PlantTrees 10¢/each ChangeLives! (Palo Alto)
A small contribution of your time or dollars to the Trees for the Future charity will go a long way to support the voluntary tree-planting efforts of small farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa. To restore the productivity of their lands, many seek out Trees for the Future for agroforestry expertise and planting materials. Through these local volunteers, Trees for the Future plants over 11 million trees a year for only $0.10 per tree!... Find out how you can help at: trees.org/ways-to-help.
These small farmers have the potential, Trees for the Future has the knowledge, and you are the key.
