As we head into a holiday this week, I want to send out thanks to YOU and to everyone in our community. I'm so grateful you're committed to working with your peers and the industry on climate change.

From packaging to food waste, consumer engagement, policy work and more, there is a lot we plan to accomplish in the next year. And we hope you'll be there every step of the way. We are trying to close a funding gap to enable this work, and we need you to help us get there! We'll announce any new donors on stage at Climate Day 2020. And as ever, thank you to our current donors for enabling everything we do.

You can also RSVP for Climate Day 2020--let us know you'll be there! We still have speaking roles available; join our Dec. 11 call to learn more, especially if you have a story of climate innovation.

Happy Thanksgiving!

- Erin
