Guess what??? Yesterday alone, on Giving Tuesday, we raised a groundbreaking -$5,000-! We are halfway to our goal, so THANK YOU to our incredible community for believing in our mission! Because we haven't yet met our goal, the board is extending their match of $10,000 to December 31st! We are confident we can reach this milestone with some extra help from our friends. Thank you for getting us this far in just one day! Your impact is already feasible.

What does GivingTuesday mean to us? It means that we can expand our advocacy, our education, and our impact from Tennessee to the Caribbean. Your gifts are being matched by our board up to $10,000, so just $5 can make all the difference!
As a thank you, we have gifts for our precious donors:
>Any donation receives an East TN or Caribbean Zoom background, a native seed packet, and a WaterWays sticker. >A $50 donation receives a WaterWays aluminum water bottle + the above. >A $100 donation receives a $10 coupon to The Gear Closet + the above.
Water is the one thing that connects all of life, and it is our duty to protect it! If you want to have a hand in doing so, please consider donating to WaterWays in the month of December. ... See MoreSee Less
Timeline PhotosWhat they aren't telling you about #GivingTuesday...
Yes, we know your newsfeed is full of posts soliciting donations for Giving Tuesday. But please remember the little guys that may not have the means to generate big donations. Small non-profits can benefit in a HUGE way from $100, whereas that's a drop in the bucket for other NGOs. To help nature, environmental education, and wildlife in the best way possible, think local. Think small.
Here are some examples of non-profits you can donate to today: 🍃 Nature centers 🍁 Wildlife societies 🌄 Land trusts or preserves 🐦 Audubon or ornithological societies ♻️ Environmental groups that focus on advocacy, policy changes, local laws and regulations, water and air conservation...the list goes on.
