Hello! We’re Kelsey and Leah, two college students from the East Coast, and we're spending this summer biking across the USA. Both of us are very active people -- outdoors as well as for the environment.

Mother's Day weekend has come and gone, and we're happy to report that our call to action on climate change was a resounding success! Over the past three days, thousands of Americans concerned about global warming—including many of you—organized over 465 events all over the country!
Mother's Day weekend is here! As of right now, hundreds of you have planned more than 475 events across the country in record time for this weekend. After talking with so many of you about your events, we can't wait to hear how they go!
