Brewster, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2008
The Chuckie Goodnight Foundation For The Environment today launched an enhanced website, http://www.chuckiegoodnightfoundation.org. The new web content will provide users with an interactive experience to learn more about the non-profit environmental organization and ways to help spread environmental awareness.
The foundation's mission is to educate children about Earth stewardship and social ethics. They work to preserve green spaces with the intent to create botanical sanctuaries and learning centers in the future. Each year, the foundation awards scholarships to students pursuing environmental studies and supports other land trust and environmental organizations on the local, county, state and national levels.
Chuckie Goodnight, a character from the book Chuckie Goodnight: A Bedtime Story is the foundation's spokesman. Along with his crew of loyal friends from the book, Chuckie visits schools, libraries and other places to give environmental workshops to children.
"At the Chuckie Goodnight Foundation, our focus is to teach the children about being kind and respectful of Earth," said Cherie Ingraham, founder of the Chuckie Goodnight Foundation For The Environment and author of the book. "It is the responsibility of all of us to help restore the health of our planet so that future generations may have a legacy."
Some of the new website's features include Chuckie's blog, environmental games and activities, tips for Earth Day activities and going green, kids memberships, an inspirational video on protecting Earth, and an online donation form, making it easier for individuals and businesses to support the foundation's cause and receive complementary foundation merchandise.
"It was important to us to create a website that was not only highly informative, but also appealing to children in order to generate true excitement about helping Earth," said Ingraham. "We are confident that the interactive features on the website will inspire much enthusiasm."
