I'm not going to write much because I just got off a conference call with an amazing group of volunteers organized by the No Impact Project's amazing new associate director, Stephanie Bleyer. The volunteers are designing and will participate in the NIP's first No Impact Week.
It's a week-long experience that the NIP will offer people who are interested in discovering a way to live that is both more fulfilling and better for the habitat we depend upon for our health, happiness and security. The goal is to convince people of the benefits of environmentalism, not by scaring them to death but by letting them experience the benefits.
Anyway, the point here is that these amazing volunteers are designing the week. People are crawling out of the woodwork--well, the Internet--to help. Not only that, but many of you blog readers have made huge financial contributions to the No Impact Project (whose goals I described here).
We've raised close to $1,000 already and the goal is only $15,000 in the next six weeks. Some people kindly gave $10. Others gave $50 or $100. If you also would like to support the NIP, please click here.
I am so grateful to the No Impact blog readership for providing so much support for this work.
