You can help make a difference! Help me help the Earth!
Global Warming is an undisputed fact in the scientific community. The Earth is getting hotter thanks to our abuse of the environment. If we don't come together to reverse our self destructive course, we face a future that is more then bleak, it is devastating. Inspired by Al Gore's message of hope in his Oscar winning film An Inconvenient Truth and the wisdom he imparted in his amazing Live Earth concerts, I have decided to sell the rights to my energy consumption and waste production for the next three months. With the first $10 bid I will endeavor to reduce my ecological footprint by 10%. For each $10 after that I will work to reduce my footprint by 2%, up to the maximum of a 50% reduction in the damage I inflict on our environment.
Why should you bid? Let me tell you about myself. I think of myself as an average person in terms of energy use and waste production, in other words, I'm terrible for the environment. I have looked over my lifestyle and realized there is so much I can do to make a positive change for this world, and I am ready to do everything I can. Unfortunately, it is not easy to do this. Changing my life will require much effort on many fronts; my home, my work, and changing the lives of those around me. Your money will help me finance the efforts I will make and help to reduce the ecological footprint I inflict on the environment.
What you get:
-Bi-weekly e-mail updates letting you know what I have done to improve my lifestyle, and environmentally friendly tips on how you can do the same.
-If the winning bid is over $100, you will receive an autographed copy of An Inconvenient Truth, your choice of book or DVD. If the winning bid is over $200, you will receive both!
-Should I publish a book or star in a movie about this adventure in helping the planet, you will receive a percentage of the proceeds that matches the percentage you paid me to reduce my ecological footprint.
-A clear conscience and the satisfaction of knowing you have helped make a difference in all of our futures!
