Support MEA in a big way on March 7th
Feb 20, 2017
On March 7th, the Big Share will be a huge day for Midwest Environmental Advocates’ fans and others who care about defending our clean water, air, land and government to donate in support of our law center’s important mission.
We're going to raise some much needed funds, introduce the office dogs of MEA live on social media and celebrate a huge day of giving with fellow Community Shares of Wisconsin member organizations.
Midwest Environmental Advocates has a big goal for The Big Share: we will raise $20,000 in one day.
But it’s because we see how state and federal laws that protect our clean water and air are under attack and we have to double down on our work to protect the health of people and our environment.
You can help us meet our goal right now:
- Donate today. Visit thebigshare.org/organizations/MEA to donate.
- Be a fundraising champion for MEA. Click on the “Fundraise” button on our Big Share page to set a goal and get your friends to give.
- Donate on March 7th between 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. and we might win a prize! There are cash prizes all day for nonprofits that get the most donors or donations, but we want to win the 5 o’clock power hour sponsored by Sprinkman Real Estate. Set a reminder because all donations large and small during that hour might get us an extra boost.
NEW! Every donation enters you to win a pound of Just Coffee
- Donate online. You can donate between now and midnight on March 7th to help us meet our goal.
- Kick off the day at 6:00 a.m. with coffee and Community Shares of Wisconsin member organizations at the Madison Community Foundation Power Hour at Cargo Coffee East. There will be free coffee drinks courtesy of Yelp Madison while supplies last. MEA will be live on Facebook to talk about the day.
- Join us live on Facebook at the top of each hour starting at 9:00 a.m. Tune in and you can meet our staff, hear us give a shout out to those who donated AND we’ll introduce the office dogs of MEA!
- At 5:00 p.m., we’ll head to the Sprinkman Real Estate Power Hour Happy Hour at Sardine.
- After 6:00 p.m., celebrate the day with the Ambassadors of Change party at Plan B. Thanks to generous sponsors, it’s a great way to celebrate the big day of giving.
Midwest Environmental Advocates is just one of over 60 Community Shares of Wisconsin nonprofits that are dedicated to building an equitable, just community and protecting our environment. Community Shares of Wisconsin is going to raise over a quarter of a million dollars in this huge day of giving, so it’s a great time to give generously to all of your favorite nonprofits.
