There are few projects with the ability to capture so many great causes: environment, animals and health. The Girls Gone Green have been growing strong here in Jacksonville for more than 5 years, but the group is ready to move to the next level. After establishing successful local campaigns like No Meat March, Northeast Florida Veg Fest, Hang Up the Foam, and Delicacies of Despair, the Girls now want to build regionally with a conference on animal/environment/food issues right here in Jacksonville. A regional conference of this kind could put Jacksonville on the map for all the right reasons, building on the great things we have to offer here in our city.
“Becoming a One Spark project is our response to an increased demand of more sustainable practices, humane choices and healthier alternatives. We are doing as much as we can as a volunteer-run organization, but if we are going to create the snowball effect that is necessary, then we need to be giving these important issues the time and attention they deserve. Donations will help secure many of the things we’d like to accomplish by providing us the resources we so desperately need,” says Julie Watkins, Executive Director of The Girls Gone Green.

With a vote for Project No. 20336, a little goes a long way. www.beonespark.com/discover/creator_projects/the-girls-gone-green
