YES WE CAN Volunteer Challenge February – April 2009
Brooklyn Green Team & GreenEdge Collaborative NYC Present We all have a gift. Some can sing and dance; others can garden like a gnome, rake leaves faster than Paul Bunyan can chop down trees, or even recycle with their eyes closed! There are vast and varied opportunities to let loose your talents for the planet. Commit to volunteering at least three hours in the next three months. We know you can do it. Oh, and we’ll email you lots of volunteer opportunities.
3 HOURS. THREE MONTHS.
• Plant a tree (or a million with milliontreesnyc.org)
• Mulch or garden at your nearest park
• Staff events of green organizations
• Clean up a beach
• Pick up garbage on your street or someone else’s
• Conduct a bird count
• Teach people how to recycle
“…Given the crisis we're in and the hardships so many people are going through, we can't allow any idle hands. Everybody's going to have to be involved. Everybody's going to have to pitch in."
-President Barack Obama
