~  Two New Ways to Support Acterra
Announcing two additional ways you can support Acterra!

1. GoodSearch, a new Yahoo-powered search engine, donates 50% of its revenue, about a penny per search, to the user's favorite non-profit (Acterra, of course!).  The pennies add up quickly!

    Simply go to www.GoodSearch.com.
    In the "I'm supporting" box, type Acterra.
    Click Verify.
    Then search the internet from the Search box.

Make it even easier by adding GoodSearch to your internet browser's Bookmark Bar or make GoodSearch your internet browser's home page!

2. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage will make a $300 donation to your favorite non-profit when you close a home loan through the Wells Fargo Sharing Advantage Program. While we don't endorse any particular mortgage broker, we wanted to let you know of this opportunity.

Please let others know about these opportunities to support Acterra! Thanks to all of you who already support Acterra.  Your kind gifts allow us to create local solutions that foster a healthy natural environment!
