Global Green and MobileCause Partner to Recruit Climate Champions for Change One Click at a Time
Los Angeles, CA (August 26th, 2015) – Already at the forefront of providing smart climate change solutions for cities and communities across the country, the Global Green USA staff realized it was time to get on the innovative side of fundraising as well, migrating to a greener fundraising strategy via a paperless fundraising campaign with its new strategic partner MobileCause, the leading provider of cloud-based fundraising solutions for nonprofit organizations.
With one click of a button, MobileCause enables supporters to donate quickly and securely, become fundraisers themselves, and share their appreciation of Global Green’s activities to social media, text and email contacts, all from the convenience of their smartphone, tablet or personal computer.
The campaign, called Climate Champions for change, focuses on recruiting supporters not only to just donate themselves, but also to lead their own creative fundraising campaigns. This model has proven effective since like-minded people will unite around a relatable cause and generate substantial results. The message is simple. Devastation from climate change related natural disasters is threatening us all. New York City, Miami, San Francisco, New Orleans, Boston, and all of California, Texas and Florida are most at-risk. By becoming a Global Green Climate Champion for change and helping raise funds for critical projects, education initiatives and resources, you make your city safer and more climate resilient. Climate Champions are encouraged to text CLIMATE to 71777, sign up to become a fundraiser, and tell five friends.
The Climate Champions for change mobile initiative is launching in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, where Global Green continues to this day to make tremendous contributions in reconstructing and educating on the importance of climate change; currently scaling up resources to operate a climate disaster response team based out of its New Orleans Climate Action Center. The Global Green Disaster Response Team will assess ways to help at-risk cities prepare for and respond to the next hurricanes, floods, droughts or other natural disasters. The Climate Action and Community Center epitomizes the Ground Zero of climate change impact in the US and will function as a multi-purpose resource, educating visitors via exhibits, labs, classrooms, and a resource library on the importance of the environment and how communities can thrive in response to global climate change.
The Climate Champions for change campaign will operate in phases with the first running for 90 days beginning August 21, 2015. Each additional phase will have a unique tactical plan to be announced in the upcoming year to further our compelling agenda of educating, motivating change and recruiting even more Climate Change Champions.
