NMSU AAUP slates In Defense of Public Education Oct. 7

September 30, 2010

I am a part of the global 350 movement to create a carbon neutral world. We have started a local chapter of the movement called 350 Green Las Cruces and we’re planning for this year’s world-wide event on 10/10/10, weight loss the global work party.
You may have heard of the 350 movement before but I will tell you briefly about it just in case. 350 is the sustainable amount in parts per million of carbon dioxide that we can handle in the atmosphere. Right now we are well above that number and climbing. The 350 organization teamed up with people from countries all over the world last year and headed the largest day of political action in history. This year on October 10, online 2010 (10/10/10) the 350 movement is holding a global work-party. People all over the world will be getting together on that day and doing work for the planet.
Here in Las Cruces, our goal is to help the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope homeless shelter. By 10/10/10 we will install solar panels on a section 8 project house for the chronically homeless, owned and operated by the shelter’s non-profit Abode Inc. This will be an enormous asset for the Community of Hope; the solar panels will help the center become economically and environmentally sustainable. We will also be conducting a full energy audit on the house, followed by energy efficiency improvements. The easiest way to help is by making a donation. We are willing to take all kinds of donations, from a small ten dollar donation, ranging to a larger portion of the total cost of initial installation (around $3000). Please visit http://350lascruces.webs.com to learn more about us and donate to our cause.
If you would like to help in another way, that would be very much appreciated. I would like to set up a meeting with your management to talk about what part your organization can play in our mutual cause to help our planet and the people living on it. We will show our appreciation by letting others know about the generous donation and help you provide.
The idea that a homeless shelter could become self-sustaining through solar power and support of the community is a truly beautiful mission and I hope that you feel moved to contribute.
