Weekly Update!

Hey REThinkers,

Thanks to anyone who came to the meeting this week and helped out at any volunteer opportunities this weekend!

Next week’s meeting will be at 7pm! This is the time every weekly meeting will be unless otherwise specified.

Here are some fun upcoming events!

Cool Choices:

Madison is participating in a sustainability competition with 50 other cities across the U.S. Help Madison win $5 million towards green energy. Cool choices is an online card game to help reduce your personal carbon footprint by doing daily things. Sign up here with the password Madison2015. When you make an account put your email in this sign up sheet so that we can put you in a team with 4 other REthinkers! The game will only continue for 5 more weeks so sign up ASAP to start playing!

Farm Mob: October 25th!

Spend your Sunday enjoying the fall weather and relieving midterm stress by petting the farm animals… all while helping a local farmer. This is definitely a rewarding opportunity on each end. The time usually runs around 11-4, but adjustments can be made if people need to be back earlier so don’t let that keep you from coming! Exact time and location is TBA. Sign up here.

Mugs on the Mall: November 4th!

Free coffee. Wait, free coffee? Yes, free coffee! Wednesday morning all the campus walkers in search of their morning caffeine can get free coffee AND practice being environmentally sustainable without even realizing it. All they have to do is bring in one of the many coffee mugs/cups/thermoses that they probably already have and refill it with some delicious, hot coffee! Simple, free, and environmentally sustainable…enough said. We were thinking of a busier location, but also in a location that isn’t already surrounded by coffee shops. For that reason the location is TBD. We’re thinking we will catch most of the morning risers around 8:30 so the time is planned to be to setup around 8AM.

Fundraiser: Dough-Nation Night @ Ian’s Pizza, November 11th.

Have you ever thought that the world would be a better place if pizza made the world go ’round instead of money?  Well here is your chance to get the best of both worlds!  Ian’s Pizza on Frances Street has agreed to let REthink host a Dough-Nation night on Wednesday, November 11th. Basically, Ian’s gives us a portion of their profit depending on the amount of people we can bring into their restaurant that night with a REthink flyer.  31+ flyers and we get 15% “slice” of those yummy pizza profits!  The only rule is that we can’t hand out flyers directly in front of the restaurant.  So start telling you friends and family stay tuned for sign-ups for handing out flyers because fundraising is the only way we can keep REthink fee free.

FH King’s Harvest Fest: October 16th @ 5pm @ community gardens in Eagle Heights in FH Kind plots.

FH King is having an end of growing season festival. Go support or fellow green organization and enjoy the end of summer party. Food provided.

Stay tuned for more fun opportunities! See you at this week’s meeting Wednesday at 7pm!
