Mysti Krewe of Nimbus Lagniappe to Restore and Protect the Environment! !
“Lagniappe” means a little something extra. Thanks to the Goode Werks Krewe, we’re able to raise funds for two environmental non-profits – one in Oregon and one in Louisiana that have similar goals in their respective states.
In 2018 we’re sponsoring 2 new organizations: Crag Law Center which offers legal aid for environmental orgainzations in the Pacific Northwest, and Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN) which provides tools and services to individuals and communities facing environmental problems in Louisiana.
Here’s how to contribute:
- You can donate right now by clicking on this PayPal button:
- Add in an additional amount when you buy your ticket to the Mardi Gras Ball on February 10
- Donate cash at the Ball and get a little lagniappe in return!
- Visit the Krewe at the Louisiana Pavillion at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival this summer in Portland
This summer we’ll volunteer at the Oregon Food Bank – there are 2 shifts for the Krewe – Tuesday, May 15 from 6-8:30 pm – to pack food inside at the OFB warehouse, and Saturday, June 16 in the garden.
In 2017 we were proud to support the Wetlands Conservancy in Portland, Oregon and the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program in Thibodaux, Louisiana. We raised over a $1000 that was divided between the two organizations.
