On Saturday, January 27th, a brave group of Forklifters are plunging into a really cold river in order to help keep winter cold. 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.
If you want to support our efforts, you can donate to our team:
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
