24 Hours to Give Where You Live

We are very excited to announce another opportunity to support EarthLinks on the second annual Colorado Gives Day! On December 6, 2011, Coloradans across the state will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like EarthLinks. Last year, the goal to raise $1 million for Colorado charities was exceeded -- $8.7 million was distributed instead! We're looking to double our donations over last year's Colorado Gives Day, with a goal to raise $6,000 for EarthLinks!

What is Colorado Gives Day?

Presented once again by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to your favorite charities through the website GivingFirst.org, an online giving resource featuring all of the nonprofits participating in Colorado Gives Day.

  • 100% of your donation will come directly to EarthLinks when you give through GivingFirst.org.
  • When you give online anytime on December 6, the value of your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund.
  • Help us win cash prizes! We have a chance to win $1,000 Bonus Bucks and $5,000 High Five cash prizes when you remember us on Colorado Gives Day.

Make your tax-deductible donation online at GivingFirst.org/EarthLinks any time over the 24-hour period of December 6 to help EarthLinks Sustain People + the Planet!


SMASH 11-2-11 004
Many thanks to everyone who came to EarthLinks for our SMASH! Pumpkin Composting Workshop last week -- it was a smashing success! We had a wonderful time sharing reflections on composting and gardening, learning the steps to creating a healthy compost pile, and smashing pumpkins! We were especially thrilled to learn about composting from one of our EarthLinks Workshop participants, our resident compost expert. Special thanks to John Hayden and Keith Pryor for bringing a boatload of jack o' lanterns for smashing!


A Special Request...

On the topic of giving during this season of colder weather and more time spent indoors, we would love to continue our Nature Trips Program through the winter, and we can do it with your help! While we will save our future trips to the mountains and state parks for next spring and summer, we hope to take trips this season to Denver's world-class museums so we can continue learning about the beauty of the world around us.

If you are a museum member and have extra guest passes to the
Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Nature and Science, or the Butterfly Pavillion, please consider donating tickets to EarthLinks to help us continue this life-giving program.


As the weather turns colder and we get our first glimpses of the winter ahead of us, we are reminded of our need for community and support to help us make it through. Whether you support us by making a tax-deductible donation on Colorado Gives Day, purchase EarthLinks Workshop products at one of our many upcoming sales, or make a donation of museum tickets, know that you are helping Sustain People + the Planet.
