#GivingTuesday: A Day to Give!

This is your brain on drugs. Where’s the beef? Think different.

Fancy marketing campaigns. Hashtags. Catchy slogans. Those are all fine, but if we’re going to solve our most pressing problems, it takes a network of people, working together, everyday.

That’s why we need your donation today more than ever. Help us raise $2,120!

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give. We have given thanks for our family and friends this Thanksgiving. We are thankful to be a part of a statewide network, built on stewardship and protecting our water, rivers, and wildlife.

But giving thanks alone won’t protect the Mahomet aquifer from a natural gas leak. It won’t protect Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes from Asian carp. It won’t stop energy companies, like Dynegy, from dumping coal ash across the state. It won’t restore habitat and wetlands. It won’t help farmers protect soil, water, and wildlife. And it won’t protect our communities.

We’re asking for your donation, today, on #GivingTuesday, because Illinois can’t wait. The money you give today will directly impact the water, rivers, and wildlife of Illinois.

These past four weeks, we have told you about our rivers, our wildlife, our network, and you. Your gift today will mean we can continue to fight for the issues you care about.

Help us raise $2,120 today!

Please give generously!

P.S. Double Your Donation — Your donation is even more important today because every donation to PRN we receive will be matched dollar-for-dollar by PRN member Carol Goodall Wock. She makes this challenge gift, up to $15,000, to help us grow our network in honor of our 50th Anniversary this year.
