    An Open Letter from Earth to America


    It’s not goodbye, it’s see you at the polls. #BeAVoter #StandWithEarth

    Posted by Earth for America on Friday, November 2, 2018

    My fellow Americans,

    My name is Earth and, until last Friday, I was running for Congress (I guess penguins can’t hold public office? Who knew?). But this isn’t goodbye – it’s see you at the polls.

    Young people have a bad rap for not showing up to vote, but I have a feeling that this year is going to be different. There are 69.2 million young voters in America. If we all huddled together in voting booths on November 6, we would be the most powerful voice in this country. As a penguin, I know that we can all get through the harshest of storms if we stick together and each one of us does their part.

    You can’t vote for me, but it’s still really important that you vote. In every race, across the ballot. (Quick, find your polling place!)

    I know, you’re probably thinking, “What’s one vote really gonna do?” But here are the facts:

    Your vote matters. Your vote matters. Your vote matters.

    I’m not trying to hypnotize you, I’m just being real. It’s one of the easiest, and most impactful ways to make a difference. Do it for Earth. The planet. But me, too.

    Whatever you had planned to do on election day, go vote instead. Whatever you believe in, go vote.

    Whoever you are, go vote.

    Yours sincerely,

    Before You Go
