TRENTON, N.J. - Sept. 18, 2014 - PRLog -- EarthShare New Jersey (ESNJ) is celebrating its 20th Anniversary with a 20 for 20 campaign to raise at least $20,000 for NJ’s environment by the end of 2014. The public and businesses are invited to donate $20 or more throughout the year to support an environmental project(s) they are passionate about. When making a donation, donors will select a project where they want a portion of that donation to be applied.  Project choices are targeted toward:  air – tree plantings and green energy; land – trail maintenance and rain gardens; water – beach and river cleanups; or wildlife – eagle camera and wildlife releases.

ESNJ member organizations are submitting projects to be considered for funding.  Once the campaign ends and the public’s areas of interest defined, projects will be announced and the donors will be invited to participate.  The objective is to offer opportunities across the state so that all of the supporters can get involved.

“This campaign offers us an opportunity to reach a broader audience and obtain funding for a project we’ve had on our radar for a while,” says Britta Wenzel, ESNJ Board President. “We hope the public will support their passion whether it is air, water, land or wildlife related so that together we can make NJ a cleaner, safer and healthier place to live work and play.”

“The Campaign is a great way for individuals, families, schools, community groups and businesses to rally around NJ's environment and support a project that speaks to them personally,” says Paula Aldarelli, ESNJ Executive Director. “The environment impacts everyone. This project enables them to not only financially help protect it, but also have a say and get involved in making a difference.”

To make a donation and vote for a project, visit the ESNJ website at http://www.earthsharenj.org. Funded projects will be announced in early 2015.  For companies interested in joining the 20 for 20 Green Team, please contact Paula Aldarelli at paldarelli@earthsharenj.org or 609-989-1160.
