We are reaching out to all friends of the Save Our Springs Alliance to let you know about a new global day of giving and unity, Giving Tuesday Now, which has been scheduled for May 5th as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The SOS staff is working every day to protect Barton Springs and the Edwards Aquifer. With your help, we can continue to press our elected officials in Travis and Hays counties to scale back or remove many of the $4.2 billion in road projects proposed to be built over the Edwards Aquifer over the next 25 years. We are committed to keeping treated sewage out of Barton Creek, Onion Creek and the Blanco River. We are dedicated to educate newcomers and inspire our young people to care about our local watersheds and to build a larger community committed to a more sustainable future for Central Texas. But, due to the cancellation of our summer outreach education programs and our larger sponsored events, we will soon need some help to keep our doors open and our education and advocacy work ongoing through 2020.
We understand that many people are in a difficult financial position right now, but if you find yourself able to help, we would greatly appreciate it during this uncertain time. If you like our work but have never donated to SOS Alliance, or have not given recently, please consider a tax-deductible donation. Contributions are welcome on May 5th or sooner, simply click below:
