, I read her blog and was amazed at the compassion, kindness and support she shows for her causes. Truly an inspiration!
I had an amazing childhood filled with camping, roadtrips and the great outdoors. I am very fortunate and have had the chances to travel to many places in this world. I always appreciated the beauty of the world, but one day, it hit me. There are so many unhealthy things going on that are damaging our Earth instead of preserving and healing it!
I was at the bookstore one day, looking through the discount books when I came across "An Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore. I flipped through it, and looked at the price. It was 5 bucks! That's it! How could i not buy it?! So I brought it home, and actually found my boyfriend reading it in bed that night. And he does not read just anything. I started reading it and was amazing at what I saw. That we are clashing with the earth and contributing to global warming. I had no idea of the studies that had been done, or they're scary results and predictions. I couldn't believe this wasn't a more public, widely-known problem. I rented and watched the movie version of "An Inconvenient Truth" and I made up my mind. I want to do good for the Earth and for generations to come.
There are far too many beautiful things on this Earth to just let it be worn down. Together we can make a difference!
