When I joined Reuse Minnesota as Executive Director in 2021, I did so because of my personal and professional dedication to reuse. I believe that reuse in all its forms - from resale to rental to repair - is critical to addressing many environmental and social issues facing our society today. Reuse reduces waste. Reuse creates jobs and opportunities for talent development. Reuse fosters connections and builds relationships.
Reuse Minnesota is a nonprofit dedicated to leading a movement grounded in the principles of reuse. We build partnerships and support a vibrant network of reuse practitioners through education, promotion, and advocacy. And we envision a world with regenerative, reuse-centered communities that protect the environment and value the well-being of future generations.
December 2022 marks the 10 year anniversary of Reuse Minnesota. I am honored and excited to be part of this important milestone as the organization grows and expands our work and programming. Part of that growth includes building our membership and also connecting with individuals who would like to support our work financially.
As the end of the year approaches, I would like to invite you to make a personal gift to Reuse Minnesota. As part of our 10-year celebration, our goal is to raise $10,000 by June 30, 2023. Individual giving is admittedly a newer thing for us, so we thank you in advance for helping us take this step. Whether it is $10 or $1000, every dollar counts.
Thank you for your support!
