Our revered friends at Transition U.S. - a nonprofit organization devoted to the development of Transition initiatives across the country - recently shared a neat opportunity with us. (See Rob Hopkins’ The Transition Handbook to learn more about the Transition movement).
By donating to Transition U.S. now through December 12th, your dollars will be quadrupled by generous matching donors. What a terrific way to support the Transition movement and help communities across the nation become more resilient and sustainable!
Here’s the full scoop from Transition U.S.’s websiteTurn your $1 into $4! When one donor heard about our $100,000 Challenge Grant, she made a tremendous pledge - she’s offered to match every dollar we raise dollar for dollar up to $5,000, through midnight on Sunday, December 12. Give $25, and she’ll match it. And then that $50 will be matched again by our Challenge Grant, turning your gift of $25 into $100 for the Transition Movement. That’s two matches in one, which means each dollar you give over the next ten days will be quadrupled as we move within striking distance of our $100,000 goal! Donate online here .
As always, we thank you deeply for your support and for all you do to make the world a better place.
About Transition U.S. Transition US is a nonprofit organization that provides inspiration, encouragement, support, networking, and training for Transition Initiatives across the United States. We are working in close partnership with the Transition Network, a UK based organization that supports the international Transition Movement as a whole.
The Transition Movement is a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected.
We believe that we can make the transition to a more sustainable world. We hope that you will join us.
