Make an Impact in 2014


Written by Plant With Purpose on January 7, 2014 in General, News & Events

IYFFHappy New Year from Plant With Purpose! As 2014 launches, we want to share a few updates that make us excited for the months ahead.

2014 marks the thirtieth anniversary of Plant With Purpose. From our humble beginnings helping rural, farming families in the Dominican Republic, we’ve grown to be an international organization walking alongside over 16,000 families.

 

And speaking of families, the United Nations has named 2014 the International Year of Family Farming. Throughout the year, we will continue to share stories of families whose futures are different because of your investment in them as their lives and the land are healed.

She’s decided to wear ONE DRESS for an entire 12 months to raise awareness and the funds to plant trees through Plant With Purpose! Follow along as we share updates for this Little Black Dress Project. Let’s help her raise $12,000 and 12,000 trees planted!

Mark your calendar now for October 11. We will celebrate our thirtieth anniversary at the Planting Hope Gala to be held at Paradise Point Resort in San Diego. If you missed the recap video from this past year, take a minute to watch what was accomplished in one night!

 

What are you going to do to make an impact in 2014? We hope you’ll join us on this journey of working toward transformation in the lives of the rural poor.
