Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We would love if you could join us for the Envirolution Holiday Party on December 4, 2008 from 7:00 PM - 10:30 PM. We are hosting the event at Inc Lounge (224 W 49th Street) at the Time Hotel and are providing drink specials and music entertainment.
At 8:30 PM we will be unveiling our new energy efficiency campaign in New York City and we will be available for any questions regarding our recent programs and any progress we've made since you last saw us. Below you will see a bulleted version of our recent accomplishments.
Please feel free to pass this invite on to anyone you think would be interested.
Happy Holidays and hope to see you soon.

2008 Highlights:
--Completed first full year of Envirolution High School Clubs in Reno, NV and Truckee, CA (8 total clubs = 75 students)
--Received 501 (c)(3) status as an official Tax-Exempt Organization
--Established strategic web-based partnerships with MakeMeSustainable.com and CreativeCitizen.com
--Organized 2nd Annual Reno Envirolution Experience (community-wide event that focused on highlighting youth environmental leadership, included booths, music, drinks, and food) w/ approximately 1500 attendees.
--Launch Party in NYC (over 350 people joined us we revealed our new website and program focus)
--Launched new website in May

Currently working on several Green Workforce Development Programs:
---Small Business Resource Management System (Envirolution and MakeMeSustainable.com auditing tool. The focus will be to train youth to use this tool to become small business sustainability consultants. This incredible tool serves both the auditor and the business. First version to appear in the next few weeks!)
--Win-Win Campaign in NYC: Envirolution and MakeMeSustainable in partnership with various notable companies, organizations and government agencies have developed a:
• Small business energy and carbon footprint auditing and rating campaign
• Energy consulting training program for high school and college students
• All housed in our online Small Business Resource Management System [SBRMS]
--High School and College extracurricular club model in Reno/Tahoe (Currently we are facilitating 6 HS clubs and 2 college clubs. 3 of our HS's are working on full energy audits of their entire campuses. One club has started their own recycled clothing and merchandise business.)

First Quarter '09 Goals:
--Launch Win-Win officially in NYC and have 20 students doing 100 audits and seeing a 30% reduction in GhG/CO2 emissions
--Develop extra-curricular Club model further, put together a Club Workbook (How to start your own Envirolution Club), finish 3 complete energy audits and implement energy efficiency reduction campaigns, engage in 3 additional energy audits, and then look to raise money to develop further and expand.
--Website v2 (including a more comprehensive individual sustainability Challenge and a Club profile network software)
