Volunteer for Mama Earth — April 22nd–

14 Mar

Fern Gully was a must-watch any day when I was home from school sick. Batty’s rap was so cool for an eight year old. Do I still remember some of it? Of course!!!!

Yo – The name is Batty
The logic is erratic
Potato in a jacket
Toys in the attic
I rock and I ramble
– My brain is scrambled
Rap like an animal
But I’m a mammal
… something something!!

So do as the fairies did and stop that mean Tim Curry, I mean, industrial revolution.


Global To Local
is a benefit that will take place on the evening of April 22 at Benaroya Hall. Featuring Mayor Greg Nickels, world renown nature photographer Art Wolfe, and others, Global to Local will be an evening to celebrate the environment.

Proceeds from the event go to Project Earth Care , a high school student environmental organization, and will be used to fund various environmental projects in the Seattle / King County area. A portion of every $25 ticket sold will go to purchase 2,500 native trees which will then be planted in Seattle greenbelts and parks by students from Seattle Public Schools.

The benefit is linked to An Inconvenient Ride, a group of Sealth High School students and teachers who will spend the month before Earth Day biking across the country, visiting sister cities that have committed to Mayor Nickels Climate Action Now program. The riding of bicycles symbolizes not only alternative transportation, but a sense of commitment to the environment as well.  

Your reward :
Immense gratitude of involved students and teachers, trees planted throughout Seattle greenbelts and parks, a healthier environment, and more good karma than you’ll know what to do with.

If interested or if you have any questions, please contact Lou at chicagoexpat@yahoo.com or 206/403-7050. We’re involved in the planning and set-up now and will be going full throttle through Earth Day.
