Sister Mary Pendergast

“I am a Sister of Mercy and actually have very little spare money, but I appreciate the articles from Grist — especially on the climate! This photo is of me and my good friend, Sister Nancy Audette at the Forward on Climate Rally in Washington, D.C. in February 2013… It was FREEZING! Thanks for your good work.”

We are deeply touched by your donation, Sister, and equally tickled that we get to add “Nun in polar bear hat” to our in-house photo collection.

Already a FWB? Send your photo and 3-4 sentences about you and why you give to Grist to jmacdonald@grist.org. Featured Friends will receive a complimentary Klean Kanteen. Thanks for your support!
