Episode 53: WeatherHype Holiday Spectacular (2018)
It's been a few months since Castle and Minh were able to record an episode of WeatherHype together, so obviously there's going to be a bit of shenanigans in this episode. In addition to everyone's favorite "Song of the Week" segment, we have some cool gift ideas for the weather person in your life, a few organizations that we will be giving to this holiday season, and lots of other weird things...because, well, it's us. Did you not expect it to get a little weird?
Castle is giving to:
Cool Effect - Combining science, expertise, and transparency, we are creating a community built around one simple vision: give people the power and confidence to band together and reduce the carbon pollution that causes climate change.
Carbon Fund - A whopping 50,000 pounds a year! That’s the average American's total carbon footprint which includes the emissions from your home, car, air travel and everything you use. We are all responsible for climate change and we all must be part of the solution.
American Red Cross - We respond to an emergency every 8 minutes. No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross goes wherever we’re needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most.
Minh is giving to:
Maxfund - MaxFund is a true no kill animal shelter and adoption center that challenges the traditional methods of animal sheltering by leading the no kill movement in Colorado. We strive to give animals, including the injured, abandoned, and abused, a "second chance at life.
Colorado Uplift - Colorado UpLift employs full-time staff who are committed to the students they serve. As teacher/mentors and life coaches, they develop long-term relationships as early as elementary school. This bond continues through middle and high school, providing the relational support missing from students’ lives.
Colorado UpLift uses a relational approach that produces superior results.
