Do you remember AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary about climate change? Well, in addition to making the film, he also trains a select few people to be "Climate Leaders" and share customized messages about climate reality with their local communities.

Al Gore is training the next generation of climate leaders, and I will be one of them!

Which is amazing, except that I'm a community volunteer with limited financial resources. If you've got a little to give, please help fund my trip to become a Climate Leader, alongside the former VP and all the fresh-faced global shapers of tomorrow. Your donation will pay off!

Although the training is free, I have to pay my own travel, hotel (pricey in downtown Chicago!) and dinners.

By accepting, I commit to giving at least 10 community presentations, and I cannot charge a fee. This is a volunteer activity I'm willingly taking on, but I could really use your help to fund my out-of-pocket costs. Your donations will empower me to bring climate awareness and action to the community!

I'm offering special "perks" for some generous sponsorship levels, but even a few dollars is appreciated, so please consider helping this worthy cause.

NOTE: Any money raised beyond my actual training trip costs will be held to cover expenses incurred in giving my presentations over the following year, or used to "upgrade" presentations, or help fund other trainees.

Any questions? Email [email protected] 

Thank you, thank you, thank you to my current funders and to you, for joining them!
