Fox Valley Sierra Group
A Plea from Kelly Ramstack (03/10/14)
Hi Sierra Club friends,
Many of you know about the industrial sand mine that Christian and I have been trying to stop (for almost 2 years now!) from coming into our little slice of heaven out in the country. We banded together with local citizens and formed the group Preserve Waupaca County. We went before the County Planning & Zoning Committee to stop this sand mine but they approved it by just one vote. Preserve Waupaca County is appealing that decision. The big court date is coming up in May but we need to raise money to pay for our lawyer.
We have put together a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo.com to help us with this fight because we just canít do it by ourselves. I am sending the info about the campaign to you, if nothing else, to show you what we have been working on. If you would like to contribute, fantastic, if not that's ok too.
You can check it out at the link below or go to Indiegogo.com and type "A Million Loads of Sand" in the search box. Please take a look at the story about what we are facing, check out the video and, if you are able, please contribute. We hope you enjoy seeing the people and sights featured in the campaign. You may recognize a few faces. :)
Thanks so much!
P.S. Please help us to spread the word. Send this message on to your friends and family. Post to your facebook page, twitter, or blog. Write in a comment on our indiegogo page after your contribute. Every little bit counts! The more people who know about our cause, the better our chances of meeting this challenge.
