ACT Joins Global #GivingTuesday Movement – Pledges to Continue Protecting Clean Water, Rivers and Streams
FRANCONIA – Your locally based lands conservancy, the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) is joining #GivingTuesday 2017. Tuesday November 28th kicks off the global holiday giving season. This organized day of on-line giving aims to inspire people to improve their local communities by giving back to the charities and causes they support.
Those interested in joining ACT’s #GivingTuesday initiative can visit http://bit.ly/2i6SRNs or go to Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/aconservationtrust. No need to wait until November 28th – the donation link is live and ready for you to make a difference in your community today.
As a special incentive for the holiday season, ACT is raffling off something that will get you giddy – an Instant Pot®! It’s not instant pot, although that would help with merry making this season. Anyone giving at a $35 level or above will be entered to win an Instant Pot®, the wildly popular time-saving, eco-friendly combination slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker etc. (see http://www.instantpot.com). Share your best recipes with ease, fill it with your favorite local ingredients and you’re off to the races. Not much for the kitchen? It makes a great gift for the holidays too!
ACT has been working to build community, especially around the outdoors, encouraging people to get out from behind their screens and strengthen the bond they have to nature. Encouraging people to take time to enjoy and appreciate our region’s beauty as well as each other is one of ACT’s primary goals, along with permanently protecting farmlands and forests for people and wildlife. ACT also has a special emphasis on protecting our waterways in an effort to build climate resilience in our region.
ACT has been conserving land in the North Country since 2000, helping families protect the land the love forever. For ACT, land conservation is about protecting our landscapes and ensuring that future generations have a love of place, healthy local food options, and clean water.
“We can all agree that clean water and habitat for everyone, both people and wildlife, is a crucial need,” said Rebecca Brown, ACT’s Executive Director, “Keeping the North Country economically viable and climate resilient is the best way we can make sure this special place is here for generations to come.”
