April is Earth Month. Earth Month is the time that Aveda comes together as a network to make a real difference for clean water, because Clean Water Changes Lives. In 2012, we exceeded our goal and raised an unbelievable $4.6 million to protect people’s access to clean water at home and around the world. As we enter our 7th year of focusing on this important initiative, we have a challenging network goal of $5 million. On April 14th, I will join over 150 people in our 2nd Annual Houston Earth Month Pedal Pub race. Events, like this, are taking place across the globe throughout the month. With your help, again we will make a world of difference.
All the proceeds from this year's ride will be donated to the Gulf Restoration Network. The GRN has a vision of uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the resources of the Gulf Region for future generations. The GRN pursues campaigns on priority issues affecting the entire Gulf region, including water quality, wetlands, sustainable fisheries, smart energy, hurricane rebuilding, and species-at-risk. Please consider supporting me and making a difference on a local level.
