Subject: Eco-Volunteers Needed Urgently

On July 22nd, National Geographic awarded CarbonfreeDC a $20,000 grant (watch the video) to help green the homes of 20 deserving families in Washington, DC. Each home will receive over $1000 of energy-saving equipment installed for free, helping the families save a ton of cash on their energy bills!

We've selected the neighborhoods of Deanwood and Shaw to participate, and need volunteers (like you!) to outreach out to the communities to get families to participate in this exciting initiative.

Three Ways You Can Volunteer

1) Deanwood is in desperate need for on-the-ground volunteers to donate a few hours of their time THIS Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 8/21-8/23. Please sign up to volunteer ASAP at:

2) Know deserving families in Deanwood or Shaw? Give a copy of the brochure to them ASAP, and encourage them to submit an application. The deadline is NEXT Friday, August 28!

3) Sign up to help install equipment in the homes over a weekend in September. We already have 20 volunteers, but need 20 more! Sign up at

Can't Volunteer? Come to the Gala to show your support!

On Friday, October 9, CarbonfreeDC is hosting the Extreme Green Gala to raise additional funds for the homes. The festive event will feature high-level speakers, organic food, a bar, music, an environmental art show benefiting WVSA youth art program and more!
