Join Climate Rise, the virtual rally to show our solidarity with our fellow humans and nonprofits in this time of crisis. We are an energized community and we want Climate Rise to inspire you to achieve something that gives you hope, comfort, or an outlet for your creativity or your sweat equity.

This event is free and anyone can participate. We encourage kids to sign up too! All you need to do is sign up and pick an activity that inspires and challenges you. There are no boundaries to what you can do. Need ideas? Check out the Photobook from Climate Rise in 2020 here.

Then join us on April 24th in collectively making a difference across the country. We will be sending more information about this event in April.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all and many of our vital nonprofits are still in desperate need of support. We have heard from many of you who recognize this need. If you wish to fundraise as part of your participation, you can select from our full list of more than 100 nonprofits that do the hard work of protecting the planet.

When we recover from this, it will be the beginning of a new era. It will be the most important time ever to support the environment and our grants program so that organizations, large and small, can continue to push for the policies, solutions, and political will to protect our planet while building anew. Join us to create a positive impact for the future.

Knit, ride a pogo-stick, set a goal on your bike trainer, sew masks for healthcare workers, play a new piano piece, write 100 postcards, run a 5K, meet your push-up goal, paint something for the world to see! See a full list of ideas below in the FAQ and we have a list of fun teams to join! If you have suggestions for more indoor and outdoor activities, please send them our way.

Prizes:

Raise $250 by April 24, 2021, for a pair of snazzy Climate Ride cycling socks.

Raise $1,000 by April 24, 2021, and get a Climate Ride Nomadix camp towel that can also be used as a yoga mat or picnic blanket.

Raise $2,000 by April 24, 2021, and we’ll send you a custom Climate Ride fanny pack from Oveja Negra.

The overall top three fundraisers for this event will earn a Climate Ride branded Patagonia Houdini jacket!
