It is inspiring and heartening to see so many citizens pitching in with relief efforts in New York and New Jersey following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The drive to meet the immediate and ongoing needs of those affected with shelter, clothing, and food continues, while the focus is slowly beginning to turn to rebuilding.
Global Green USA is committed to helping the East Coast rebuild green and there are three easy steps you can take to help:
1. CITIZEN SANDY: Submit your green rebuilding idea or nominate someone you know who has an idea for a green, rebuilding project that can help make their neighborhood more resilient and help speed a sustainable recovery -- for a chance to win $5,000 and runners-up get $1500 and $1000 for their green rebuilding projects in seed funding from Global Green USA. The contest has been closed. Our Citizen Sandy winner will be announced soon!
2. I AM: If you don't have a green rebuilding idea, show your solidarity and support by sending an “I AM” photo with a low-lying community at risk due to sea level rise and share your commitment to fight climate change. Upload your photo now.
3. SUPPORT FOR SANDY: Support Global Green aid communities devastated by Sandy via our green rebuilding projects including the search for Citizen Sandy, our Solar for Sandy initiative, and green neighborhood planning for rebuilding. Make a donation now.
