1st time marathon ladies: First ever marathon!!!

on 25 Sep 2011 in Berlin

Hi All,

We are running our first ever marathon (very very scared) and would like your support by making your lives more sustainable - through carbon savings....small actions, big difference ;)

All you need to do is follow the instructions on the right, browse the DoActions and find one (or more) that suits you and go ahead and make your pledge!

Some will be really easy, others take a bit more effort. But they've all got an environmental focus and the currency is CO2 - The DoNation calculates these savings and donates them to me, publishing your pledges here on my page.

You only pledge to do your chosen action for two months and all the information you need is provided here on The DoNation, making it really easy to complete. At the end of the two months you'll be asked how you got on, and at that point your donation is confirmed.

So please, get doing!

Would be much appreciated,

Emma, Hannah, Lotte and Nicky :)

First ever marathon!!!
