As consumers and citizens, we make choices every day.
We choose where to eat, where to drink, where to shop, where to be entertained, where to take leisure, who to vote for, whether or not to recycle, whether or not to ride our bikes or drive a car. Moment to moment, these may seem like small choices. But over time the effects of these choices add up and have big impacts on our world.
At Give 5 to Mother Earth, our mission is to support nonprofit organizations who are working to preserve and protect the health and longevity of our community – both its natural environment and its inhabitants.
Each year around Earth Day, we gather together around this purpose, working alongside socially conscious business owners in Austin to raise funds for our nonprofit beneficiaries in an effort to keep Austin clean, green, and healthy.
On Give 5 Day, Friday, April 21st, we ask Austinites to rally and “Eat, Shop & Play” by patronizing the businesses who are standing beside our nonprofit partners, generously choosing to pay it forward by dedicating a portion of their profits from Give 5 Day toward making our city a better place.
We recognize that each and every Austinite has a choice about where to eat, where to drink, where to shop, and we hope that all of our fellow citizens will make those choices wisely on Give 5 Day and on every day.
We ask both businesses and citizens to join us on Friday, April 21, 2017 in our mission to keep Austin clean, green, and healthy by becoming part of the Give 5 initiative.
