I really want to take part in the 350 action this Saturday, but the stuff going on downtown is during the girls' nap time. So I decided to start a new action: 350 Toys for a Healthy Planet.
In case you're wondering...350?
Folks from all around the world will be raising awareness of “350″ and global warming. What’s 350 about? From the 350 website (ww.350.org), “350 is the most important number in the world—it’s what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.”
Instead of heading out into Seattle, I’m hoping to compile 350 photos of toys owned by children in our area. 350 toys represents 350 kids napping, playing, studying, etc., whose future we need to protect. I’ll make them into a big photo collage and send a copy to each of our senators, along with a letter asking them to help fight climate change. Can you help? Send me a photo by Oct. 24 of a favorite or precious toy for each of your kids (grandkids, neighbors...), along with their first names.
My e-mail address for this event is email@example.com.
Thanks for your help!
