My Son's Seabrook Project

Come Spring, you can "CLEAN & GO GREEN".......................................................We are one of several groups of local high school students who are taking part in the Seabrook Project. The Seabrook Project is an opportunity given to high school students in Anderson, South Carolina, by the Anderson United Way, to raise money for local charities. We chose Upstate Forever, a green organization, because we believe that the next stage of the "Evolution" of our society, the next major decisions we have to make, will be environmental ones. And we believe that the people who will be making those decisions are the youth of the world today. And in a recent culture where "green" is quickly becoming a cliche, the teenage group seems to have been passed over entirely from involvement in these issues. And that seems to be paradoxical because it is our age group who will truly be inheriting the effects. Another danger of the "green"cliche is that it could easily become an over looked fad when true danger exists. (As you will find on our "The Facts" page) This is not something to be taken lightly, and it is something that should involve everyone.

UPSTATE FOREVER: Upstate Forever is a local organization affecting Anderson, Greenville, Laurens, Oconee, Cherokee and many other counties of the Upstate. They have Land Trust programs, they promote sustainable communities, clean air and water, and much more. As you can read on their website:
www.upstateforever.orgEVENTS: "Spring Clean and Go Green" is the major fundraising event we are planning for Upstate Forever. All you have to do is drop off your donated items anytime between now and March 20th and on March 21st, we'll have a giant community garage sale.

We appreciate your donations.
