Are you planning to volunteer for the planet this year for Earth Day? Then be sure to double your efforts by registering your activity so that a tree will be planted to honor your good deed.
This year, if you volunteer for an Earth-friendly activity in April and register the activity on VolunteerSpot
, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant trees in honor of those who participate in Earth-friendly action. VolunteerSpot is a free online volunteer coordination tool, and they've teamed up with the Arbor Day Foundation in a program called, Give and Grow Together, that rewards good deeds in giving back to the Earth with the gift of trees to be grown in our fire-damaged national forests.
Just plan any local Earth-friendly service activity on VolunteerSpot through the end of April, and invite at least four volunteers, and the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree in your honor. Sharing the promotion via social media (facebook or Twitter) or trying a sample sign-up on VolunteerSpot will also earn a tree.
“The trees we plant will be lasting symbol of service to generations to come,” said Kevin Sander, director of corporate partnerships for the Arbor Day Foundation.
