Watch this video of Dave Deppner founder of Trees for the Future. He will change the way you think about trees, our forests and all the life that needs them to survive – people and animals. He’s captivating and will help you understand in simple terms why we must help replant our forests. You won’t beable to say no to him – I wasn’t.

Today my give is to help be part of the solution to save our planet.

Just ten cents will plant a tree. How many will you plant today. Day 279: Give 279

“Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and our country programs, we have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.” Trees for the Future.

There is so much I could say about deforestation. I could list ways it has changed our planet, how people are suffering and dying because of it, how it is changing our future – but I won’t. It’s not new news. It’s not anything we haven’t heard before but instead I will offer you a way to help be a part of the solution. A way we can all help today to rebuild a part of our world that will help solve many of these problems.

10₵ will get one tree planted through Trees for the Future. It will help villages as they learn about sustainability, it will help grow food, feed animals and bring back wildlife that had disappeared. Trees for the Future has already planted 50 million trees and they are still counting. They need our support to be part of the solution.

With just $10.00 I planted 100 trees today. I am already breathing easier knowing I am doing something today to be the change I want to see in the world. What will you do?

Time Commitment: 3 minutes to make an online donation

  1. I’m so glad to find Trees for the Future here on your blog! I first found them while researching the Ugandan community I’m working with. Trees for the Future helped the Ugandans after a serious landslide in 2010 killed several hundred people. They taught people how to terrace the steep hillsides (scary steep!), established a tree nursery, and helped them with a fast growing plant to stabilize the slopes.

    They have photos of their work all over the world on Flickr, and photos of the Ugandan community begin here http://www.flickr.com/photos/plant-trees/3594182761/ .

    A very worthwhile organization!
