We get it. This year has been rough.
In times like these, it’s easy to feel helpless. What can we do as individuals that will make a difference when faced with the complex issues gripping our society?
As it turns out, there is one answer that is surprisingly simple and close to home: you can support local parks.
When you give to improve parks, you start a ripple of positivity.
Your simple act of care for your community radiates outward to positively impact the lives of others.
Studies show that after visiting a park, people experience levels of happiness equivalent to those felt during the holiday season!
In a year filled with bad news, finding moments of joy is no small matter.
Begin YOUR ripple of positivity today with Park Pride!
Follow the three steps below to make a difference in your community and ensure everyone has a clean, green, and safe park nearby.
Together, our individual ripples have the potential to become a wave of goodness and joy!
1.) Get involved with your local Friends of the Park group.
This is the best way to help your neighborhood park!
2.) Leave it better than you found it.
When you visit a park, be sure to pick up your trash (and maybe some other’s!).
3.) Donate to Park Pride.
With your help, we can ensure that everyone has a park nearby, and that all parks are great parks!
Start a Fundraiser for Park Pride
If parks and Park Pride have made a positive impact on your life, consider starting a fundraiser to support the organization and the local greenspaces you love. Facebook’s social fundraising tools make it easy to start your ripple of positivity and invite others to join in too. On this Giving Tuesday, December 1, follow the simple steps below to set up your own fundraiser, share your story, and support parks!
