Why should I help?
Human-made greenhouse gases are trapping more heat in the atmosphere, accelerating the increase in global average temperatures. Climate change is impacting our friends, family, neighbors and, yes, the polar bears. By taking the plunge, you'll raise awareness and help fund solutions across MD, VA and DC.
We ask plungers to set a goal of raising $350 or more. Why 350? 350ppm is the level of carbon scientists say we must return to in order to keep winter cold. But don't stop at $350, we'll have special prizes for top fundraisers and more!
To help you get started, we've put together a toolkit with sample emails and other fundraising tips. See the toolkit here.
