Building a Movement

Between the Waters (BTW) is now one year old. Wow, what a learning experience building an organization from scratch. But there is one thing I have learned in all this, one person can’t do it alone. So I have many people to thank:

BJ McManama – Campaign Organizer and tech with the Indigenous Environmental Network. Her humor, her love of the Earth, and her blessings for this work are so appreciated. BTW could not have started without her as part of our shared love of the Earth and our firm belief that the Earth must be protected from #dirtyfossilfuel.

Another valued partner is Climate Reality Project. We have two of their employees working with us on programming, Josephine Gingerich and Jason Hallmark. They are insightful and tech savy. Honestly, another Cimate Reality member is Kelly Yagatich. She has been with us since the beinning.

Ohio Sierra Club has been fantastic in their work with us. Mary Aguilera (volunteer with Ohio Sierra Club and Ohio Poor Peoples Campaign) and Elissa Yoder Mann (employee) have been the absolute best in contacts, social media and, of course, Elissa’s dog Moose! We had a whole line of tweets with Moose. The fight against plastics is real and we are all in this together.

And now for the wonderful news. Between the Waters received a $5000 grant to continue to illuminate and educate on the fight against plastics and the fossil fuel industry through Tackling the A-Z Impacts of Plastics and Fossil Fuels. Our programming begins on October 11, 2022.

Plastics: Earth’s Super Polluters

If you don’t know by now, I am an environmental activist. I don’t always hawk it or reveal it on LinkedIn because LinkedIn is for business. And, I am always about business. And, I posted this on LinkedIn.

And, here’s the issue. Businesses must consider an organizational change on how they are doing business. #plastics use is not #sustainable.

Please consider signing up and listening to this insightful presentation on how #plastics are the new super polluter #pollution.

Join us in one week!!!!!!!!

New Volunteer Opportunities

Donating money isn’t the only way to give to charitable organizations, many of whom rely on volunteers for various services. If you find yourself with free time on your hands on your weekend, or during the week, you could consider putting in some community service. Not only will you help a good cause, but it can also be a way to meet people and learn new skills.

Celebrate Microvolunteering Day

You want to get involved and give back to the community, but can’t fit another big commitment into your busy schedule? Then microvolunteering might just be the thing.

Microvolunteering is a small, bite-sized task or project, that is quick and easy to perform. Best of all there’s a range of things you could do online, in as little as 30 minutes. Donating processing time on your computer, signing an online petition, or promoting a charity on social media are all examples of microvolunteering that you could do today.
