Give Big takes place on May 8, 2019
GiveBIG – the region’s largest 24 hour display of community and generosity is just 3 weeks away! 501 Commons will be facilitating GiveBIG this year on Wednesday, May 8th. The one-day online giving campaign will support your local non-profits in their efforts to make Washington an even better place to live. During the 24 hour giving window on May 8th, we encourage you give to CELP so we can continue to protect Washington’s waters through education, advocacy, policy reform, and public interest litigation.
2019 is shaping up to be an extremely critical year for water. The imminent threats facing salmon and our southern resident Orca population, compounded with the effects of climate change, have us working harder than ever. The coming months are forecast to be warmer and drier than normal, putting more and more areas around the state at risk. The only way we can proactively combat this is to start planning now and encourage the state to prioritize sound, sustainable water policy. All this makes CELP’s work, and your support, more critical than ever. We rely on generous donations from our members and supporters to hold our lawmakers and agencies accountable for protecting Washington’s rivers and streams. What better way to donate then to participate in the largest 24 hour online giving campaign in the region?!
Your GiveBIG gift will allow CELP to advocate for sustainable and smart water policy in court and in the state legislature, provide education on current issues in water law, and conduct outreach to citizen activists, tribes, and other stakeholders so we can work together to protect our streams and rivers. We’re asking you to mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more info on early giving.
