From the Society for Clinton Hill: Dear Clinton Hillers:
The DDDB 2007 Walkathon is one week away - Oct. 14, Sunday. Won't you support the effort to protect Clinton Hill from massive over-development? The development of Atlantic Yards doesn't have to be so huge and so environmentally disastrous! Right now, the only thing standing between reasonable development and massive over-development there are the eminent domain and environmental lawsuits. It is a David and Goliath thing – we 26 community groups against Ratner and his political cronies.
The time is short to get our walkers together and to find sponsors for everyone. Tish James, our hero who has lead the community on this lengthy fight, is our team leader this year. We need to show our support for her, help DDDB help us, and show that Fort Greene and Clinton Hill will again this year be one of the top producing teams.
Please consider being a walker and asking family and friends to sponsor you. If that isn't your thing, check out our team, sponsor Tish or someone else by making a donation on their behalf. Or, you can contribute to the team in general. You can also set up your own team, if you are so motivated. Remember, all contributions are tax-deductible!
This is really important and it is a fun and exciting day as well. The walk is short and easy with entertainment on both ends. So, please, go to the web site below and sign up. WE NEED YOU!
www.dddb.net/walkathon Our team is the Fort Greene – Clinton Hill Tish Team. Go to the site, see the list of teams on the right, scroll down to find our team, and join as a walker or be a sponsor of one of the walkers listed there. It is such a worthy cause …the scale and character of our neighborhood... our quality of life.
If you should have any problem making a credit card contribution, which is tax-deductible, you can:
1. Drop a check off to 138 Lafayette Ave. (corner of Carlton) and put in a note indicating you want it attributed to the Fort Greene – Clinton Hill Tish Team, or another team, and listing the walker you want to sponsor.
2. Mail a check to DDDB, 121 Fifth Ave., #150, Bklyn 11217 (include same note as above.)
3. Or, call Lucy at 718-938-3935 for help.
Make checks payable to DDDB-Legal Fund.
Walk with us…we need your help!
