"The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges."

We need your help to raise $100,000 in four nights to help the victims of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake. No country in the Western Hemisphere has been battered more than Haiti in the last 500 years—the nearly complete annihilation of its native population over two decades, a brutal slave regime, ongoing foreign military interventions over hundreds of years, brutal dictatorships supported by western powers, blockades of aid and more recently, devastating natural disasters from hurricanes to this latest earthquake.

Enjoy a rare evening of wine tasting with one of America's most prolific and popular comedian/writer/actors Lewis Black at the release of his wine, “Black Red Wine”. Black’s wine is said to be “a compelling high-end, spicy, upfront and robust mix of premium California Napa and Lake Country Cabernet Sauvignon.” Sounds hilarious. Or eh, at least his live performance will be. 100% of the sales will benefit the 52nd Street Project, a not-for-profit organization that matches the kids of Hell's Kitchen with professional theater artists to create original theatre.

Just like every other industry, going green has become a mantra among airlines, car rental companies and even hotel chains. The fuel crunch of a few years ago forced all the airlines into belt-tightening mode and the results—lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions—are good news for the environment.

In conjunction with the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, the Sex Ed Advocacy Group will be hosting a performing arts event commemorating World AIDS Day while continuing to raise awareness about the current state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in New York and showcase PPNYC's Project Streetbeat Program, which works with at-risk populations. 

Giving isn’t always easy.  Especially come the holidays in this stellar economy (yup, that's sarcasm), dipping into your already dwindling bank account is hard to do.  Bidding for Good allows you to purchase your holiday gifts while giving back.  Gifts include golf clubs, vacations and designer bags.

Negotiators from all over the globe hope to come to terms on a binding agreement regarding emissions reductions that both developed and developing nations can agree to. The stakes are high: This conference represents the final step in negotiations years in the making—and the results could chart a course toward success or failure in human efforts to control the carbon beast we set free in the industrial revolution.

“[The Audobon Society’s] recently-released Birds and Climate report clearly shows that climate change is affecting birds – and our world – now. For the past 40 years, as our climate has warmed, birds have shifted their winter ranges further and further north. This ecological disruption is yet another wake up call that we must act quickly to solve the climate crisis. The birds' northward movement is another signal that climate change is here and action is needed now.
