Thank you Georgia Conservancy members and friends! It did not matter if you were a Browncoat or a Trekkie, a Ringer or a Star Wars fan, this is our planet and you made sure that the Georgia Conservancy will represent it on a universal stage!
The Georgia Conservancy has now boldly gone where no environmental organization has gone before ... we have been named an official charity of Dragon*Con, the largest multi-media and pop-culture celebration in the Universe!
The Conservancy competed alongside four other worthy organizations to be named as an official charity. Voting took place between April 15th and April 28th, and after a tremendous amount of support from friends and fans, the Conservancy finished second place in the voting. We traveled to a Braves game dressed as Chewbacca and we bombarded our Facebook friends with sci-fi and fantasy inspired memes - and it paid off.
Dragon*Con will descend upon downtown Atlanta on August 30th through September 2nd. Look for the Georgia Conservancy!
