[this email went out today to Green Horizon donors who haven’t contributed recently]

We hope you’ve received your copy of Green Horizon Magazine issue #41 having the theme: “Turning Point.” If not, please let us know.

In the past we’ve sent out project communiqués and sustainer solicitations via postal mail, but we now have enough email addresses to also reach out electronically. Please do let us know that you’ve received this so we can confirm the email address we have in our database (and if by chance your postal mailing address has changed recently, please send along an update).

We’re in the process of gathering material and resources for the production of issue #42. It will appear in the spring, but the deadline for articles will be January 1.

What keeps us going are contributions of two kinds: Sustaining donations are crucial (some send in $25, some $50, some $100 or more). But we also very much appreciate when our readers are motivated to submit articles, poems, or letters to the editor. Please consider contributing in both ways!

“Turning Point” . . . though the dramatic electoral campaigns are behind us, the social ferment of 2020 continues. It seems evident that an historical inflection point is at hand as ecological and social issues jolt the consciousness of so many around the world. New pathways toward the greening of society may be opening up, and that’s what our magazine covers. We’ve been recognized as the longest regularly-appearing U.S. print publication focusing on the international Green political and social movements. Our endurance is attributable to those who proactively sustain our project because they understand that society must go green. We’re grateful for the support.

You can send in material and/or checks via postal mail to:
Green Horizon Foundation
PO Box 2029, Princeton, NJ 08543

. . . or contribute online:

We continue to print hardcopy out of concern that cyberspace has become so noisy and congested that important content may only get a superficial reading. We hope you agree with us that Green Horizon content is of special relevance for the community of ecological activists and influencers that we endeavor to reach twice a year.

P.S. — You might have heard that John Rensenbrink was waylaid last month by a parasitic disease called babesiosis (the second-most common blood parasite) … apparently from a tick bite. He was quite sick with it, in the ICU for a while, but the good news is that John is now recovering at a rehab facility. Feel free to send him a “get well soon” card!
