Help others while helping yourself -- with solar! Support Rosana in Solarthon 2013

Maybe your state doesn't have a solar gardens law -- yet. Maybe you rent, have a shaded roof, or can't get solar for a number of other reasons.
So how can you participate in the solar revolution?
One way is to sponsor me to install solar panels for low-income families with GRID Alternatives. At their annual Bay Area Solarthon, aka "solar barn-raising," I'll be joining hundreds of other volunteers to bring solar to those who need it the most.
Why is this important to me? And why should you care? 

Because through the simple act of installing solar electric systems for low-income families, GRID Alternatives accomplishes so much more:
  • An average GRID solar installation saves a family $28,000 over its lifetime and prevents 95 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • GRID has installed solar for over 3,000 low-income families, saving those families $92 million and preventing nearly 290,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • GRID has given 11,700 volunteers and job trainees the clean energy skills they need for the new economy.
By sponsoring me, you:
  • Help me reach my fundraising goal.
  • Help low-income families save money and get the benefits of clean energy.
  • Help the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Help improve public health, national security, and global politics.
  • And help yourself! Because most of these things affect you, too.
It's a win-win-win-win-win!
So, want to help yourself while helping others? 
Just click here to sponsor me — any amount helps:
Thanks so much for your support, and thanks again to all of you who have sponsored me for previous Solarthons.
