Challenge to donate to climate exhibitor- IFHE World Congress

From Virginia (Ginny) Vincenti

Challenge to donate to climate exhibitor-IFHE World Congress

The Exhibit Committee of the International Federation of Home Economics (IFHE) 2020 World Congress, August 2-8 Atlanta, GA, is seeking donations to support the participation of Citizens’ Climate Lobby/Citizens’ Climate Education which works nationally and globally. Since the theme of Congress is “Sustainable Development”, we think we really need an exhibitor on climate issues and solutions.

This organization also wants to do an exhibit and 60-minute interactive workshop to help us better understand the complexities of this problem and solutions.   It has produced videos and other science-based materials and info you could use in your professional practice.

However, the cost of $1,000 is more than their budget allows. I feel strongly we need this perspective so I am challenging you to make a tax-deductible donation that I will match so that we can have access to this valuable information.  You will receive a receipt for your donation from IFHE-US.  Send your check written to IFHE-US with a memo for “climate exhibitor” to:

            Luann Boyer, IFHE-US Director of Finance

            22500 CR 21

            Fort Morgan, CO 80701 

Thanks,

Virginia (Ginny) Vincenti
