Here in the Eastern Sierra, the leaves have turned and are carpeting the ground as they fall - leaves of many shades and shapes landing together. With Thanksgiving fast approaching, this seems a perfect metaphor. Folks from all corners of the world are coming together this week to share in the gifts of family, friendship, and good times.
||My Dad taught me and my sister the value of nature. Who inspired you to care about our lands and waters?
This Thanksgiving, I hope you'll share in the gift of
When I was a little girl, my Dad taught me that land can help your spirit soar. It can give peace, hope, and joy. Land brings people together - people like you and me. Yes, land is a gift.
Today I work to save land, and I credit my father for helping me find this path.
Next week is Giving Tuesday: the annual day for giving back to the causes and charities that make a difference in your life. This Giving Tuesday, we're Giving Thanks - and we hope you will, too. I'll be making a donation in memory of my Dad, who helped shape me into the conservationist I am today.
Who is it that inspires you to care? If there's a certain someone, I encourage you to share your appreciation for them on Giving Tuesday by giving in their honor or memory. It's a beautiful way to say Thank You.
And in the meantime, thank YOU! If I could, I'd donate in honor of each and every one of you. You make local conservation possible, and all of us at Eastern Sierra Land Trust are deeply grateful your support.
May your Thanksgiving be filled with thanks of all kinds...
