Not Cool: A Climate Podcast
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday!
This year, Facebook will be matching up to $7 million in donations, so you can double your impact by contributing to our Facebook fundraiser. Last year, Facebook’s matching funds ran out in 15 seconds, so EA Giving is recommending that donors try to contribute within the first second after the match begins, on December 3rd at 8 am EST. They’ve provided more detailed instructions for those interested.
But why should you donate to us? Take a look below at what we’ve accomplished with the help of donors like you.
