Yesterday somebody named Jeremiah left this comment:
I found your website while browsing the web and I would like to introduce you to our project, dedicated to fighting climate change and poverty, called Tree-Nation. Via our website you can plant trees for yourself or offer them to someone else. The trees are being planted in a virtual map on our website and in our real plantation in Niger. Eventually our goal is to plant 8 million trees in Africa in the shape of a huge heart. Have a look at our website to see whether you like the project and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Well, I did it. I planted a tree - an Acacia Sieberiana as you see above. It cost me 24 Euros (or $48). You can plant a tree for as little as 10 Euros.
Here are the benefits of tree planting:
You can name your own tree and dedicate it for any purpose. My tree is named "Karuna" which means compassion.
