Aurora Lights is happy to announce that the second grant from the proceeds of Still Moving Mountains: The Journey Home has been given to support the RRENEW Collective in Appalachia, Va.
The RRENEW Collective was created in the Summer of 2009 in the spirit of facilitating the placement of volunteers with organizations working for a sustainable Appalachia in the coal dependent region of Southwest Virginia. The Collective operates a volunteer house in Appalachia, Va, where volunteers can live and work together with local organizations for a more sustainable, healthy and just Appalachia–the town and the region.
The collective house/residence will also serve as a space to demonstrate and learn sustainable living practices that can be employed throughout the coal field regions of Appalachia. The grant will be used to purchase materials to finish the last bedroom in the collective and allow space for 6 long term, full time volunteers.
Thank you to everyone who has helped to sell the benefit CD. Since its release, Still Moving Mountains has been on CNN, CMT, FolkWax, Elmore Magazine and more. Let’s keep sellin’ ’em so more grants can go out.
