vote before shabbat for Slow Money to rank as one of the top 10 best ideas for change


Those of you who came to the Food Conference may have gotten to hear from Woody Tasch, the founder of Slow Money.

The idea is a simple one: invest your money as if food, farms and fertility actually mattered. Get anyone who invests money (and if you have a 401k or an IRA, that’s you too) to direct just 1% of it toward small food enterprises and local food systems. Get at least that small sum of money out of the hands of Wall Street, huge banks and multinationals and use it, quite literally, as seed money. Invest in local farms, food systems, artisans, brewers, bakers, cheesemakers and so on and keep that money close to home.

Enter Change.org and their 10 Ideas for Change in America. Taking advantage of the concept of “the wisdom of crowds,” Change.org launched a campaign to find 10 great ideas. Folks have been voting already, and this is our chance at showing our friends at Slow Money that we support their work…

Voting closes today at 5 pm EST. Please visit Change.org and vote! It’s fun, important, and it only takes a couple minutes. Thanks and Good Shabbes!
