Want to raise money for radical climate justice organizing without spending a dime? Now you can!
Rising Tide is excited to announce that we’re on CREDO Action June Donation Ballot. Being on the ballot makes us eligible for funding to use in our work fighting the root causes of climate change and supporting frontline communities throughout North America. How much we receive depends on you.
CREDO is a progressive activist network and a provider of mobile and long distance phone services, as well as the CREDO credit card. They donate a portion of their revenue to a wide range of nonprofit groups. Last year they donated more than $2 million.
Rising Tide could receive more than $40,000 from CREDO. Here’s the catch. CREDO asks its members to vote for which groups they think should receive funding. So your vote could secure money we need to support direct action and frontline communities challenging the climate crisis.
Anyone can become a CREDO member and vote, so this could be huge for Rising Tide.
Be sure to act before the deadline of June 30:
1. If you are a CREDO customer or CREDO action member go to www.credodonations.com and vote for Rising Tide on CREDO Action’s June Ballot
Rising Tide North America is going big in 2015. These funds couldn’t be more crucial. In the last two weeks alone, Rising Tide chapters have blockaded fracking sites in Texas and Shell’s Arctic drilling fleet in Seattle. For the fall, we’re undertaking our largest endeavor yet: organizing escalating actions to #FloodTheSystem across the continent.
Every vote we get, gives us a larger percentage of this month’s pot of money. So PLEASE share this with your friends, families, co-workers, folks you think might want to support us.
AND DON’T FORGET TO VOTE BEFORE THE JUNE 30 DEADLINE!
