Earth Day Every Day
Like many people around the world, I’ll be celebrating Earth Day today. And as a Green, I know that Earth Day is about much more than one time actions like recycling or picking up litter (as important as they are) but about ongoing sustainability.
Sustainability is one of the Green Party’s 10 Key Values. Sustainability is the idea that we as humans need to live in concert with the planet for the ongoing maintenance of that planet. We need to live in a manner that allows the Earth to sustain itself for generations to come.
Like the concept of environmental sustainability -- which looks to the long-term and beyond one time actions -- the Green Party can only survive if it is economically sustainable. As an organization, the Green Party relies on individuals who are thinking about its ongoing fiscal health and beyond any one transaction.
As someone who supports the Green Party, I’m asking you to join me in becoming a sustainer -- someone who donates to the Green Party each month. Like you, I know that the struggle for the planet is linked to our struggle for political power. Only the Green Party understands the importance of achieving true environmental sustainability, not just giving lip service to token measures as the Democrats do, or worse yet, denying climate change like Republicans.
The Green Party can only get to the next level if we have the resources to really get our message out there. That requires the economic stability of regular donations -- almost like a regular paycheck -- rather than the boom and bust of cyclical one-time donations.
Won’t you join me as a monthly donor? We have Sustainers giving anywhere from $5 - $150 a month. The average Sustainer donation is $13 but we are grateful for any amount you can give.
Toward a sustainable future Earth Day and every day,
PS - As much as we need monthly donors, we realize some people just can’t commit to that at this time. As always, we are grateful for one-time donations of any amount.
