Pride Rock Wildlife Refuge is one of the many North Texas environmental and animal welfare organizations participating in North Texas Giving Day Sept. 14. Courtesy of North Texas Giving Day.

Sept. 14, 2017

Today is North Texas Giving Day, a day when your donation of $25 or more is enhanced with the addition of bonus dollars donated by local foundations, businesses and philanthropists.

Many North Texans have been digging deep into their pockets to help Hurricane Harvey and Irma relief efforts. Consider a donation to our local environmental groups as a bit of preventive medicine. These are the organizations raising awareness about environmental issues like climate change, which is widely believed to contribute to these natural disasters. They're also the groups promoting solutions to global warming such as conservation and renewable energy.
