Support Added Value!

Please read the message from Ian Marvy of the Red Hook Community Farm below, and if you can, please help support this great neighborhood organization!

Dear Friends and Colleagues

Last week, I wrote with an exciting opportunity to support Added Value. An
anonymous donor pledged a one-to-one match for every dollar we raised through
August 26th up to $10,000.

In the last five days, we were able to raise $10,000 for the full match! In
fact another donor has now offered us another one-to-one $5,000 match, but we
only have until the 28th to raise it! That's just three days away.

I hope you will take this opportunity to renew your contribution or make a
first time donation to Added Value and support
(http://www.added-value.org/donate.php) our work to create sustainable
economies that nurture our community here in Red Hook and throughout New York.

Can you help us to reach our goal of an additional $5,000 by making a donation
now? Your contribution will help to support all that we do at Added Value to
promote the triple bottom line - the economy, the environment and ourselves, in
unison. Your gift, at any level, will bring us one step closer to meeting our
goal and every dollar you give will be doubled. I hope you will take this
opportunity to support Added Value's youth empowerment and urban agriculture

Please join us in growing a more sustainable city by making a contribution
today. (http://www.added-value.org/donate.php)

Warmest regards,
Ian Marvy,
Co-Founder and Executive Director
