This year we are using #GivingTuesday to raise awareness on the importance of removing plastic bottles and other floatables from our amazing river to keep it clean, healthy, and beautiful. Your gift impacts our education and outreach programs that foster awareness, involvement, and a stewardship ethic; public policy and planning efforts that result in systemic, long term river improvements; and on-the-ground projects that physically improve the river and make it more accessible. Learn more about our Litter Free North Shore Channel Initiative

Special Announcement: We're truly honored to have people like you help advocate for the river. On November 28 , your donation to Friends will enter your name into a drawing to win a private tour for up to 10 people at Begyle Brewing. Here is some additional information about the tour: your guests must be 21+; tour lasts 90 minutes and includes three Begyle Beers and the glass.  

Together we can make a river free of plastic bottles and other floatables. Join a growing movement to restore the Chicago River to its natural glory. #LosetheLitter on #GivingTuesday.  Thank you for your donation.
