Friends of Barton Springs Pool and “Give 5% to Mother Earth” 2014
Friends of Barton Springs Pool would like to announce collaboration with Hill Country Conservancy, Texas Land Conservancy, Texas Campaign for the Environment Fund, Tree Folks, Urban Roots, and Clean Water Fund in this year’s “Give 5% to Mother Earth” campaign.
“Give 5% to Mother Earth” is a campaign designed to encourage local businesses to commit to donate five percent of gross sales on Earth Day (on April 22nd this year) to the non-profits mentioned above that dedicate their time and energy into making Central Texas a better place. In return, the participating non-profit partners encourage the local community to celebrate Earth Day by supporting these businesses throughout Earth Day weekend.
Each year since inception, the campaign has doubled in profits! In all, the campaign has raised over $300,000 for our local environmental non-profit community!
