BENEFITING: CHESAPEAKE CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK
EVENT DATE: Jan 23, 2016
The "Keep Winter Cold" Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN's biggest fundraising event, powering victories to move our region off of fossil fuels and to clean energy. Each year, activists, friends and families show their commitment to fighting climate change by jumping in the icy Potomac River.
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!
You can mail us a check. Help us avoid credit card fees by mailing any donations above $250. Put the full name of the plunger you are sponsoring in the memo line: CCAN P.O. Box 11138 Takoma Park, MD 20913
