Rebecca's Climate Leadership Training Extravaganza
Organized by: Rebecca Bateman
EVENT DATE May 05, 2015
Hello, and thanks for visiting my page!
First, let me start by saying that the fact you are reading this means a lot. If you know me, then you know that I don't ask for help lightly. This is something I'm passionate about and think is worthwhile.
I've been accepted in the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training next month in Cedar Rapids, IA.
What is that? The Leadership Corps is an initiative of the Climate Reality Project, founded by Al Gore in 2006 to take action on fighting climate change. The 3-day training is designed to create leaders in the field who can successfully inspire and engage others toward this end. Speakers include politicians, CEOs, business leaders, and even Vice President Gore himself. It's a fantastic opportunity.

To that end, when I was accepted in to the free training, I realized that I can't pass this up, even though it means footing the cost of travel myself. As I'm between jobs, my funds are few and far between. However, I'm going to make this happen. If you support these goals (or even if you are fervently anti-environment but support me as a passionate person), I hope you'll consider even a bucks toward this. I'm keeping costs low - will probably drive to Iowa (Ack! The carbon emissions!) and book my lodging on AirBnB - but it's still going to be at least $500, at my most optimistic estimate.
In exchange for your help, I promise to share details of my travels as well what I'm learning and how you can change the world too!
Even if you can't donate, just a few kind words of encourage would be welcome. Thank you!
