Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is an annual opportunity for everyone to commit to supporting a charity that speaks to your heart. Support can come in many forms — some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice to share the good works.
Here at Amber Lotus, we’ll be supporting our long-time partner Trees for the Future. TREES is celebrating 28 years of service. They are dedicated to ending extreme hunger and poverty across Sub-Saharan Africa by revitalizing degraded lands. It has been our honor to support them since 2008. As of July 2017, we had funded the planting of 650,000 trees. For #GivingTuesday, we have pledged to fund the planting of an additional 10,000 trees. And we have committed to planting another 90,000 by the end of 2017. Please visit the TREES website to learn more about their wonderful programs.
No matter what type of seed you decide upon — your time, your financial support, your voice to share, or actual seeds with organizations like TREES — we know that these acts of kindness will flourish.
