August3Vote for clean streams! We need your help, and not in the get down and dirty, typical Clean Your Streams kind of way. We have been nominated for the PIG Difference Grant Program and need your votes to be awarded funds to support our stream cleanup programs. The more votes we get, the more funding we receive. New Pig Corporation created the PIG Difference grant program. Each year, they award approximately $25,000 to various projects that catalyze their mission, which is to directly fund local, grassroots projects that restore conserve, and protect five of America’s most important habitats: rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds; swamps and wetlands; wet forests; estuaries; aquifers.

We chose to seek funding for our stream cleanup projects, including Clean Your Streams Day and Clean Your Streams 365. You can read our full grant proposal on the PIG Difference website. This year marks the 20th Annual Clean Your Streams Day and we are halfway to our goal of fundraising $20,000 needed to support this program each year. Your vote can help us get that much closer! The voting period remains open until August 20. You can vote once per 24 hours, per device (no log-in or email address required). Please share with friends, family, colleagues, and anyone else you know that depends on our water resource here in northwest Ohio, which should be everyone you know. You can help us spread the word by sharing our Twitter and Facebook posts about voting with your social media networks! We at Partners for Clean Streams thank you in advance for your votes and hope to see you at this year’s Clean Your Streams Day. Vote at
