Take Initiative for Earth Day

April 20, 2010 • Daily Email Recap

Through his Foundation’s initiatives, President Clinton addresses global challenges, including climate change, childhood obesity, and sustainable development. Now, he wants you to Take Initiative on Earth Day.

The Clinton Foundation has launched a website, www.clintonfoundation.org/earthday, that has four actions you can take to learn more about climate issues and help make a difference. First, they have launched a climate quiz that lets you test your knowledge about the environment—and it has a twist. For every person who takes the quiz, $2 will be donated toward buying solar flashlights for people without access to electricity living in camps in Haiti. Their goal is for 100,000 people to take the quiz so that they can donate 20,000 flashlights to internally displaced people in Haiti. All you have to do to “Take Initiative” to help Haiti and the environment is take the 10-question quiz. Also, you can get informed about the Foundation’s climate initiatives and sign up to participate in a local event in Chicago, Little Rock, Houston or New York. And the capstone to their Earth Day campaign is a special Digg Dialogg on April 22 in which President Clinton will answer climate questions submitted through Digg. Get the details about the online event and the other activities on http://www.clintonfoundation.org/earthday.
