We’re pretty pleased to announce a new initiative through our subscriptions. Just in time for seasonal gift giving, we’re inviting people to do a good deed for nature along the Niagara Escarpment.
Here’s the deal: if you take out a subscription, for yourself, friends, family or business associates, we will give $5 from each new subscription to Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy (EBC). This is a great charitable organization that works hard and effectively to protect land and natural areas along the Escarpment. So far, they’ve created nature reserves from Caledon to Manitoulin Island totalling 7,170 acres. The habitat of 57 rare and endangered plant and animal species are now permanently protected. We’re delighted that EBC has agreed to work with us.
You can subscribe through this page. And when you send your cheque, let us know that you want to support EBC. This month, give the gift of protecting nature along with a year of great features about life near the Escarpment.
Any comments on whether this initiative makes sense for us?
Added note: Sue commented that she wondered if this offer is only for new subscriptions, not renewals. I should have made this clear, that renewals SURE ARE eligible. I only meant that subscriptions or renewals from now on can benefit EBC. If you’ve already sent your money, you can’t give this benefit retroactively. That would be an accounting nightmare for Mike. We mean this offer to apply going forward. So if you’re considering renewing, go ahead & specify that you want to benefit EBC!
