Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) Today!
Here’s a guest post from Mirah Lim Todd from Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) on what’s been going on with the organization lately and how you can help by joining JET today!
Formed in 1991, JET is a non profit nongovernmental environmental organization which supports protection of the environment. Check out JET on facebook.
2012 is JET’s year to dream big. We want to become a self sustaining organization in the next five years. As such we’ve launched a new fundraising drive to raise J$45,000,000 (approximately $500,000 US) over the next five years for our Sustainability Fund.
In order to reach our target, we’ve set out a detailed plan and are taking a variety of approaches, including creating an updated JET information packet with a press kit folder as well as an eight page and four page booklet with the help of Pear Tree Press; increasing our individual and corporate members and reinvigorating our existing membership; partnering with private sector companies on creative initiatives like the JET and Stocks and Securities IPO project; and joining forces with party promoters like Dream Entertainment to sell tickets with part proceeds going to JET. We are excited about all our new endeavours and have high expectations that they will bring us closer to our big dream over time.
We are particularly looking forward to increasing our membership base and improving our relationship with our existing members. With all the new happenings at JET, this year is shaping up to be a great year to become a JET member. We have created several new ways in which you can help JET preserve Jamaica’s natural resources, and we’ve also come up with tokens to show our appreciation for your support.
