2017 Letter – Year in Review

December 4, 2017

Dear Friend,

Thanks to your continued support, Time’s Up Environmental Organization has continued to make positive, sustainable change despite this negative and divisive climate. Our everyday actions, events and campaigns have inspired people into a sustainable grassroots revolution. We can make change from the grassroots level, and we’re doing it every day with our dozens of sustainable campaigns. In 2017, we organized 62 confidence-building group bike rides, 96 hands-on workshops, 42 classes and 25 community garden green ups. We’ve even managed to plant over 50 trees this year.

We hope, with your support to continue our sustainable revolution in 2018 and want to invite you to be part of our Future Positive New Year’s Eve party. Time’s Up is also celebrating its 30th anniversary with one of our partners, the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, which is celebrating its 5th anniversary.

The new presidential administration has rolled back many positive strides made on a federal level to protect the environment. We cannot let the interests of multinational corporations and the greedy one percent destroy planet Earth. Time’s Up is no stranger to administrations that are hostile to the environment. And we’ve had incredible success using grassroots efforts to make sustainable change, even when the administration wasn’t friendly. In fact, some of our grassroots efforts have really caught on and changed the sustainable infrastructure of entire cities. And sustainable urban design can now be looked at as a positive solution to the climate crisis.

A year-end donation to Time’s Up! will help us continue our much-needed educational and outreach efforts. We can make New York City a model of sustainability for other cities and towns across the nation to follow. So please give generously so that Time’s Up! can continue its unique grassroots events. The planet needs us!  All gifts to Time’s Up! are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Thanks again for your support. Happy Holidays!
