This year, for Giving Tuesday at Mono Lake …

… we wanted to send out a happy snapshot and a quote from the writings of Mono Lake Committee Co-founder David Gaines.

Mono Lake can teach us to listen, to watch, to live quietly, to see the world anew. -- David Gaines

Totally honestly, we’re a bit on the fence about Giving Tuesday ourselves. Is it just hype? Another bit of chaos to add to the holiday season? Does it do any good? What we’re not on the fence about is sharing our love for this place and the Mono Lake Committee members who make the work to protect and restore it possible, every day. So, we’ll go with that, and the simple reminder that we’re out here feeling thankful for your support, in all the beautiful ways you choose to show it. And, as always, we’re sending you best wishes from Mono Lake. #givingtuesday
