Did you know that Dave survives entirely off of user donations? We're so thankful for donations that we even donate a tree for every % tipped through our partner, Trees for the Future (www.trees.org).
Trees aren't just good for the environment, they also provide food, income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even save lives.
Trees for the Future provides families in Sub-Saharan Africa with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuelwood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income. Since 1989, Trees for the Future has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
Trees for the Future teaches farmers how planting 4,000 trees with food crops will help them make more money, grow more food, and build a sustainable future for their families.
Farmers learn to plant rows of nitrogen-fixing trees in and along borders of their degraded land to protect the field from pests and stop erosion.
Over 12 types of fruit trees and vegetables are planted to meet market opportunities and the nutritional needs of farmers' families.
Families experience significant increases in income, more paydays, more nutritious food to eat, security from risks related to markets, pests, and weather extremes, free alternatives to pesticides and fertilizers, feed for livestock, and fuelwood to cook.
So, thank YOU for donating and making the world a better place!
