Grants for Earth Day! A Grant to Go Green!
Earth Day 2011 is here! What can a grant do for Earth Day? What act or event can a “Go Green Grant” do? What can be done for earthday.org’s “One Billion Acts of Green?” What can be done for the EPA’s “Pick 5 for the Environment?” How can you assist your community? These are endless questions with numerous answers. Take action. What can you do? Government grants, foundation grants, corporate grants, and private donations are needed continuously by organizations striving to save the planet. A dollar is better than nothing to save your world. One act is better than none to save your planet. One voice is better than none to begin the dialogue to “go green.” Get it started in your way today. If you believe it; you can achieve it. Think green; you can go green. Put one foot in front of the other.
Educating our children begins when our children become aware of life; their surroundings. Saving our planet has to be integrated into their core values. We teach them from day one to become good citizens. Saving our planet through their actions is definitely a part of becoming a good citizen. Just imagine where our children’s thought processes would be if saving our planet was repeated, reinforced, and reviewed in a fun way continuously. There actions would be automatic. Behavior is learned. The children need to learn from day one. Schools are awesome in providing knowledge; but it will definitely take the family and community to assist in such a major endeavor. Go Green! Teach the world to be a greener place. Don’t just tell them; teach them. A picture is worth a thousand words. Paint the picture today! Not just today; but, everyday!
