Rally! Bring Back the Bus [Tuesday, May 1st at 6:30pm. City Hall]

Call to action! Pre-City Council meeting rally – Meet at 6:30 and we’re bringing it into the City Council Meeting at 7pm.

Stand in solidarity with WORKERS, DISABLED, LOW-COME, COMMUTERS, CAR-LESS, DISADVANTAGED and ALL RESIDENTS and visitors on the barrier island who were affected by the CRUEL drastic bus cuts – people were denied their RIGHTS to a public meeting. RALLY and DEMAND our bus services be restored immediately.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION should never be on the chopping block!!!

Adding insult to injury, the city has been using the municipal bus illegally for private charters at taxpayers expense, while everyday bus riders are left on the curb – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

BRING SIGNS!

Let’s celebrate Planet Earth before our current President destroys it with his oil drilling at national parks, opening oceans for oil rigs and appointing an oil lobbyist to run the EPA who just lowered mpg requirements so big oil can make $$$$ while the rest of the world is turning to renewable energies, for example China is spending three times more on renewables than the USA, essentially turning the USA into a third world nation, leaving the USA far behind when it comes to future technologies. We could have been leaders when it came to renewables, but our current admin is sending us back to the dark ages. [EARTH DAY CELEBRATION: April 22nd]

Private screening of Waves of Hope, From Long Beach with Love documentary on April 28th.

WAVES OF HOPE, FROM LONG BEACH WITH LOVE: The moving story of how a group of Hurricane Sandy survivors in Long Beach, NY came to aid their fellow Americans in Texas in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Originally conceived as a small donation drive by the husband/wife team of Tim & Christina Kramer, their idea blossomed into a massive relief effort by the citizens of Long Beach and surrounding areas. In the end, five large truckloads of donated supplies were driven down to victims of Harvey in Texas and over $40,000 in gift cards were collected, which the Kramers and their Waves of Hope team personally handed out to victims of the storm who needed it the most. Join them on their journey as they bring joy to others in need on the crest of their wave of hope.

There will be a private screening  of the documentary at St. Mary of the Isle (315 E Walnut St, Long Beach, NY 11561) on April 28th. For tickets, please visit:

About the Project:

HELP US BUILD A TINY HOUSE, SO THEY CAN BUILD MORE HOMES FOR THOSE IN NEED!! 

Back in College, I spent Spring Break building a house for Habitat for Humanity and the mental imprint it made on me was permanent. Having a home is something many of us take for granted, especially in a culture where our housing footprints keep enlarging.  I work in the home design industry so in many ways I’m part of that, but my firm also creates designs that are as sustainable as possible and are part of an increasing movement to build greener structures. Micro-living and net-zero structures are both cornerstones of that movement and the Tiny Beach House brings both TOGETHER!

The Tiny Beach House project features a live tiny house build during the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce Home & Garden Show on May 19th and 20th 2018. The Tiny Beach House will be erected primarily with salvaged construction materials/waste and will highlight sustainable building practices, resulting in a net-zero micro-model of green living.  Public tours will take place on Sunday May 20th so all Long Islanders can see how downsized greener living is just as comfortable and stylish, and can see how easy it is to build sustainably. After completion of the live 3-day public build and tours, the Tiny Beach House will be available to win in a national online forum, with all proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity in Nassau County NY.

We are asking for your one-time generous support of this project. Our gift-in-kind sponsors include SunPower by EmPower Solar, Prochillo Construction and Wolf & Wing Interior Design; however we are in need of capital contributions to cover fixed project costs such as the buildable trailer, the roof and plumbing.  Please consider contributing at the following levels to be listed as a sponsor:

Level 1: Tiny Beach House Friend $100

Level 2: Tiny Beach House Supporter $500

Level 3: Tiny Beach House Hero $1000

Our Tiny Beach House team will be deeply grateful for any size contribution you can make, and if you include your name, every single one of you will be thanked in our liner notes. It truly takes a village!!
