Time to "Save The Forest"...Again.
The main purpose of this post is not to spread awareness about worldwide de-forestation or the alarming disappearance of primal forests all over the world, even though it can serve as a gentle push in the right direction. Our aim is much more down-to.earth: save the fifty trees that have always served as a retreat and the best of playgrounds for our children here at Katitawa.
Five years ago the owners of the land the trees stand on told us they were planning to cut them down and sell their wood. In order to prevent that we decided to buy, or rather rent, the trees
for five years
$10 a piece. What happens is that the 5 years have just expired and the wood-thirsty owners are already sharpening their saws.
What we would like to do with your help is save our little forest once again - one tree at a time. All we need is a small donation of at least $10 which will not only save one tree’s life but also get you immortalized in the form of a little commemorative plaque on the tree you saved.
If you would like to be a part of this project, please click on the button below and send us a donation of at least $10 with the text ‘Save our Trees’ in the subject.
