30 Jun Vote Deanna Kavanaugh-Jones for Eco-Champion – The Joy Trip Project
This is hardly a political endorsement. The good works of people on behalf of the environment rise well above the discourse of rhetorical posturing in the self-serving quest for social power that is politics. But as we are a democratic society it often falls to majority rule to determine even the distribution of scarce philanthropic resources in the support of worthy causes. So vote Deanna Kavanaugh-Jones for Eco-Champion. : http://tr.im/qkfb
Deanna has done a great deal to galvanize the social power of the outdoor industry to take direct action in protecting wild and scenic places across the country. As a co-founder of the online social networking platform Conservation Next she’s helped to raise awareness for not just one environmental cause, but dozens. Working through the Conservation Alliance Deanna and a dynamic team of outdoor professional women have made it possible for Conservation Next members, known as Nexters, to get personally involved in the preservation of endangered areas near their homes as well as the remote regions they love to visit. Using the power of social networking Nexters can receive alerts for political action campaigns, get involved in clean-up projects and share resources and information concerning the natural areas they cherish.
The Eco-Champion grant of $15,000 donated by outdoor equipment, footwear and apparel company The North Face will allow Deanna to continue her work and further the cause of wilderness protection. But in order to receive this award she needs your help. Click this link: http://tr.im/qkfb to cast your vote. Share this post with your network of friends and ask them to lend their support as well.
