My name is Christian Ledwell.
I'm originally from the east coast and, since moving to Ottawa last year, I've had a chance to work and volunteer with some of the great environmental groups that are based here.
Since getting to know Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) better, I've been so impressed by their dedicated staff and the incredible results their campaigns deliver.
I find SCCF's analysis and commentary on environmental issues to be consistently insightful, and, as a SCCF supporter, you already know the impressive range of campaigns they take on, including protecting endangered whales' habitat, getting the use of bee-killing neonicotinoids reduced, and challenging tar sands development so that Canada can meet our international climate commitments.
Like many young Canadians, finding stable work wasn't an easy process. But as my professional situation is more certain these days, I was happy to be able to make my first donation to support the SCCF.
Today, if you're in a position to do so, I'd encourage you to consider making a gift too.
$15, $25 or even $50 would go a long way to help to make sure that the Sierra Club Canada Foundation can continue the vital work they do to protect Canada's environment.
I hope you are enjoying the holidays with your friends and family, and thanks for supporting Sierra Club Canada Foundation.
P.S.: Now is a great time to make your first gift, and you will receive a tax-creditable receipt for this year.
