Green Friends - Kick Butts 2019! -- Sunday, March 3rd
The PNW Litter Project is sponsoring our 8th annual cigarette butt pick up work party in support of Kick Butt Day, a campaign for tobacco free kids.
The event will go from 10am to noon.
We will meet at Hing Hay Park (Map) in the International District of Seattle, and spread out from there.
Everyone from everywhere is welcome to attend.
If you would like to participate in the Seattle event, or create your own similar event in your area sometime during March, contact Karuna at email@example.com.
Your effort will help keep these toxic butts out of landfills, waterways and the stomachs of fish, birds, and animals.
(If you put fathead minnows and top smelt into a liter of water, along with a single cigarette butt, half of the fish will die.)
The butts we collect will be sent to TerraCycle to be recycled into plastic pallets.
Auction -- Saturday, March 23rd
Joyfully we can announce that we are having this year's auction where Amma held her program last year, the Hilton Bellevue (Map).
Please join us for this wonderful opportunity to celebrate with friends and help with Amma's initiatives.
To donate items to be auctioned, please contact Visala at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for more information!
Program Guide Fundraiser -- NOW!
We are looking for an enthusiastic lead from each satsang in the Pacific Northwest!
This crucial role will coordinate their satsang ads and help find local volunteers to fundraise for Amma's tour.
We really hope that's YOU! Please contact us today and join this fun team!
It is love that makes everything new and gives it freshness and novelty.
We will only be able to experience as much newness and freshness in our life as there is love within us.
