BENEFITING: CHESAPEAKE CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK
EVENT: CCAN Polar Plunge 2016
EVENT DATE: Jan 30, 2016
I'm joining in with the rest of the CCAN Board to up our financial support this year. For stent reasons, I'm only going in up to my knees and then splashing - a modified plunge, rather than a whole-hog dive, to satisfy safety concerns yet hopefully prove determination enough to warrant your support.
For me climate change is the preeminent moral issue of our time as we face a situation never encountered by humanity in its history. With enormous consequences for all of us, including especially the poor and most marginalized, our future generations, and all the other species as well, we each have a responsiblility to do what we utmost can so we can look our kids in the eye. Plus, this issue is extrememly time-limited; we cannot pass this on to our children to do better than us. Enough said.
