Solar is Freedom


A huge shout out goes to the AMAZINGLY GENEROUS students at Fairmont High School who raised $10,000 for Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund during Spirit Chain, an annual competition against Centerville High to raise funds for local nonprofits. This year Fairmont kicked butt”and pet loving families in our communities reaped the benefits through the students’ incredible fundraising success!

Greyson Osterfeld summed it up well. “In school sometimes we only think about our people friends. It is important to not forget about man’s best friend and the important connection pets provide. We love having the opportunity to support Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund and keeping pets and families together.”

(leave this paragraph out if this seems too long)

And it gets even better! Fairmont Students are also providing an additional $10,000 challenge grant for #GivingTuesday. From now until midnight, November 30th they will double your one-time donation so together you they can keep twice as many families together by saving their pets’ lives!

If you want even more bang for your buck, you can save even more families by starting a new monthly Faithful Friends subscription and saving 6x as many lives!

Let’s use the photo with the challenge grant sign.



All of us at ERDF are thrilled to welcome Solar Is Freedom as a Corporate Partner!  As I researched the best company to install solar on my residence, SIF kept coming to the forefront. It wasn’t until after I had had an excellent experience myself with them that I learned of Tony’s love of and commitment to companion animals. I am extremely grateful both for the help in taking my home solar (helping me to save cash as I do my part for the planet) and for the opportunity to partner with such a generous corporate sponsor. Thank you Tony!
