Is it just me or do trees seem to be the most important things around. Not only do they provide shade, food and keep our soil healthy they also take carbon and turn it into life saving OXYGEN. Is that just so cool or what? I always liked trees but now I just LOVE THEM so much!!
How did I plant these trees remotely?
Well I found out about this organization called One Tree Planted. For $1.00 (yes I said one US dollar) you can plant one tree. They are a 501C out of the USA and they take seedlings and plant them and they grow into trees. They have partners and so far in just 2019 they have planted 4,000,000 trees. ISn’t that awesome!!
So I went on their website and was going to do a fundraiser but then I decided to do it on Facebook because I already had my credit card linked to Facebook. So literally with a click of a button I started a fundraiser and kicked it off with $20 for 20 trees. I shared the fundraiser with my friends. And within no time, I had planted 112 trees or donated $112 to One Tree Planted. The thing that’s cool is that they emailed me a receipt and I felt instantly better. I only got a receipt for the $20 I donated. So it’s not like I’m making any money off it.
Would you be willing to do the same?
I know everyone is so busy and all. But if you can do a fundraiser too and your spare change can literally create life saving oxygen. I live in Northern California and we are literally on fire. I don’t ask for much from my readers. But if you can start a fundraiser that would be so awesome!!! Here’s the pros:
- You would be creating oxygen
- You would be an awesome person
- You will be rewarded in the most amazing ways (I can tell you what happened to me but it sounds uber braggy and I don’t want to do that.)
- You will officially be an Earth Angel. (That means Good stuff just comes to you without asking. It’s like you just turn into a cool person over night. Not that you aren’t cool now but if you aren’t then you become cool.) PS this isn’t scientifically proven.
- I would share your fundraiser here too (if you want.)
- I would really appreciate it.
- You can always just donate and keep it on the Down Low but you’ll still be an Earth Angel on the low.
A million thanks
My daughter, dog and I really just want to say thanks for doing this. Your doing this for humanity. PS don’t want to donate that’s fine but maybe you can share this article and someone else will donate.
PS I’m not affiliated with One Tree Planted other than I think they are awesome!! So you would really be helping out all of us including yourself. Now don’t you feel better? I know I do.
