EarthShare Oregon giving campaigns at more than 100 workplaces are ramping up this month!  The funds we raise now through the end of 2013 will support programs in our 80 member charities -- 7 of which are new this year!

Did you know you can easily support the great work of groups like:

Beyond Toxics -- $2 per pay period to Beyond Toxics will subsidize five low-income parents to attend an asthma care and green cleaning workshop, where they can earn a Green Cleaning Certificate that adds to their job skills.

Bark – Saved 2,500 Mt. Hood acres from logging & prevented construction of 14 miles of new roads (which pollute nearby streams with erosion runoff).

Columbia Land Trust – Protected 2,755 acres of important habitat and riverfront lands throughout the Columbia River Basin, and restored 15 miles of the Klickitat River to a more natural state.

Institute for Applied Ecology -- Engaged more than 500 students in service-learning annually, and conducted six
plantings of native species or outdoor field trips.

Growing Gardens - $6.25 a pay period builds a garden bed for a disabled and very low-income home gardener who may not otherwise be able to afford fresh food.

McKenzie River Trust -- $5.50 per pay period can buy and protect more than 100 square feet of acreage along a river that will provide clean water for people, fish, and wildlife forever.

Oregon League of Conservation Voters Education Fund -- $2 per paycheck will allow a volunteer canvasser to knock on 24 doors, encouraging pro-environment voters to participate in important elections.

Join EarthShare and our member charities in safeguarding clean water, protecting clean air, creating sustainable jobs, preventing waste, and fighting climate change.  With your help, we can care for the environmental legacy we all share.
