100 Green Hearts

100 Green Hearts is an invitation to you...

If you’ve never marched for anything before, if you don’t follow world events or politics closely, that’s okay - you’re invited.

CBC Plaza on Hamilton at Georgia

World Leaders are meeting in New York City in late September for an emergency Climate Summit. An emergency because it is becoming clearer by the day that scientist’s projections over the last 20 years, as menacing as they are, may not go far enough in terms of the changes the planet is experiencing and the timeline.

Organizations around the world are planning the biggest climate march in history to show those leaders that we, as citizens, support their efforts and demand a serious plan to combat climate change.

You don’t have to carry a sign, or chant, or yell - you’re invited.

I invite you to meet me on Sunday, September 21, 2014 under the green & white balloons to pick up one of the 100 green heart t-shirts I have made up to help you show your support of change. 

If you're worn out from the teacher's strike and ice bucket challenges and all the other causes, please find two more hours - you're invited.

You don’t have to know exactly what you want done, you don’t have to have all the answers.

You’re invited.

If you believe...

the earth is warming,
that it will hurt us and our children economically and in more human terms,
that we’re contributing to it,
and that we have a responsibility to try to stop it.

Please come.
