Green Schools: Saving Energy. Saving Money. Helping to Save Lives.
Pace Academy and the Green Schools Alliance invite ALL SCHOOLS to join together to conserve energy, reduce carbon emissions and help the children of the world.
". . . if your kids want to help, one idea that seemed quite beautiful and has been done during other crisis where children were so deeply affected, is to have your child motivate his or her class at school to write a letter to their peers in Haiti. They can send them love and support and maybe a beautiful drawing and, when the time comes, we will get the letters to these children in Haiti, who need everything.Because of the devastation and conditions in Haiti, the temptation to send gifts, such as canned goods, clothing, toys etc. is not recommended right now as the focus must be on getting emergency supplies (medicine, water, vaccines etc.) into the area first.
We would love the support and help of the GSA and Green Cup Challenge schools. Yes, please pass on the information above. I will be personally responsible for getting the letters where they need to go. You can send the letters and drawings directly to the Green Schools Alliance who will give them to me. For donations, easiest is to visit: . Thank you for anything and everything." –Tea
"There is a growing sense of ethics. We see a clear cutting in an old growth forest we say "that's wrong." We see fish that are deformed from PCBs and we know that it's wrong. We are waking up to the environmental ethics of living in paradise."
