Seed A New Economy

Pledge $5 to seed a new economy

Starting Tuesday, October 6th 2009, thousands will join you in seeding a new economy by contributing $5 or more. 100% of the money goes to the Slow Money Alliance.

Our goal is 200,000 donations for a total of $1 million dollars that will be used to help Slow Money. Its first goal: a million people signing the Slow Money principles. From there, steering tens of millions dollars per year of creative funding to small food enterprises and organic farming, to support a new economic vision based on soil fertility, diversity and nonviolence. This is truly historic.

Make your pledge today, then return to this site and make your contribution of $5 or more. You may also donate directly on the Slow Money Alliance site starting October 6th. The event will run for one week - 12:00am EST on October 6th through 11:59pm EST on October 12th. The more we raise, the more media attention we'll get. If you don't want to wait until the 6th to donate, you can contribute now at the Slow Money Alliance website.

So you know we're on the up-and-up, all donations will be made on the Slow Money Alliance's website. We chose the Slow Money Alliance because its founders and board have a proven track record of running successful, socially responsible businesses. If anyone is going to pave the way for a radical shift in our economy - from the ground up -- it's them.

who are we and why are we doing this?

The idea was hatched in Santa Fe by Shelly Roche, Anthony Nicalo & Derek Shanahan. We're doing it because we (like many of you) want to change the world, and we had an idea, and we wanted to see if we could help make it happen. We're not making any money off this, we're just hoping to be able to demonstrate a new model for how the economy can work when social responsibility meets community-supported business.

We are not employed by the Alliance. We are enthusiastic members of the Alliance, and are inspired to act.
thank you

Your support means more than you'll ever know, to more people than you can imagine.

The Official Pardon from Saveagallon

Reports from the Sustainability Across America Tour

I knew from the start that this road trip wasn’t the most eco-friendly way to report on the sustainability movement. Yes, it’s been weighing on my conscience and my heavy carbon footprint. That is, until the good guys at Saveagallon issued me this Official Pardon!
I joined the Saveagallon community after college as a fun way to gauge all that carbon and cash I was saving by walking and biking to work everyday. It’s a great way to keep yourself motivated to maintain your alternative methods of transportation, and they make it fun for the whole family. Over the past year, the SAG guys have experimented with projects like SAG eco-allowances for kids, where you can tally alternative transportation savings to offer as incentives for your kids to carpool to soccer practice and more.
This year the organization based in Davis, California has teamed up with Davis Bicycles in a year long project with the Davis School District. They’ve created a mechanism to track participation in an alternative transportation contest by user, classrooms, schools and school districts to generate some real buzz around environmental responsibility, health, and community participation amongst kids.
Just the kind of stuff the movement for sustainability is built upon.

Check our shiny new Official Pardon and sign up to to put a fun twist on all that peddling and pavement pounding you’ve been doing!

Trumpets Blaring Certificate Ceremony Time…

Ms. Jones, for all your hard work and dedication to making the world a better place, we at would like to present to you one very cheesy, virtual pardon to drive as much as you need to see this tour through. If anyone give you any trouble about driving and eco-reporting just send them to this link. We’ve got your back!
