Celebrate Giving Tuesday by Donating to the Goldman Prize Winners

November 27, 2012

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s easy to get bogged down with buying and consuming during the holidays. Take a break today and help us celebrate Giving Tuesday.

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday open the holiday shopping season, Giving Tuesday marks the official start of the ‘giving season.’ After all, aren’t the holidays really about giving back and being thankful for what we have?

Here at the Goldman Prize, we are so thankful for the outstanding heroism and bravery of our Prize winners. Year after year, these courageous individuals overcome amazing obstacles, often while risking their lives, to protect the environment. Their hard work and dedication is an inspiration to us all.

We invite you to give back to the 2012 Goldman Prize winners by making a donation to them through our partners at Global Greengrants Fund. Every donation helps the Prize recipients continue their important work. Click here for more information on donating.

Thank you for your contribution and happy holidays!
