I grew up thinking that Greenpeace was the coolest environmental group around. They were willing to do stuff I only dreamed about. I wanted to be hanging banners from smokestacks that were emitting carcinogenic chemicals and fighting for the preservation of endangered species on a little rubber boat in the Antarctic.
Today the group is more relevant than ever, and through our Change It partnership with Greenpeace we're working to teach the next generation how to effect meaningful social and environmental change. For these and other reasons, I am thrilled to announce that I have just been elected to their Board of Directors. It's a huge honor, and it marks the fulfillment of my longtime wish to become part of Greenpeace and contribute to their work.
