Dear Malasher and Alex,
I’ve known you both since you were in elementary school. You know I do what I do because I care passionately about our planet and the people in our community.
I’ve never thought my goal was to have all of you go into environmental careers. My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
I recently had another energy audit of my house and they came back and blew cellulose insulation into the attic area. I’m hoping I can work with this company to further insulate the walls and eliminate the serious coldness in the upstairs bathroom. I’ve been trying to qualify for programs to help me get solar panels but everyone says my electric bills are so low that it’s not worth it. 🙁
We are currently sharing some of the information that you helped work on with new residents to our community. And we’re including a flyer to let people know how they can get help with getting a free home energy audit. We need to start at home even when working on a global problem like climate change. We need to speak up and speak out. We need to be the role models for the future.
The photo I’m attaching here is from a couple years ago and was taken in front of the Queens Botanic Garden’s LEED building. Give my love to Brandon and Haydee, too. I can’t believe you’re all 16 this year!
