It's now just past Thanksgiving, and we're beginning that rush to the holidays, the annual Fall AGU meeting where we'll present our work, the end of the quarter at Stanford where I teach each Fall, the end of the old year, and the ringing in of the new. It's a time of thanks, sharing, love, music and wonder - and sometimes too much to do!
For those of you who took the time on Giving Tuesday to support our work at Ice911, our deep and heartfelt thanks - you got us a long way towards our fundraising goal, and we appreciate this very much.
For everyone else who didn't quite have the time yet, we hope you'll donate generously before the year's end, so we can meet and exceed our goals.
In 2018, Ice911 reached a larger donor base than ever before. Thanks to support from every one of you, we are only $5,000 dollars away from raising more this year than ever before! By making a gift to our Restore the Ice Campaign, you'll ensure we can accomplish our testing and climate modeling goals this winter, and also be a part of a historic fundraising year for Ice911!
Your donations power our work - which is a safe, cost-effective and practical solution to one of the largest levers on climate change - rebuilding ice in the Arctic. The more funding we have, the faster we can get the work done, and the sooner we can implement the solution at scale in the Arctic, slowing ice loss in the Fram Strait and rebuilding ice in the Beaufort Gyre.
Rebuilding the ice can save our homes from wildfires; save crops from drought; save lives, property, and wildlife today; and bring hope for our kids' todays and tomorrows.
If you want to learn a bit more about me, why I founded Ice911, and what keeps me going, check out the media section below. These stories reveal that this work started from love and worry for my own kids, and is powered by the grit of myself and our amazing Ice911 team - and by your generous support.
Wishing you many joys, and many reasons to be thankful. We are thankful for your support, which fuels our work, and warms our hearts.
