Give it Away Now

So you’ve paid your dastardly taxes and you realize that you could’ve been a wee bit more generous this year with your cash, but you don’t know which group is the most deserving. Good thing the folks at EarthShare have picked and chosen the best national (and local!) environmental orgs to work with.

Through their workplace giving campaign, you can give as much as you want each year- and it can come directly from your paycheck each week, so you’ll barely feel the sacrifice. But at the end of the year you’ll feel good AND be able to write those gifts off.

Need a little reminder as to why? Earth Share’s latest PSA, “Promise” will be seen on on a variety of stations, and reminds us why we’re really supporting the organizations under the group’s giving program.
