“California is facing the worst epidemic of tree mortality in its modern history. A crisis of this magnitude demands action on all fronts.” -Governor Jerry Brown
Last month, Jerry Brown declared a tree emergency in California. Across our state, 22 million trees have already died from four years of historic drought and raging wildfires.
Join us on December 1st to celebrate #GivingTuesday, the largest day of giving of the year. Around the world people standing up for what they believe and are sharing their generosity. Will you join them today to to save our trees and city?
This crisis isn’t simply an environmental issue. It’s a human issue. With fewer trees, our cities get hotter and drier. Record heat and severe weather conditions put our most vulnerable communities in danger: the elderly, the chronically homeless and children. We must take swift action to protect our trees and save lives.
That’s why we’re asking you to make #GivingTuesday, “Giving Trees Day.”
Think about it: Who inspires you to grow a greener LA?
A dear friend?
Make a contribution in their honor. Your gift will help us to create a city with ample tree canopy and a clean, local water supply–sustaining a safe and livable Los Angeles for those you love most.
We can’t do this work without you. Let’s make this a #GivingTuesday to remember. Will we see you December 1st?
PS: After you’ve donated, don’t forget to spread the word. Share who you’re Giving Trees for on social media to inspire others, too!
Here’s a sample Tweet to get started: I’m giving TREES on #GivingTuesday by donating to @TreePeople_org because [name of person] deserves a green LA. http://bit.ly/1ljrUGb
