Today is #GivingTuesday, the "Black Friday" for charitable giving and part of an international movement to create a day of giving back. Please consider participating by making a gift of time or money to the Lake Champlain Committee. You don't need to be wealthy to be a philanthropist. Below are ten ways you can support the work for clean, accessible water with your time, money or action. No need to get up early, jockey in line, or rush around -- you can make your donation online. Any contribution you make will strengthen our programs and impact.
