Between now and Christmas day, a generous donor will match all donations up to $1,000. Since we put out my special Christmas appeal on Monday, 20 members of the Creation Justice community responded to this need, getting us to $870 out of the $1,000 Christmas mini-campaign goal. Our team live updated this blog as we make progress to hitting the goal, with our most recent update on Christmas eve at 3:00pm ET. Update: By 1am on Christmas morning, we exceeded our goal! We reached $1,425. THANK YOU!
Thanks for being active in the Creation Justice community, and Merry Christmas! ~Annika Harley, Policy & Outreach Associate, Creation Justice Ministries
I'm blessed to be celebrating Christmas this year with my family in Wisconsin. I have enjoyed sharing with my home community, including my Mennonite church, about my ministry in Washington, DC with Creation Justice Ministries. This work allows me to share my sense of urgency with you.
As I look ahead to 2020, I can't help but think about the United Nations climate change report that warns a catastrophic climate change tipping point is only 10 years away. It can be stopped if we take action now!
I am a member of the generation most adversely affected by the climate crisis. We are the loudest and most strongly committed to making big changes to protect God's Earth. Through Creation Justice Ministries, I have a platform to organize fellow young people convicted by their faith to defend God's Earth. I have the privilege of standing with children, youth, and fellow young adults from many walks of life.
I encourage you to contribute to Creation Justice Ministries today to help uplift the voices of young people as we plead for a future. Next year, our Earth Day Sunday theme will be The Fierce Urgency of Now. I will be leading our Faithful Climate Action youth program, recruiting participants in the Justice for Each Generation sermon campaign, and getting college students involved in environmental leadership training.
To make all these things happen, we have to meet our fundraising goals. We still have over $7,000 to raise before year-end. By taking advantage of the full $1,000 match by Christmas, we can get to our goal faster.
