Friends of Voices for Earth Justice gave $9,424 in November and December 2017, an increase of about 88 percent over the same period in 2016.
"It's really not about the dollars; it's about the people," said BT Irwin, Voices for Earth Justice executive director. "Our mission is all about helping people do things that will make a real difference to the Earth and its inhabitants. One thing that some people choose to do is give money. We're thankful for every one of those people!"
Funds will support 2018 learning and volunteer programs and the maintenance of Hope House & Gardens in Detroit.
"We've always run Voices for Earth Justice on a shoestring," said Irwin. "It's surprising how much this organization accomplishes with so little. You know when you give a dollar to Voices for Earth Justice, it goes a long way to making a really big difference to the work we do. Every one of our donors should feel great about that."
Plans are under way for the final fundraising campaign of the fiscal year (2017-2018) sometime in April or May.
