Foster the Spirit of Giving

Tree-Graphics-Donation-Blog

The holiday season is a time of celebration, a time to give thanks for the many blessings, cherished memories, and significant people in our lives. Homes fill with the familiar scent of gingersnap cookies rising in the oven, mornings are spent snuggled in warm blankets with mugs of hot coffee, and days are filled with anticipation as the holidays move ever closer. But for kids in foster care, the holidays can be a difficult time, many of whom face the season without parents, relatives, or siblings. Their holiday season is not often filled with the warmth and joyous anticipation familiar to many of us, but instead is often etched with uncertainty as to whether there will be even a single present with their name on the tag. That is why this holiday season, Greenvelope.com is dedicating 5% of all purchases made through December 20th to help give foster kids a brighter holiday.

Mountains to Sound: Preserving Seattle’s Forests

greenway

As some of you may know, Greenvelope donates a percentage of every sale to Mountains to Sound, a nonprofit organization near Seattle. The organization maintains the 1.5 million acres of forest surrounding I-90, also known as the Greenway. Their mission is to “lead and inspire action to conserve and enhance the landscape from Seattle across the Cascade Mountains to Central Washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature.”  The Greenway, inspired by the idea of weaving together the urban and the wild, has been designated as the country’s National Scenic Byway.

Currently the organization is working to designate the Greenway as a National Heritage Area. Official recognition of the Greenway will demonstrate the national significance of this landscape, empower partners to work together more efficiently, enhance funding opportunities and formalize the Greenway coalition’s cooperative management style across this broad landscape. Over 1,000 people have signed their petition to make this happen.  Voice your support
