Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I was recently accepted to be part of a youth delegation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, 16th Conference of the Parties in Mexico, from November 29 to December 10, 2010. Through an organization called SustainUS, I will work with 25 other dedicated US youth. We will develop policy recommendations, collaborate with international climate activists, and work tirelessly to ensure that a global climate deal is bold, just, and equitable, and ensures the survival of all peoples. Together, the delegation will contribute an estimated 1,800 hours of volunteer service!

The only non-profit program of its kind in the country, the SustainUS Agents of Change program has successfully increased youth stakeholder involvement at the United Nations for the past eight years. As an accredited non-governmental organization, SustainUS will effectively engage government policymakers at the international level. The SustainUS delegation plays a vital role in calling for American leadership on a bold, binding and just international climate treaty with science-based targets. The delegation will join hundreds of international youth to ensure that all countries understand that we have no time to wait. The world must act now, and act boldly upon the global demands for a just, safe, and sustainable future.

Many of you may guess that traveling to the UN conference is expensive. I hope you will be willing to support my work on this crucial issue, and contribute a tax-deductible donation to fund my travel. I greatly appreciate any amount at all that you can afford. In return, I plan to keep all of you informed of my experiences through blog entries, pictures and online media. Our success as a delegation depends on donations. Even a $10 contribution will house me for a night. $5 will provide me with a meal. I would greatly appreciate anything you can contribute. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns or just to chat!
