FairShare supporters, mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 1 for the The Big Share™ day of giving! This is an opportunity to show your love for FairShare’s work supporting local farmers, healthy eating, and improved access to fresh fruits and vegetables. On this first day of March, Community Shares of Wisconsin will host a 24-hour online day of giving to support local non-profits working towards social and environmental change. We would be honored and grateful to receive your support.
From the Big Share landing page, you will be able to locate FairShare CSA Coalition and easily provide a donation. Your gift will be used to support the mission, education and outreach activities of FairShare. It is a wonderful, and simple, way to give back to the southern Wisconsin community. Friends of FairShare, no gift is too small. It is our hope to raise $5,000 during this year’s Big Share, and every donation, regardless of size, will help in reaching our target. We sincerely hope to count you in on reaching this goal!
We are particularly excited about the lunch-time “Power Hour,” which will run from 12-1 p.m. March 1, where we hope to raise 50 pledges within the hour. (What better way to take a lunch break than to support healthier food systems and communities?)
Alternatively, if you don’t want to wait until March 1, you may make your pledge now and it will still count towards our total! Thank you for your continued support of FairShare. We are grateful for all that you do to assist and strengthen our organization. It means the world to all of our farmers, CSA members and limited-income Partner Shares members. Hope to see you online at the Big Share on Tuesday, March 1!
