Climate groups call for no Eraring extension
5 Sep 2023
Many of us have enough “stuff” to last several lifetimes and yet with Christmas around the corner people are often faced with the dilemma of wanting to give a gift, but not adding to the mountain of unwanted gifts that are given each year. And whilst many of us have everything we need - the one thing that most parents and grandparents care about is a safe future for their kids and grandkids. To have a safe future for our kids and grandkids, we need robust and effective climate action.
To give the gift of climate action this Christmas the #4TheLoveOfOurKids Appeal might just be the answer to your Christmas gift giving dilemmas!
Andrea, who lives on Karuna Country, certainly thinks so. Andrea is a Mum of two and an active volunteer leader in our Adelaide group and South Australian community. Andrea has also joined our team of Climate Champions in the #4TheLoveOfOurKids Appeal.
Andrea shares -
I am fundraising because I know that the power of collective community action is the most effective way for our country to move forward towards a safer and healthier future - together.
We all know what needs to be done to address the biggest issue facing the world, and Australian Parents for Climate Action gives a voice and support to families who have so much to gain from our country embracing more sustainable ways of living, and so much to lose if we do not make the urgent changes needed.
Our leaders need to see the groundswell of community support for climate action, and Australian Parents for Climate Action are a proven vehicle to empower a community to stand up and make progress happen.
If you're considering donating money this Christmas, please consider a donation of whatever amount you can to Australian Parents for Climate Action who are doing incredible work to progress bold climate action in this country."
You can give the gift of climate action this Christmas by donating to the #4TheLoveOfOurKids Appeal here. The Appeal runs until 31st December, 2022. *From 12/12/2022 - 19/12/2022 donations will be matched by one of our generous partners (up to a value of $3,300) - you can double your impact today!
Every dollar we receive supports the next parent, grandparent, or family member to become a climate advocate for the first time.
Together we can support parents to engage their entire communities on climate solutions.
Together we can support parents to reach thousands more with their climate story in the media.
Together we can support parents to persuade their political representatives, on all sides of politics, to secure a safe climate for all children.
Australian Parents for Climate Action meet and work on the lands of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and respect that sovereignty of those lands was never ceded. We pay respect to Elders, past and present and emerging, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
