Provocative slogan for a massive corporate entity like Aspen Snowmass but it certainly gets the message across. The Give A Flake campaign wants to turn your concern about climate change into action and it lays out the steps one by one. If you give a flake make sure to follow up with elected officials and support quality organizations like Protect Our Winters that are on the battle front of legislation:
