All of our work doesn’t just happen in the warehouse! Every January, we join the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) for their Polar Bear Plunge down at National Harbor. It is CCAN’s biggest fundraising event, powering victories to move our region off of fossil fuels and to clean energy. This is our fifth year proving our commitment to fighting climate change by running into the icy Potomac River at National Harbor with activists from across the region. It’s cold, it’s wet, and it’s a GREAT TIME!
DONATE! CCAN asks plungers to each set a goal to raise $350 or more. Why 350? 350ppm is the level of carbon scientists say we must return to in order to keep winter cold. The Forklift Freezers have set themselves a lofty team goal of raising over $1,000 this year (and if we make it, the Forklift receives part of the proceeds!).
If you’d like to help us reach this goal and support our icy recklessness, please donate to one of the Forklift Freezers on our team’s Polar Bear Plunge page: http://KeepWinterCold.org/Team/ForkliftFreezers
JOIN THE TEAM! We’re always looking for more fools…err, Salvage Superheroes… to plunge along with us! If you’d like to be a Forklift Freezer, all you have to do is sign up and join our team online. Then start fundraising! If you join the team, please email Events(at)CommunityForklift.org so that we can include you in our plans and make sure you get all of the insider details.
CHEER US ON! We love having friends & family on shore cheering for us – plus, it’s nice to have folks ready with a dry towel and a warm cup of coffee! If you’d like to join our Cheer Squad, please email us at Events(at)CommunityForklift.org so we know you’re coming.
