SCELP Donor since 2016
"During this most unconventional year, the one thing I am so thankful this year brought is more South Carolinians getting out and exploring our BEAUTIFUL state. I have enjoyed meeting new people while exploring from the Upstate to the Lowcounty. I have enjoyed hearing from park rangers and DNR that our parks and WMA areas are much busier. We are naturally blessed with such a beautiful place to call home, but it does not come easy. It takes hard work and dedication to keep our rivers, oceans, air, mountains, wetlands, swamps, and marshes clean and healthy for us to enjoy all the things we South Carolinians love to do. Organizations like SCELP do just that. They fight for our natural resources and ultimately for the betterment of our people. They fight to protect the wetlands that protect wildlife and help prevent flooding in our Lowcounty. They fight to protect the beautiful mountain views that the Upstate has by ensuring that the land use is compatible with its surroundings. On Palmetto Giving Day I am asking you to please donate to SCELP. I have seen firsthand the hard work, dedication, and passion SCELP puts into each battle they fight for South Carolina. If you love what makes South Carolina beautiful and amazing, donate to SCELP so that they can continue to fight to protect our natural resources. When we do that, we make life better for each South Carolinian and we protect what brings people to our beautiful state. South Carolina has 5 million people, if each person donated $5 that would be close to 25 million dollars. Georgetown alone has 62,680 people, $5 would be $313,400 to help support SCELP in their fight. Clean out your change drawer, do not buy a coffee that day, take your lunch, and instead of going out to eat that weekend donate it. Any little bit helps, and it all adds up. Help SCELP keep South Carolina beautiful and safe! I can't wait to see everyone on our rivers, beaches, trails, lakes, and in our mountains for years to come."
