2014 Earth Day Startup


Earth Day needs your help to get started!
I have done a bunch of behind-the-scenes work this past week to get ready and now would like to go LIVE with the Earth Day website and start accepting booth registration payments.

I would like to accept short-term LOANS (3-4 weeks) or GIFTS for a few items to get the “Portland Earth Day Coalition” as a business off the ground. As I am starting this new venture, I am a bit short on funds and will be able to pay back any loans within a month as booth registration for the event starts coming in (see budget for 2014 Earth Day below):
