April 22 Celebrate Earth Day - Join The Nature Conservancy for Picnic for the Planet
Groupon Earth Day Challenge

This non-profit has established a Spring 2012 Matching Gift Fund in the amount of $500,000 with the support of some of its most committed members. Every day the Earth provides nourishment for over 7 billion people. This April, let's give back. All you have to do to join the world's largest and most delicious Earth Day celebration is fundraise or donate to a picnic. With this money it will be able to double every donation it receives through this campaign up to $500,000. That's $1 million helping to protect nature for people! So, why should you donate money? The Nature Conservancy is the world's largest conservation organization, working in more than 30 countries and all 50 states. It works closely with the people who provide our food - farmers, ranchers and fisherman. The Nature Conservancy is attempting to set the record for most people picnicking in 24 hours. Our picnic can be part of the Guinness World Records® attempt! Each picnic must have at least 25 people & must be outdoors. Each picnic must have three people to witness the event, count participants and fill out a couple simple forms. My goal is to raise $100 for Picnic for the Planet 2012! We hope you join us on Earth Day for Picnic for the Planet! Be sure to check out these picnic-friendly recipes and other easy picnicking tips from Cooking Channel. I'll bring a healthy salad.
