Around this holiday season it is so important to think about giving back to the environment we live in. At CGG we want to highlight a few ways you can support the world around you through various charitable organizations. We are excited to call attention to Trees for the Future. Similar to our Tree Partnership Program, they have been able to plant millions of tress across the world for years.
According the Trees for the Future website, their mission is “planting trees with rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future.” Since their initial project start in 1970 , they have grown to now help touch 19 different countries. Their work is spread across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Relief efforts vary depending on the need of the environment. In Africa they are mostly involved with restoring unproductive soil to allow barren areas to become productive. In Asia and the Philippine islands they work to prevent and restore damage caused by flooding and in Latin America they are giving local farming assistance along with the planting of many new trees.
You can make a donation as big or small as you would like. By donating $100 you allow for around 1000 new trees to grow! This also makes for a great gift option around the holidays. Make a donation in the name of someone you care about and receive a certificate showing their contribution.
The organization also partners with other organizations including Aid for Africa to spread awareness about ways we can all be involved with giving back to related causes.
