About Earth 5: Earthbound Threads

EARTH 5 is sponsored by Dana Marjorie Alpern and Susan Alpern Fisch.
We dedicate this globe, created by one of our “other mothers”, to our beloved daughters – Emily Alpern Fisch, Abigail Alpern Fisch and Sarah Allison Pollick. We know they believe fully in the spirit of this project – to nurture, protect, and preserve the beauty of our Earth.
