Linda Regan, from Santa Rosa, CA, wants to take deep breaths and not worry about what she's breathing in. For the past 10 years, she's been a volunteer for the American Lung Association, an organization that is fighting hard to prevent anyone from weakening or undermining the Clean Air Act or the protective standards the law provides. As a volunteer for the ALA, Linda is helping fight to ensure EPA has the legal authority and necessary funding to continue to protect the public health from air pollution! Truly magnificent Linda! What a sigh of relief that you care about our air! https://www.facebook.com/linda.regan.10 https://www.facebook.com/OurGreenChallenge

Andrew Evans, from Cardiff in the UK, sent in OGC's second submission for our "Care, Dare, Act Aware." Thanks to Andrew a few of his friends and neighbours have tasted the lettuces he's grown, even while he's dealing with a pesky neighbor who doesn't seem to care for the garden much. Inspiring story of good temper despite the obstacles! https://www.facebook.com/Andy.evans987   https://www.facebook.com/OurGreenChallenge
