You did it!! G.A.L.A. wins 2nd place in Tom’s of Maine grant campaign!!

You did it!  G.A.L.A. is very pleased to announce that, because of our dedicated voters, we have won a $20,000 grant from the Tom’s of Maine ’50 States for Good’ grant campaign!!

THANK YOU VOTERS!!
We had a 1 in 50 chance and you rose to the occasion! For an organization that values outdoor time over screen time, we realize that asking you to get online EVERYDAY was indeed a lot to ask – BUT YOU DID IT!  This grant could not have been made possible without your dedicated support, daily voting, and passing encouragement along to your friends, families, and networks to vote!! We are so very grateful to have such an amazing group of supporters and participants across the WORLD!! People helped out by sending in their votes from places as far away as Australia, Ireland, and the far corners of the United States. And of course, we could have NEVER accomplished this without the dedication of our local constituents, right here in New Hampshire and New England. THANK YOU!

And now the work and fun begins! This grant will go toward G.A.L.A.’s Sustain-a-Raisers program to help it grow into a youth-led model for sustainable home & yard makeovers and green skills education everywhere!

Once again, THANK YOU from the bottom of our green G.A.L.A. hearts!  With this increase in funding we will be able to offer more makeovers next season (so sign up today!), as well as offer a paid seasonal internship to up to two interested youth.  Contact us (603-539-6460) if you are interested in getting involved and help Sustain-A-Raisers go viral.  And pat yourself on the back for a successful online campaign!  Pheww!
