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.

That’s huge.

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

We have seven bags to give away, thanks to Just Coffee’s sponsorship of our Big Share kickoff event at Karben4. Already donated? You’re entered to win! (No donation is necessary to win - contact us with an email to enter)

The schedule:

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.
