They have a 4 star rating by Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities.

Evaluation methodology

Using publicly available tax returns (IRS Form 990) filed with the Internal Revenue Service, and information posted by charities on their web sites, the Charity Navigator rating system bases its evaluations in two broad areas — financial health and accountability/transparency. Based on how the charity rates in each of the two areas, it is assigned an overall rating, ranging from zero to four stars. To help donors avoid becoming victims of mailing-list appeals, each assessment of a charity’s performance is accompanied by a review of its commitment to keeping donors’ personal information confidential.

“Corporations currently enjoy free speech rights as though they were people. They are not. They are fictional entities created by governments and money in order to generate profits. Since profit is their only motive their behavior is often against the interests of real human beings. They are tools that exist at our pleasure; not the other way around. They should not enjoy unregulated speech.”

I was sent this link in my email to a video that was personalized with my name to send to President Obama as part of a petition.  It was through Sierra Club.  I enjoyed watching it and I signed the petition and sent the video.  Here is the link:


Enjoy!!  Also, I’m not sure if you can still make your own video but it is worth a try!!

Grazing Team

This is the link –>  Grazing Team.

This is a link to one Team that you can join on Sierra Club‘s Activist Network.  You don’t even have to be physically involved.  By joining any team(s) you choose you can simply learn about the issues afflicting us today.  There are also options to act.

The different teams cover any issue you could possibly think of being interested in.

This is a great place to start if you have that gut feeling that you should be doing more but don’t know where to begin.

Take Action!
