Happy December to one and all. The busy time of the year is upon us but that does not mean that I am too busy to post my monthly Comments for a Cause post. Never!
This past month I highlighted the Native American Heritage Association as part of Native American Heritage month. It is always a good thing when I can educate myself on some of the important things that are going on and this month I was happy to be able to learn a bit about this organization and what it does. You can read my post detailing a little bit more about his organization by clicking here. Chris and I are happy to announce that due to the comments here on the blog we will be donating $100 to the Native American Heritage Association. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I may not always get a response written but I read each and every comment.
In December I was looking for a new cause that I have not highlighted from our area and remembered that I had not shared Conserving Carolina with my readers. It seems the perfect time.
Taken from their website it is easy to see why this is a great organization to support:
Our Mission and Vision
Vision: A community inspired, land and water saved, for nature and people, forever.
Mission: To protect, restore, and inspire appreciation of the natural world.
Where We Work
We serve part of Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. In North Carolina, our region includes Polk, Henderson, and Transylvania Counties, and parts of Rutherford and other surrounding counties. In South Carolina, we serve the Landrum area, including parts of Greenville and Spartanburg Counties.
What We Do
Your support is powering some amazing conservation projects. With your help, Conserving Carolina is creating new parks, trails, and greenways. We’re protecting mountains, foothills, rivers, and farms—over 47,000 acres so far. We’re restoring woods, meadows, and wetlands. We’re engaging people in volunteer work, hikes, outings, field trips, speaker series, native plant gardening, and more.
It’s easy to see why I am drawn to this group. While we have amazing trails and places to enjoy outdoors within my own community of Connestee Falls it is always a good thing to be able to go outside our neighborhood to enjoy the beauty of the area. These dedicated volunteers make sure that the areas that they cover are kept in great shape with restoration and protection. Our world is a much better place because of their efforts.
This month please join me in supporting Conserving Carolina with your comments. For each comment shared during the month on any blog post Chris and I will donate 50 cents to this organization to help promote their efforts in conservation. It’s a great world out there and we want to keep it great. Please feel free to follow along on their social media channels that I will share below.
