A Note From the couple
Robin Briggs & Thomas Hansmann Just Married!
Parvati.org – One of the most important things we can do to support the earth’s climate change is to protect the Arctic Sea ice from melting at 14,000 tons per minute. What most people don’t know is that the polar ice is our planet’s air conditioning system. It balances weather patterns globally so that we have the food and resources we need to survive. Polar ice reflects half of the sun’s heat away from our planet. But today, there is 75% less Arctic sea ice in the summer than there was just 50 years ago. Exposed Arctic water now absorbs 90% of the sun’s heat. Please support the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary – MAPS.
Heifer International – This is an opportunity to help end poverty and hunger and provide hope! They teach people how to use environmentally-friendly farming methods, create and operate businesses, and support their communities with their knowledge. Last Christmas we donated a goat to a small village in Claire and Marc’s name.
Water.org – More than 2.5 billion people around the world do not have access to clean water! This charity provides long term solutions to empowering families with affordable loans and expert resources to make household water and sanitation solutions a reality. Last Christmas we also donated a well in Claire and Marc’s name.
Amnesty International – For so many people around the world their basic human rights are abused. Amnesty International works to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied. This is a great way to support a vision for change.
Humane Society International – We love animals just as much as you! HSI is working to protect all animals—including animals in laboratories, farm animals, companion animals, and wildlife. This is a great way to protect those precious little creatures from abuse and harm.
