I’m not one to stand by the way side and let things happen. I don’t have pockets lined with cash. I don’t even have a following that’s big enough to make a real difference. But that’s what I’ve always wanted to do. Make a difference. That’s how this whole thing started. The want to actually make a difference. Not just in fitness or in someone’s life. But make a true difference in the world.
Our President and Vice President do not believe in climate change. The head of the EPA has sued the EPA in the past and does not believe in climate change. The rest of the Senate, the republicans, don’t believe in climate change. I’m sitting here, in my living room, writing this. I live near Chicago and it’s in the 60s today.
Normally I’m down for that. However, it’s February. This time last year we had snow. Eight years ago we had a blizzard. This year is record high temperatures in the winter time.
We, as a people, need to take better care of our planet. This is the only place we have to live. We need clean air and water. Not just for our generations. But for future generations. Our children. And our children’s children.
The We the People shirt is up for sale on my etsy store front. Click here to check it out.
My We the People project is this:
· 50% of the first 500 shirts sold goes to an environmental non-profit that is ACTUALLY making a change. Cleaning the ocean, helping provide solar/wind/water power, finding ways to make the planet better. Reducing our carbon footprint.
· If I sell more than 500 shirts, 75% of the sales go to the non-profit. The higher the amount of shirts are sold, the higher percentage that goes directly to the non-profit.
The money earned from the sales of the shirts goes towards more shirts to have on stock for faster shipping and the overall cost of the shirts. I don’t get a dime. Once I am 100% sure on the foundation I want to support, I will make an announcement.
Right now, this is the only way I can help. With the exception of recycling, cleaning up local parks, and getting involved in the community.
In the last few weeks, I’ve done a lot of thinking on how I can make a change in the world. So big things are in the works. The We The People project is the first of many. Hope you stick around to see the rest.
