Charity Begins At Home

A "Vote" To Raise Money For Long Island's Environment

Yes, today is Special Taxing District (Fire, Water) Election Day (check with you local fire and water district for particulars as to time and place), so get out there and vote!

Today also presents the opportunity to vote, via Facebook, in Chase Bank's $5 million giveaway to local charities, where your vote could help our good friends at Citizens Campaign for the Environment (CCE) (among other Long Island charities and causes)  fill the coffers for their continuing efforts to preserve and improve the quality of our water, our air, and our lives here on Long Island.

You can also invite friends to cast their votes, post to the walls of fellow Facebook afficianados, and, of course, Tweet your support to the entire free world.

Read on for the details, and be sure to vote!

Reducing pesticides in the environment
Restoring our ocean, estuaries, and Great Lakes
