Reforest Mother Earth this Mother’s Day
Written by Plant With Purpose on May 3, 2010 in General
This Sunday, honor your mom by caring for our dearest relative, Mother Earth. Instead of giving a gift that will wilt, consider planting trees in your mom’s honor this Mother’s Day.
Trees are vital to our earth’s well-being, as well as our own! They increase soil nutrients, restore watersheds, prevent hillside erosion, and enable poor farmers to live sustainably on their land while providing for their families.
At Plant With Purpose, our goal is to plant 1,000,000 trees this year in the six countries where we are working. A portion of those trees will be in Haiti where reforestation and investment in rural agriculture are critical needs.
To plant trees to honor your mom this Mother’s Day, visit our website by clicking here: http://www.plantwithpurpose.org/page/24/trees-please.html and choose to plant a tree, an orchard, a hillside, a grove, or even a forest! Only $1 plants one tree.
Just think – entire communities will be changed in your mom’s honor! Now that’s an incredible gift.
