#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. On November 28th, hundreds of millions of people will be inspired to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity acting as a powerful force for good!
This #GivingTuesday, a generous anonymous donor has pledged to match all donations to LELT up to a total of $5,000! Your support helps protect vital lands and natural resources on a scale that matters. Together we can ensure the Lake Region of Maine has healthy forests, clean water, and access to the outdoors for everyone. Thank you for your partnership.
Our biggest needs that your gift will help make possible:
- Ensuring all LELT parking areas are plowed this winter.
- Supporting our stewardship budget, which is increasing by 35% next year.
