Raise Some L - Support UofL's Sustainability Initiatives!
Tuesday, Oct. 19th 6:02pm - Wednesday, Oct. 20th 11:59pm
A lot has changed in 200 years—our commitment hasn't. Since 1798, the Cardinal family has dreamed big, worked hard and made a lasting impact on our community, commonwealth, and beyond.
Beginning at 6:02 p.m. on Oct. 19th, for 1,798 minutes, Cardinals everywhere will come together to celebrate who we are and Raise Some L. This is a Cardinal call to action to all students, alumni, faculty, staff, and fans to do two simple things:
- Make a gift to the Green Fund for UofL and support our sustainability initiatives! Donate here. Use your smart phone or computer to make a gift of ANY amount.
- Spread the word. Share your good deed with friends that day on social media using #RaiseSomeL.
Your donations can help us realize this vision by supporting initiatives such as:
- On-campus Sustainability Internships for UofL students to gain experience as change agents;
- Our Sustainability Living-Learning Community which provides an opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of the principles and practice of sustainability, while developing skills, leadership, and a community of support.
- Efforts to make UofL even more Bike-Friendly, such as our free BikeShare program;
- UofL’s Community Composting Project and the UofL Free Store which leverage volunteer power to turn “trash” into treasure;
- On-campus Renewable Energy projects, like our Solar Umbrella Charging Station, which demonstrate green power in action; and
- Organic, campus Food Gardens where students, faculty, and staff build community and vital life skills while experiencing the unique pleasures of turning tiny seeds into delicious, hyper-local produce.
We invite you to learn more about our on-going UofL sustainability initiatives and to explore the many ways you can get involved and help us create a better world right here, right now.
