We've really enjoyed all of your savings stories and photos submitted these past two weeks. So, we figured we'd share a few so you could too.
We are Lakota Solar Enterprises, a Tribal Renewable Energy company! Our van’s transmission is in need of repairs. We rely on our van to carry out our projects, bringing solar air heaters to Native American families in need. The functionality of our van is vital to our work. $500 will be a huge help for us to safely transport systems to homes! Our solar heaters provide affordable heat sources to families living at life-or-death poverty rates, and help to reduce the dependency on polluting and destructive sources of energy. Make a difference; choose Lakota Solar Enterprises!
This picture is taken with my best friend/roommate, Heather, at her college graduation. I am saving up for my education because I believe it will be my greatest asset in life. My education will allow me to do everything I want to do and all the things that I thought I could not. Every time I look at the photo, it inspires me to keep on pushing forward and roll with punches even when tough gets tougher. - Shirley Trieu
I’m saving to attend the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin this fall. I plan on specializing in economic development and pursuing a career in public service after graduating. This picture, taken at the LBJ School, hopefully inspires you to think about how you can invest in yourself and your community. - Lance McNeill
