Reaching out to Grasstops

Dear Amazing CCL Volunteers,

We are a group of courageous, big-thinking volunteers and we are making great strides towards the passage of carbon fee and dividend legislation and solving climate change because of your incredible work.

As we continue to think BIG, some of us are going to be motivated to reach out to various leaders who could contribute significantly to our work, either financially or by adding their name to our cause.  (see grasstops) People like Sir Richard Branson, Suzie Tompkins Buell, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, Henry Paulson, former Senator Snowe, etc.

Great! This could be a huge boost to our work and we want to make sure we are coordinating efforts. Before you initiate contact with someone who is well known publicly, please send an email to  That way we can let you  know if you are the first to approach, or if there is an effort already underway to which you could contribute.
