Ti Leaf Express is a blog published by the Law Office of Tom Pierce. Our goal is to provide pithy -- and like our namesake, diverse, useful (and sometimes inspirational) -- content in the areas of land conservation, nonprofits, and philanthropy, with a specific focus on Hawaii.
Earth Day will be Friday, April 22, 2011.
So, how can we use that day to inspire us over the year to come? We’re going to use earthday.org’s great interactive idea as a launch pad (see below). You can participate by going to our Facebook page.
Earthday.org is putting on an event called a “billion acts of green” (or go to billionactsofgreen.org). The idea is to have a billion people pledge their personal act for the earth.
So, we’re encouraging you to make a pledge at the billionactsofgreen.org site, but also suggesting you say something on the facebook.com/tileafexpress page, so you can announce your pledge closer to home, here in Hawaii (pass the idea along to friends too!)
Here’s one more way to participate: post a picture (make sure its yours or you have rights), quote, link, or story that inspires you to help out mother earth, or if you want to think more locally, something that will help out mother Hawaii!
Here’s a cool picture created by Ferdi Rizkiyanto, which says a lot!
