Dear Friends, Family, Co-Workers,
On November 10th, I will be participating in the GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles Solarthon, an annual solar block party and fundraiser. This year it will be held in South Los Angeles where we’ll be installing solar electric systems on the homes of several local low-income families. The systems installed during Solarthon 2012 will save these families thousands of dollars on their electricity bills. The money raised during Solarthon will not only help these families, it will also support green job training and promote clean, affordable energy across the Greater Los Angeles region.
I’d like to invite you to sponsor me for this year’s Solarthon with a tax-deductible donation. I’ll be working alongside other volunteers, job trainees and the homeowners themselves to re-energize an entire neighborhood with solar power in one day!
This non-profit’s work resonates with me on so many levels. With offices across California, GRID Alternatives provides savings for homeowners at a time when people are struggling to hold onto their homes; offers job seekers hands-on experience in solar installation (one of the state’s few high-growth industries); and helps communities see clean energy from the sun as a practical solution to their energy needs.
Please join me in supporting a sustainable future—economic and environmental—for our region and our state: To donate by credit card please visit my fund raising page at www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/edmundocastro or make check payable to Grid Alternatives and mail to 1810 E 7th Street, Unit #2, Long Beach, CA 90813.
