Join Global Exchange, our friends at 350.org, and hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens around the world who are making October 10th the biggest day of climate action ever! Take part in the Global Work Party, celebrate climate solutions, join an event already happening, get outside and get to work! When the day is done, join Global Exchange supporters and host a Party for the Planet & help us raise $10,000. (Find out how you can donate directly.)
Be a part of the movement! Organize a Party for the Planet film screening fundraiser followed by a discussion. Hosting a great film screening fundraiser isn’t hard! Just follow these easy steps:
Get the Video: Fill out an online form to receive Planet and People First– a short (13 minute) film from the first People’s Climate Conference in Cochabamba, Bolivia this spring. It is a must-see film for you and your community on the vital work of Global Exchange and communities around the world to end addiction to oil and ensure real action is taken globally towards climate equity. Receive a copy of the film. You must order by October 1st in order to guarantee arrival by October 10th.
Invite Your Friends: Invite your friends over. You can prepare light refreshments, or have a potluck and share the workload. Check out our party planning resource page for downloadable invitations and other helpful tips.
Start the Conversation: Once you and your guests have viewed the film, take a moment to have a discussion around the issues of global climate change and climate equity. See our list of questions and tips.
10 – 10 – 10 Donations: Our fundraising goal for 10-10-10 is to raise $10,000 dollars. Ask your guests to give $10, $10(0), $10(0)(0) or more. If you’re shy about asking for donations, don’t worry – our website offers great tips and resources to make you into a pro.
Please join us in making this important day into a success. Even if you can’t host a house party, consider donating to Global Exchange’s work directly.
We look forward in you joining us in this global movement!
