Giving: Give Through Groupon!

In celebration of Earth Week, Groupon is supporting Earth-friendly organizations across the U.S.  Here in Mobile and Baldwin Counties, from April 16 -22 you can celebrate Earth Day by supporting Mobile Baykeeper through Groupon Philanthropy and train volunteers for our Baykeeper Patrol program.  Baykeeper Patrol volunteers will help spot trash and pollution in our local waterways in an effort to give the gift of clean water.

During a heavy rain, a flood of trash washes down our many urban waterways.  This pollution problem can be solved, but it takes all of us working together to find a solution. There are over 3,000 places where trash and other pollution enter our waterways from every day acts people make.  There is no way our local and state agencies can monitor all of that on their own.  One trained volunteer through Mobile Baykeeper’s “Baykeeper Patrol” program can help look for those sources of pollution and find solutions, ensuring we have clean water for swimming, fishing and drinking in our communities.

If you’re not already a member of Groupon, you can join today by clicking here.  Groupon gives great daily deals from local businesses, but this week they are also launching this unique Philanthropy program that allows YOU to give back to your local community.  Along with their regular deals, Groupon will offer an option to give to Mobile Baykeeper this week to support Baykeeper Patrol.  For just $10, you can be part of the team reducing trash and pollution entering our waterways.

So really, there are two ways you can give back to your local community this Earth Week.  Give financially through Groupon to support our Baykeeper Patrol program, or give by becoming a volunteer for Mobile Baykeeper.  Either way, you can celebrate Earth Day this year by making a difference for clean water right in your own backyard!
