  • Special gifts to Earth Day by cash or checks payable to “Earth Day Austin”.  

Fourth, please invite your friends, especially those in the pediatric medical professions or who live in the communities most impacted by the Fayette coal plant.  

Fifth and finallyFOOD! There will be a cake to honor all of our terrific volunteers and to make our guests feel welcome.  Please feel free to bring finger foods and beverages to share.  

We look forward to seeing you and your friends!
