Subject: This is a health crisis and a threat to the global economy
Dear Marc,When we talk about the climate crisis, it’s easy to get lost in data points and science jargon and forget the human side of the story. But real people’s lives are impacted every day.
People who live in watersheds where 500-year floods are now happening every few years, wiping out homes and entire neighborhoods. Young people who struggle to breathe as asthma attacks increase in frequency because of worsening air quality. Elderly people whose lives are at risk from endless record-breaking heat waves.
I know you care about what’s happening, so I wanted to share some important news.
Beginning today, you have a new opportunity to make a bigger difference in our work to solve the climate crisis. Thanks to a generous donor, all gifts made in December will be matched, $1-for-$1, up to $150,000 – meaning your gift will go twice as far to support real solutions to this crisis.
I hope you’ll fight alongside me today, Marc: Make your matched year-end gift now, and double your impact.
When you donate, you’ll be supporting our more than 21,000 trained Climate Reality Leaders, who have been working hard to spread the truth about how the climate crisis affects everyone, especially society’s most vulnerable.
