All you have to do is place your lighting order, as you normally would, during our Earth Week Celebration, from 4/14/2013 through 4/22/2013. For every purchase order completed during that time period, we will donate $1 to Plant With Purpose, which buys one tree.
Plant With Purpose works with rural farmers worldwide to increase their ability to feed and provide for their families. Rural families, who make up 70% of the world's poorest people, depend on the environment for survival. Yet because of deforestation, their land is not producing enough. Plant With Purpose partners with families to help them change their circumstances and live with dignity.
Planting trees restores soil fertility, which increases food production. As harvests increase, there is more food to put on the table, which enhances nutrition. Additional fruits and vegetables can be sold at market. The added income allows families to send their children to school, pay for health care, and meet other basic needs - all while restoring the environment and creating hope for the future.
Plant With Purpose's approach combines reforestation, sustainable agriculture training, savings-led microfinance, and spiritual renewal. Plant With Purpose was founded in 1984 and currently oversees work led by local staffs in over 275 communities within Burundi, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Mexico, Tanzania, and Thailand.
Your purchase is helping Plant With Purpose literally get at the root of poverty by caring for the environment and those who rely on it for survival.
