Dear COEJL Friends,
We are only a few weeks away from celebrating Thanksgiving, a distinctly American holiday where friends and family come together to celebrate our bounty and take stock of our blessings. It also the began the holiday shopping season. Each year, Black Friday creeps up earlier and earlier. And then comes Cyber Monday. Today we are excited to add to the calendar with a new holiday – #GivingTuesday, focused on giving back.
COEJL is leading the Jewish community in tackling the largest challenge of our generation – climate change. We believe, with thoughtful policy, the United States can cut carbon pollution, develop secure, domestic energy sources, and spark a green technology revolution that will spur economic growth. Though it seems simple, it won’t be easy, and we need your help elevating the issue, changing hearts and minds, building coalitions, and establishing the political will for real change.
We are kicking off our annual campaign this year today with #GivingTuesday. Our goal is $15,000 and every one of those dollars will be matched. There is an old saying that ‘giving is better than receiving.’ Our task is to give coming generations an Earth and a nation that are healthy, safe, prosperous – better than those we received.
Join us on #GivingTuesday!
