Dear Dr. Piazza:
I want to personally thank you for your generous
online contribution to the American
Canoe Association (ACA). Knowing that you care
enough about ACA and its mission to donate
hard earned dollars is a great source of motivation
to ACA staff and volunteers.
Your support will help ACA in its efforts
to protect the places that make paddling so
to increase the voice and clout of paddlers,
and to make the nation’s waterways more
paddle friendly. Recent ACA accomplishments
include, forcing dozens of illegal polluters
eliminating jet ski use on most national park
waters, protecting wild arctic rivers from
oil drilling impacts, supporting local waterway
projects, securing waterway access, and publishing
nationally acclaimed reports on jet ski impacts
and on canoe and kayak safety.
As the ACA - now over 50,000 members strong
- continues to grow, our ability to preserve
the wonderful experience of paddling also grows.
Clearly this process can not happen without the
assistance provided each year by people like
you, people who enjoy paddling and care about
the future of our rivers, streams, lakes and
coastal waters. You can be assured that the ACA
will be hard at work making the most of every
dollar, and making the world a better place to
Once again, your donation is most appreciated.
