Alex and I are lucky to work for an amazing company that promotes social justice and volunteerism. Cisco has generously offered to match $25,000 PER EMPLOYEE to qualified charities this calendar year. Cisco also has given us TWO weeks of Volunteer Time Off to take action to make our community and world a better place.
We can’t let Cisco’s offer expire. We will ride our bicycles 265 miles from San Francisco to San Luis Obispo December 17-23 to raise money for the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) to support climate justice. Every dollar we raise will be go the NRDC Action Fund, and will be matched 1:1 by Cisco.
Look, we know this year has felt like one charity request after the next. Between pandemic unemployment, struggling businesses and election campaigns, all our wallets feel lighter. If you are in a place where you can donate $5 or even $10, we would so appreciate it. If you can give more, we’d like to up the ante a little bit!
If you can give:
$25 - we will write a letter to your Senator requesting climate action on your behalf
$50 - we will write you a personalized postcard from the road
$265 ($1 per mile) - we will send you a custom designed bike jersey!
Time is running out for us to take Cisco up on their $50,000 matching offer this year. Time is also running out for communities impacted by pollution, fires, and sea rise. We hope you can help us support the NRDC before it’s too late.
