An easy way to help children and public schools!

Solar Panels

I think it's so important for kids to learn about environmental awareness from a young age, and realize that we all can make a difference. The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is helping out with this- and we can help FEE!  From their website:
The mission of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is to expand environmental and energy literacy. We believe the best way to catalyze awareness and action is to start with a small project that involves many stakeholders. For the past ten years, FEE has worked with schools around the world installing 1-5kW systems at schools. We’ve worked with partners on larger installations, but generally we try to get teams started on smaller projects and help build the market for future larger installations and education activities. Many of these projects are described on our blog site – www.energyseeds.com. All of our projects include participation from environmental groups, businesses and industries, and government agencies. We bring together people with diverse views and interests and help them to work toward a common goal.

Through our partnership with Cooler Planet, we will create a fund and process for helping new schools around the United States realize the energy and education benefits of solar panels.

For each blogger that posts the badge at the top of this post on their blog or website, solarpanelinfo.com will donate $10 to FEE.  So click on the link to grab the code for yourself and help out our schools and our children!
