This non-profit is raising $1M to price carbon
All too often it is assumed that taking action on climate change could hurt the economy. But what if we could spur innovation and create a healthier community and economy at the same time? This Boston-based non-profit is aiming to do just that, and you can help them and get an awesome return.
Climate XChange, a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3), is run by a small team with big ambitions of putting a price on carbon emissions and securing a healthier future for communities and local economies. Working from an American Revolutionary–era church in downtown Boston, Climate XChange (CXC) is helping advocates from across the country follow its lead and spark campaigns to pass carbon pricing legislation at the state level. This year, their carbon pricing bill passed the Massachusetts State Senate unanimously, and they are already gearing up for next session when they hope to make the Bay State the first in the nation to put a direct price on carbon emissions. Their ambitions go beyond Massachusetts though, as CXC has already set their sights on bringing the carbon pricing campaign to other states.
Carbon pricing is a proven and effective policy tool to decentivize fossil fuel consumption, improve the health of our communities, and mitigate climate change. It is also necessary if we are to stay below 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming, as argued by the IPCC earlier this year. In order to make this a reality, they need your help – and you might win something super exciting in return.
The organization is raffling off not one, but three brand new Teslas this New Year’s Day. You read that right: one ticket gets you three chances at winning the car of your dreams and helps a fantastic cause – so really, you win either way! Get your tickets here!
Tickets are capped, and they are going fast, because not only does Climate XChange pay for the car prizes, they are also covering the taxes – which is pretty amazing, too.
Since the raffle is taking place on New Year’s Day, tickets also make for a great gift this holiday season. You can give your loved ones a climate-conscious gift and a chance at winning big! This is perfect for both car enthusiasts, and environmentalists – and is also a great way to show your employees some appreciation during the holidays.
This is the third time that CXC is hosting a raffle, but this year is the best one yet! Here are some more details about the raffle:
Incredible odds: 3 cars, and ticket sales limited to only 4,000 tickets
The drawing will be held on New Year’s Day 2019: not a bad way to start the year, right?!
Grand Prize winner can CHOOSE which Tesla for their winning: a Model X, Model S, or Model 3. Second and third prize winners will receive a Model 3 (see all legal and winnings details here).
Winners of the raffle who do not wish to acquire a Tesla can instead opt for a cash prize.
Giving is great, winning is better – you can do both by supporting the good work of this non-profit. There has been increasing attention on carbon pricing schemes at both the global and local level. Consider this a way to do your part in supporting action on climate change.
