Dear WELL supporters,
By becoming a WELL member or donor, you support our work to make this community healthier, more self-sufficient and sustainable. We greatly appreciate your support! We run on a tight budget, so every member and every dollar counts! Please join or renew (only $15-25 per person) for the 2016 calendar year now, using the Paypal button or sending your check to us at P.O. Box 42, Willits CA 95490. It's a small investment with big results!
WELL is now in our 12th year, and we continue to host inspiring speakers; hold forums on building our local economy, food, transportation, water, energy, health and emergency preparedness; do practical trainings; and sponsor garden tours, bike shows and other fun and educational community events. We've also given out many seed grants and served as co-sponsor for many localization-related projects and activities. Over the years, other groups have taken on leadership on some issues; we continue to serve as a clearinghouse for these diverse efforts in our greater community.
We are also focusing on building our local economy, currently promoting an opportunity for local investing through Economic Development & Financing Corp (EDFC) and exploring other ideas with community groups.
While we can take pride in our accomplishments so far, there are still major challenges ahead. Climate change, resource depletion, and economic disruption loom at the global level. We continue to believe that localizing our economy is our best strategy for survival ? and it?s something we can do and should do anyway, for the health and well-being of our community. We obviously still have plenty more to do!
Your membership helps sustain these kinds of programs. As a member you also receive our bi-monthly newsletters and updates that promote local activities and keep you informed about projects and issues in our community. Again, please join or renew your WELL membership for 2016.
Yours for a thriving future for our community,
WELL Coordinating Committee: Kristin Fraser, Paul Jacobson, Tim Rice, Laura Toomey Rowland and Madge Strong
