Want to remember someone for a special occasion, but don’t want to buy into the Age of Consumerism? Want to give a gift that means something?

Here is your chance. For holidays, birthdays, special occasions, or just because, the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Sierra Club is offering you the chance to make a donation in the name of someone you care about. You can direct your support to one of four impor-tant Sierra Club initiatives that will help protect the environment here in Pennsylvania. At the same time, you will let someone close to you know that you are thinking about them on their special day.

In return for your generous contribution, we will send an elegantly designed certificate to the person of your choice.

Why donate to the Sierra Club Pennsylvania Chapter as a gift?

It’s relevant. Although we don’t always think about it, nothing is more important than the air we breathe, the water we drink, and safety of the place we call home. Long after your other gifts have been thrown into the dust bin, you can take pride in the fact that your gift of a cleaner environment will keep on giving.

It matters. You know that sweater that’s been hanging in your closet from three years ago? Wouldn’t everyone feel better if that money had been spent working to give your family, friends and neighbors clean air to breathe and healthy forests to play in?

It’s the perfect gift for the person who has everything, and needs nothing. We all have that person in our lives who is impossible to buy for. Why not give that special someone a unique gift that will let them know they’re loved, and save everyone the hassle of returned gifts?

It makes sense. There are no lines, no trips to the mall, no jostling with shoppers. Just a few sim-ple steps, and your shopping is complete. Besides, recent studies show that our ad-diction to consumerism is one of the leading contributors to an unsustainable future.

Give a gift that’s worth giving.
