We’ve arrived at the time of the year where thankfulness and expressing gratitude for one another comes front and center. For us at The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, there is a lot to be thankful for.
To start, we are thankful for each of our 1,073 members who believe in the importance of preserving and protecting our natural land and environment. With their support, we have helped preserve 2,863 acres of open space and farmland in 2018 alone.
We’re also grateful to have such a committed organization. From our staff, board members, volunteers and supporters that helped us to preserve more than 439 properties that total over 27,000 acres. We have been stewards of open spaces for the past 37 years and we’re not done. From protecting scenic ridgelines and forestland that are habitat to endangered wildlife, to preserving important watershed lands that helps protect water quality for millions of residents, there is still a lot for us to do.
Tuesday, November 27 has been designated as #GivingTuesday. Individuals and communities will come together to celebrate the spirit of thankfulness and collective generosity on a global scale. For on that day, #GivingTuesday unites us by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday will harness the generosity of people from all walks of life to help bring change in their communities. This event acts as a platform for each of us to donate our time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It brings together the collective power of community to bolster and strengthen small acts of giving and philanthropy to support causes we each believe in.
We resoundingly believe in the preservation of land and water resources and conservation of open space that help inspire and empower individuals and communities to protect our natural land and environment. #GivingTuesday will be a powerful reminder that the spirit of generosity is a shared value that unites each of us.
On November 27, we ask that you keep The Land Conservancy of New Jersey in mind. By including us in your act of giving, your donation will allow us to continue our land preservation efforts and help preserve the landscapes you love.
