Cynthia Lesky of Citizens’ Climate Lobby

Cynthia divides her time between Threshold Information, the company she founded, and volunteering for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, advocating for carbon pricing and other climate change solutions. I have been a volunteer for Citizens’ Climate Lobby about three years, and Cynthia has been my constant guide and supporter, keeping me informed and putting in a kind word to keep me “going.” I manage the Twitter feed @cclatx and you can find Cynthia on Twitter @CynthiaLesky. I am #grateful!

Deby Childress, Director, Bee Cave Arts Foundation

For ten years, Deby Childress has been at the helm of nonprofit Bee Cave Arts Foundation. In that time, it has grown in sophistication, with many exceptional art exhibitions and art education programs for children and adults offered year-round. The public art projects Deby has developed and installed make Bee Cave – located on the western edge of Austin – a delightful community in which to live and work. I have come to know Bee Cave Arts Foundation well, and I urge everyone to support it. How lucky the City of Bee Cave and Hill Country Galleria are to have Deby and The Hive!

My Family

Something that i am grateful for is family.The reason why i am grateful family is because when i have to talk about something that is really important they is right there for me and they will listen to what i have to say.But some times it can’t just be right then and there .Like one time i was sad but not sad to the point where someone would notice and my mimi can up to me and she asked me what was wrong and i looked at her and was confused on what she was talking about and then she said why are you mad and i told her the story .
