Another Reason Bette Should Leave Vegas – A Drunk Mayor

TMZ
Vegas Mayor Rips ‘Fat and Short Bette Midler’
Posted Nov 28th 2009 12:05AM by TMZ Staff

The 26 Tree Initiative

BHSEC’s 26-Tree Initiative

As part of Mayor Bloomberg’s incentive to plant 1 million trees in New York City by 2017, BHSEC recently planted 26 trees in its yard. Funded by NYC Parks and the New York Restoration Project (a charity founded by Bette Midler), the city’s arboreal initiative, called PlaNYC, is part of a larger plan of 127 proposals for a greener city that was unveiled by Mayor Bloomberg in 2007.

Green Friday Is The New Black Friday

Make Green Friday the New Black Friday
November 25, 2009

Although I would like to support local retailers to boost our ailing economy, I still feel my money is better spent aiding our ailing environment and feeding our fellow starving citizens. So instead of lining up at 4am at your neighborhood big box store trying to snag that single item on sale for 50% off, consider a contribution in your gift recipient’s name to one of the many reputable green charities:

The Conservation Fund is the nation’s foremost environmental organization dedicated to protecting America’s most important landscapes and waterways. Read More
