THE STORY:

Greetings Friends and Family--

As you know, I am passionate about minimizing the impacts of global warming.  With more than 99% of the world's climate scientists telling us we must act to protect our children and grandchildren from human-caused global warming, I cannot help but take them seriously!

Because of the urgency of addressing climate change, I am eager to raise money for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN).  After all, CCAN has been called by  international climate leader Bill McKibben "the most effective regional climate organization in the world."  

CCAN staff, volunteers, and board members work energetically througout Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia to pass climate-friendly laws,  promote green energy, and educate the public about what's at stake, and about what they can do to protect our climate.

CCAN's biggest fundraising event of the year is its Polar Bear Plunge.  On January 28, dedicated activists will take a brisk plunge into the Potomac River!   These crazy "Plungers" invite their friends and family to support their plunge by making a donation to CCAN.  

While I have participated in CCAN's Polar Bear Plunge five times, I won't be joining the dozens plunging into the Potomac this year because my husband Andy and I will be in Israel.  

BUT--I realized there is a way I can still contribute to CCAN!  So here in Israel, just I took a 'March into the Mediterranean!'  After all, climate change affects the entire planet.  And I promise to send photos of my Israeli plunge to all who sponsor me by making a donation to CCAN.

So I extend to you my heartfelt invitation to sponsor my 2017 dip, this time on the other side of the world.  I'm sure you feel, as I do, that strengthening effective groups like CCAN is more important now than ever before.  With Trump poised to undo the progress we've made on climate at the federal level, we must redouble our efforts at the state and regional levels to make headway in protecting the climate.

So please do join me in combating climate change!  Even if you don't live in the mid-Atlantic region, strengthening CCAN is good for all of us.  With the global nature of climate change, success anywhere helps all of us everywhere.  So please strengthen the work of the world's most effective regional climate action group by sponsoring my plunge!

Thank you so much!
