Your Gift Changes the World!

Thanks to you, this year more than 11,000 acres were protected, over 300,000 native trees were grown and grassroots leaders around the globe were empowered. Thank YOU!

Recently, I planted dogwoods and redbuds with Veterans, a local business (ArborZen) and college students here in North Carolina – and in the spring, we will plant over 500 hardwood seedlings to reforest lands. Digging through rock and soil and planting trees together united us around the common love and pride we all feel for our communities and our forests. That day, I couldn’t help but think about other people and forests, and how at the same time, WildFF was similarly working with the Wise Women and the communities in Gulu, Uganda, and with our friends in Madre de Dios, Peru. Thanks to your support, people around the globe are working together, with hands in the soil, for a better future for all!

Today, we are launching our 2016 Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to surpass 500,000 trees planted next year, to train and empower dozens of new partners on the ground, and to protect tens of thousands of global forest acres. You see, even though we made BIG strides this year, we know we can make an even bigger difference with your help!

That is why we have a goal of raising $20,000 by December 31st.

Will you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal and protect and reforest even more in 2017? 

We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make real, lasting impacts on forests, wildlife and people around the globe.

Thank you for your continued friendship and support.

With wild gratitude,
