Plant it Forward

This month, you can help farmers in Africa "Plant it Forward." And all you have to spend is ten cents per tree. This will help farmers in countless ways.

Imagine 500 or so trees growing in some of the most desolate areas of Africa. When we partner with farmers, they're able to grow forest gardens -- combining the best of a forest and a garden on one small piece of land. These simple ecosystems help in three ways:
  1. They increase farmers' incomes
  2. They provide food for farmers and their families
  3. They protect their environment
It's a fantastic deal! Many of the farmers are already "planting it forward," teaching others the skills they've learned. You can learn more here. And please, follow the progress of these programs by liking Trees for the Future on Facebook.

And now, through the end of August, Eco Optics, a brand by Modo Eyewear, will match every donation, up to a total of $15,000. That means a mere $25 can plant 500 trees and $50 can start a forest garden. Do you realize the impact of that small gift? It means you'll be providing food and ongoing income for a family in Africa for years to come!
Let's do this, folks! Click here to donate.

Sharing causes I believe in,
