If you're healthy, employed, and traveled less than you wanted this summer, please make a donation to a nonprofit organization(s) that matters to you and share the donation link on social media with the hashtag #MyNonprofits - encouraging others to do the same. I hope you take part - thank you.
Writing a brief post this morning since I'm not riding or hiking this morning because the air quality is terrible. Valley Verde is a nonprofit that was introduced to me by another one of My Nonprofits, Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. One of the best memories of the pandemic was a socially distanced ride to deliver seedlings for free to families that needed them.
Valley Verde is engaging in a big fundraising effort right now and I'd love it if you donated.
I'm writing this indoors (where I hope most of you are) and just saw a segment on the Today Show that will not age well: people 'fleeing' cities, which has been debunked in several articles including this great one by Curbed. Cities are more important than ever (Hello! Climate Change!) and we have to think about how we want them to look when this is over. Thanks for reading and thanks for riding.
