girls mailing list at  i'm forwarding this here
as an fyi sort of thing...]

hey y'all...

i'm not a normal ig lister, but i've been asked to get in touch with the
group to relay a little scheme that we've been brainstorming over at hte.

as you all may know, the next honor tour is currently in the planning stages
for the year 2000.  this has been somewhat of an experimental year for us,
as we haven't had tour funds to depend on in the realms of grants and
keeping ourselves going as a free standing organization.  we've done well.
however, as next years tour dates grow closer, we find ourselves in
desperate need of funds to manifest our visions.  the tour itself will cost
over one hundred thousand dollars to bring to the stage, and we are not
financially prepared at this time to make such a large investment.  faye,
winona and the crew are working constantly with the issues, and don't have
the time for a large fundraising campaign.

here's where you come in.  i know that in the past years the list has
donated significant amounts of money to different organizations in amy or
emily's name, in celebration of their birthdays.  i also know (first hand)
that hte has already been one of the recipients of your incredible
generosity.  we ask for your help again.  i recognize that there may be some
indecision concerning a repetition, but i sincerely hope it can be
overlooked.  amy's birthday is april 12th.  if everyone agrees, we'd like to
get this going soon.  please email me with thoughts, comments & questions.
we thank you so much for your consideration.

take care,

greta gohn & the honor the earth staff

...if you're not familiar with the goals & purpose of honor the earth,
please feel free to get in touch with me.  i can send you some literature &
answer any questions you may have.
