To those of you who have already given, congratulations….we are nearly to our 2012 goal!  If you haven’t had the chance to participate there is no better time than now.  We are only $4,000 away from our goal.  With just a $1 a pay period contribution you can help ensure we meet that goal by Friday.  Remember the campaign ends on November 30th so this is the last week left to give.   Donate Today, Don’t Delay!

Your contributions make a real difference in the lives of people across the state and around the world.

Not sure how much to give?  See below for what several dollars a month can do:

  • $10 per month buys all the supplies for one school team and teacher to participate in the Wisconsin Envirothon (Wisconsin Environmental Education Fund).
  • $25 a month will buy a tent heating stove, 3 blankets and a lantern for a family in Afghanistan (Neighbor to Nation)

Again, it’s quick and simple!  I encourage you to log in and consider making a contribution because every dollar really does make a difference.
