With Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22, a coalition of environmental non-profit organizations, including Planet Green and Earth Day Network, have banded together to make this coming weekend a time of meaningful change. Planet Green has created a website where people can sign-up to volunteer on projects that range from cleaning up your local park to installing green roofs. The website services America's ten largest cities and the coalition estimates the number of volunteers to be in the hundreds of thousands.
The Huffington Post intends to highlight the weekend's activities and tell the stories of individual volunteers, but we can't do it without you. Sign-up here to join our good news team and we'll email you with directions on how to send us stories in the future. And if you detest writing, don't let that deter you, we're looking for photographs as well.
You can send your photos and stories from Earth Day Volunteer Weekend to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to identify yourself and where you're from. Try to send you submission before Monday at noon since we intend to feature these stories on Earth Day, April 22.
Photographs and vignettes of benevolent deeds from your community can serve as a much-needed counterpoint to the doom and gloom surrounding the economy; let's help change the conversation -- we can't do it without you.
