Yahoo! Over 60 indivdiual donors decided to support Grow Dat this holiday season in our big push last week, and this morning we reached the halfway point of our goal: $5,500 out of $10,000! That means we have $4,500 to raise before the end of the year. Won’t you find a way to contribute to help us Grow That Green?
