Appalachia Needs Your Help

Hello Blotanists – I’m calling on you because I believe you share my respect for our planet and are willing to spend a few moments of your time to help.  -I’m also quite aware of the power of Blotanical bloggers!

A friend of a friend of a friend… is involved in a noteworthy project to create more sustainable jobs for coal miners and reducing negative environmental impacts of Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia.  This group is taking real action to make a difference.

If you have a few moments and are willing to help, go to Brighterplanet.com and vote for Community Biopower Association: Institutional Empowerment in the Coalfields of Appalachia.  You can vote up to 3 times for the project and you can submit all three votes at once.  They are currently only 50 votes behind the first place project. Voting ends on Sunday, November 15th. If you have not voted before, you have to create a log in. The log in is easy and the site promises not to use your email for any purposes other than verification.


Thank you to everyone who voted for this project.
Voting is closed and the project came in a very close second.
