Many of us are guilty of procrastinating. Whether it’s our taxes or credit card bill, there’s something about an impending deadline that doesn’t feel urgent until it’s right in front of you.
For those of you who thrive on tight deadlines, you’re in luck! This year’s carbon raffle is about to wrap up — and this is your last chance to get your tickets. Enter today at carbonraffle.org.
The best part about this raffle is that every dollar raised goes towards funding the non-profit work of Climate XChange, a small 501(c)(3) organization committed to ambitious, science-based climate action at the local level. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. It presents massive challenges to our way of life and future. However, addressing it also presents incredible opportunities for innovation, job creation, and, most importantly, a chance at a healthier future for all of us.
At a time when our federal government stagnates on climate action, states and local governments have the opportunity to pass policies that will ensure the well-being of communities by preparing them for the worst impacts of climate change, improving public health, and generating investments into clean technology. That is what our staff at Climate XChange are committed to pushing for, understanding that these solutions must come from local communities that best understand their challenges and needs. That is why we work directly with state and local governments to provide research, education, and tools that can best inform policy choices on the path to decarbonizing our economy.
If you believe our work is important, one way you can get involved and help right now is by entering our raffle. It is the largest source of funding for our organization, and carrying it out successfully will allow our team to continue growing and expanding our impact.
But there is something in it for you, too!
We call this raffle a win-win because we are able to fund our mission and move environmental action forward while also giving you a chance to win the safest, sleekest, lowest emitting car on the road!
The raffle winner will be able to custom build their choice of a fully optioned Tesla Model S, Model X, or Model 3, and because we don’t want you to have to deal with putting up your own money for prize taxes, we will cover them too! Oh, and if you don’t win first place, you still get a chance at our second and third place cash prizes — for a total prize pool worth over $195,000!
Also, did you know that last year’s winner actually entered the raffle through CleanTechnica? Check out his awesome new Tesla in this testimonial.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:
I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
