MAKE YOUR BIRTHDAY (& THE HOLIDAYS) HAPPY AND GREEN WITH CAUSES APP ON FACEBOOK
Is your birthday or are the holidays coming up? This year instead of gifts, which have a 50% chance of ending up in the landfill, ask your friends to donate to the Council through a Facebook Causes Birthday or Holiday Wish. If just 10 of your friends donate $10 each, you can raise $100, which would help us to plant trees, restore streams and do other important work in honor of your birthday! Click here to get started. Be sure to choose Tennessee Environmental Council to raise money for us!
