Frances is another of our wonderful nominees for the Eco Hero 2015 Contest. Frances is the heart and soul ( and muscle!) behind Creatively United for the Planet and she recently earned the nomination for Federal Green Party Candidate for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke!
A sense of despair that not enough was being done and more needed to be done to ensure we have a planet to call home. When I learned that less than 3% of all charitable giving in North America went to the environment, I was beside myself. I couldn't offer more money than what I currently was giving to my top 10 eco charities, so I committed to donating my time to build a movement and www.
If you were not doing this line of work- what would you be doing?
I have been a professional photographer for 25 years and would continue to find creative ways to foster awareness and compassion for the natural world. The Green Party is a natural extension of what I'm already doing with Creatively United for the Planet and how I live my life. I want to empower people so that together we can be the power that transitions us to a greener, cleaner, more prosperous world where we all thrive.
Together we have the power to be the change we want to see. It's essential for everyone to exercise their right to vote and not let fear stop them. People need to vote with their values and for the candidates who will make the change happen!
