The WSRA is excited to put on their first Washington Recycles Every Day event the last week of July.

Thank You for Being a Champion for CoolMom!

Your May 5 giveBIG donations will help CoolMom build a women's climate action movement in Washington.

To all CoolSupporters, thanks so much for being a champion for climate action!

Among the many asks you received last week during Seattle Foundation's giveBIG campaign, you chose to donate to CoolMom. We want to thank each of you for this gracious gift. Your support helped us to quadruple our total donations over last year's campaign.

Thanks to your generosity, CoolMom will bring our simple carbon-reduction strategies to new moms and families across Washington and unleash a women-led climate movement throughout the state. Global warming is threatening our health, our economy and our natural resources, now. We will demand that our state force big polluters to reduce carbon emissions immediately.
