Haribon Foundation, a non-government organization in the Philippines has started the Give the Gift of Tree project since last year and has received lots of support from private companies and individuals. Although the program has received several support from Filipinos, we have yet to tap the enormous market and support from millions of people who are known as bloggers all over the world. This project if known and supported by the people who blog everyday and post ads to blogsites everyday, Haribon's goal of planting trees to reforest One Million Hectares of rainforest by the year 2020 will definitely be accomplished.
How can we help? Here are a few suggestions:
1. Support the program by buying seedlings. You can go personally to Haribon Foundation's office and pay the minimum amount of P 75 per seedling. A certificate will be given to you and the seedling will be planted in your name.
2. Send donations. You can send donations through deposits BPI (Bank of the Philippine Islands). Click this link for instructions.
3. Donate online through PAYEASY payment facility. Click this link for instructions.
4. Help spread the word and post an article or two on your own websites or blogsites.
5. Support Haribon Foundation by being a member. You can learn more about the organization's projects and activites through their website. You may click this link.
I hope you can help support the project by buying seedlings or by simply help in spreading the word through your blogs. This Give the Gift of Trees is not limited this Christmas Season. You can use this gift for a relative or friend's birthday, anniversary gift, baptism gift, wedding gift or giveaways or even corporate gifts. Each seedling you purchase, you can help us in providing hope in our future and our children's children future.
