As part of a sweepstakes in support of global warming awareness, Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics has made a donation of a $500 gift certificate to be combined with a DVD of a documentary about ocean acidification, called “A Sea Change”.
The Climate Action Giveaway is the biggest green sweepstakes in the history of environmental causes, with over 230 winners to be chosen.
The campaign launched on September 23 and continues until prizes are awarded by random drawing on December 7, 2009, when the United Nations gathers in Copenhagen for the COP15 Climate Change Conference.
The Climate Action Giveaway is a project of WE ADD UP, which invites people to visit www.climategiveaway.com to sign up and be automatically be entered for a chance to win exciting green prizes
WE ADD UP’s goal is to get 1 million people learning about climate solutions and participating in simple actions in order to help create a tipping point in public engagement necessary to forge real solutions in the coming months.
Each week, participants will be sent an email with a suggestion of such an action they can take. Non-profit partners 1Sky and 350.org are helping direct the actions participants are invited to take.
WE ADD UP’s Facebook page and Twitter feed will educate fans with climate facts, trivia, news, and the various actions they can take to be a part of the campaign. Its message is simple: Take action, Make history, Win prizes.
With the recent passing of the American Clean Energy and Security Act by the House of Representatives and international climate talks in Copenhagen this December, many see an opportunity for the U.S. to act as a global leader in clean energy and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

WE ADD UP is a for-benefit green business, global campaign and marketing tool using organic cotton t-shirts that literally “counts you in” for your contribution to help solve the climate crisis.
Every shirt is custom printed by hand with a unique number that represents the individual’s place in the sequential global count of people adding up to make change. As the count grows, it demonstrates to the world that “WE ADD UP.”
On the back of each shirt is a word or phrase that describes an action almost anyone can take to reduce their carbon footprint - the contribution their lifestyle makes to greenhouse gases - such as Unplug, Lights Off, Carpool, Hybrid, Bike, Buy Local, and 27 others. No one can do everything. Everyone can do something. And, WE ADD UP.
