I’m contacting you today on behalf of Audubon’s TogetherGreen initiative. TogetherGreen is all about acting today to shape a better, healthier environment tomorrow. I’m very excited to invite you and your readers to join that journey by volunteering in your community as part of the brand new volunteer program, TogetherGreen Community Passport!
So, what exactly is the Community Passport and how does it work? First, start thinking about what types of volunteer activities you’d like to participate in. Next, simply visit http://www.togethergreen.org/communitypassport and read “How It Works.”
By logging on to http://www.togethergreen.org/communitypassport you’ll be able to download your Community Passport, which will allow you to get involved in as many different unpaid conservation volunteer activities as possible from April 22, 2009 - July 22, 2009. Participants need to be over the age of 18 and log participation in a variety of conservation categories, called Pursuits. After that, it just comes down to who has the most volunteer hours logged!
As you know, volunteering has great benefits for you, your community, and conservation. Over time, your “Community Passport” will become a record of your great volunteer contributions and a first hand account of how your efforts have helped your community.
Ready for more exciting news? For your hard work during the Community Passport Program, you and will have the chance to win special prizes, online recognition and downloadable Passport certificates. The most committed volunteer will win a grand prize of two LL Bean bicycles for emission-free traveling fun. Other environmentally friendly prizes include a Sierra Designs Tent, an REI Trail Pack and water bottles, and TogetherGreen t-shirts.
The Community Passport contest is part of the five-year TogetherGreen alliance between Audubon and Toyota, created to help individuals act now to cause a positive impact in their homes, their communities, and the world. True to the goals of TogetherGreen program, the Passport emphasizes what individual actions can accomplish for the environment—and how much they can add up. Please let me know if you’d be interested in sharing this exciting contest, as I would be more than happy to send over more information and Passport Logos. Looking forward to hearing from you!
