Voted Best Nonprofit of Bellingham!

We think the reason for our greatness is YOUThank you so much for making our victories possible.



Your investment = clean air, clean water, and a clean energy future.


Gratitude: this is the word that strengthens our optimism and determination as we regard the work that lies ahead. Because of you, we are ready to take on tough challenges and win; we are moved by your words of encouragement, and we are inspired by your actions. Your partnership is what makes our successes possible - and the crew here at RE Sources is extremely grateful for your contributions of time, expertise and money.

In a world beset with acts of terrorism, vanishing species, wars, famines, and the impacts of climate change, it is all too tempting to give in to apathy and despair. Believe me, I get it. The problems are so overwhelming that it's easy to dismiss our individual actions as little more than whispers in the face of hurricane force winds. 

But that's not really the point, is it? We all clearly know what we're up against, but still we act with passion and resolve. Because we love the Pacific Northwest. It defines us. We love its islands, waters, forests, orcas, salmon and shorelines. And we love our children and grandchildren.

I believe you and I are engaged in the most worthy of causes. We are creating a meaningful, resilient, healthy future and conspiring to provide the best of all possible worlds for our heirs. Clean air, clean water, and lives lived in harmony with the natural wonders that surround us. 

Thank you for joining the movement. 

In gratitude,

Crina
