As you may know, I'm pretty passionate about protecting the world for our children and grandchildren. So much so that I write DownToEarthMother.com, a blog about green-living tips for busy mums.
I have been offered the opportunity to become a Climate Reality Leader, training with none other than Al Gore in Melbourne in June. It would be my dream come true to attend.
As a Climate Reality Leader, I would be expected to reach out to the community and communicate the facts about climate change. These are called Acts of Leadership and I am obliged to do 10 in the 12 months following my training.
Some of the ways I intend to spread the message about climate change include:
* Via my blog, including a free ebook to my subscribers
* Writing for magazines and newspapers
* Giving talks and presentations to schools and community groups
* Giving interviews on radio and television
I am aiming to raise $2000 to get me to Melbourne in June for the training. Did I mention it's with Al Gore? For a greenie like me, that's the equivalent of meeting Madonna.
Donations from individuals are hugely appreciated – and if I can provide you with a talk or article, do let me know! By helping me become a Climate Reality Leader, know that you are contributing to the ripple effect that will cause our government to take notice of the crisis at hand.
I have also put together some sample sponsorship packages for businesses that care about the planet. Down To Earth Mother is an active blog with a highly engaged readership of around 5000 UVs per month. If your product or service genuinely helps mums make greener choices then I would love to let my reader know about it! For more information, email words at jo hegerty dot com.
Whoever you are, thank you for making it to the end of this lengthy story. I believe this training will take my efforts to address the climate crisis to the next level. And all thanks to you.
