Hey everyone,
?I haven't gotten much response yet for volunteering in Shaw this weekend -- would you please send me a quick email saying if you can or can't come this weekend? Thanks!

Hey Extreme Green volunteers,

A quick update: everything is coming together nicely. Businesses are donating products and professionals' time, DDOE has officially announced their partnership with CarbonfreeDC, the media is all over us (NewsChannel 8, NPR, etc), the buzz is spreading about the Extreme Green Gala, and we have a great core of volunteers itching to pitch in for the energy efficiency improvements in the 20 homes. Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping us accomplish so much so quickly!
That said, we still have our work cut out for us. While our outreach in Deanwood brought in over 30 applicants (yay!) from families interested in participating, we need to redouble our efforts to get more families on board in Shaw. To give us more time for outreach, we've extended the application deadline for Shaw until September 10.
Can CarbonfreeDC count on you to outreach with us in Shaw this weekend? ?
Sign up here:?­?
This weekend is critical -- without enough qualifying applications, we won't be able to retrofit the 10 homes in Shaw... Please come out for a few hours and join us!
Also, did you remember to purchase your Extreme Green Galaticket yet??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 (George S. Hawkins, Director of the DC Dept. of Environment has already confirmed), organic food, a bar, music, an environmental art show benefiting WVSA youth art program and more!
Learn more and purchase your tickets here:?http://www.carbon...­
Lastly, want to volunteer do to the actual work in the homes? If you haven't already, sign ?up here:?­. There will be a Sept 14 orientation to get you ready. More information will be shared soon.
?Questions or concerns? Email Rhys Gerholdt at [address removed].

Have you and your friends registered for the Extreme Green Gala yet? Hurry before the tickets run out! Learn more and register at http://www.carbon...­
