This category is all about my NPO that raises funds for planting trees.

How Exactly Does Work?

I needed to buy a second clip-on mic for future projects, and so I thought this would be a great opportunity to demonstrate the very simple process that involves – looking at the easy process the user goes through, what happens afterwards, and what our online-store partners are getting out of this.

This was the last of the background videos for now, and I’m planning some juicy content in the week to come, stay tuned!

If anything was unclear here, I would be happy to answer any questions.

To wrap up, is a free service that costs you nothing to use, so think of all the benefits that can be had if all us online shoppers used it to raise money to plant many, many, many trees.. exactly how many is up to people like you.. and your decision to utilise this opportunity or not?

Why Are We Donating To The Eden Reforestation Project?

It’s time to look at out final donatee… at least for the foreseeable future… and I’ve saved the most cost effective choice for last! I was actually considering for a long time to support a local tree-planting charity here in Western Australia, especially with the recent bushfires, but in the end, the labour costs in Australia mean the cost per tree is much, much higher than The Eden Reforestation Project delivers. And so, from a global perspective, Eden is what I believe to be the best channel for converting the money we raise into actual trees. And to further cement their place as the top three tree-planting charities in the world, Eden is helping local communities reach a sustainable, harmonious future for generations to come — which is a very unique aspect of this non-profit.

There is so much to say about this non-profit, and I’m mindful to keep this article relatively concise, but Eden’s own website goes into great detail about the mission, values and achievements.

The most noteworthy quality of The Eden Reforestation Project in my eyes is their low overhead costs and low cost per tree. The non-profit is involved in many different project, and they boast a very low cost of $0.10 to $0.35 USD per tree ….

Why Are We Donating To The Arbor Day Foundation?

From my research over the past few months, the Arbor Day Foundation has emerged as one of the leading and premier tree-planting non-profits. The history behind this organisation is quite interesting actually and goes back to 1872 when a man named J. Sterling Morton started a local ‘holiday’ which encouraged the people of Nebraska City to plant trees — around 1 million trees were planted in the local area on the first day alone! One century later in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation was officially created, and since then has planted over 250 million trees!

The seeds that Mr. Morton planted nearly 150 years ago are still growing and spreading trees — quite literally from those first trees — but also …

Why Are We Donating To Cauvery Calling?

Hello everyone! Following on from my previous post, in which I did my best to explain why the money raised via should be donated towards planting trees... here I will explain why we are donating to the 1st of our selected charities. is a fund-raising non-profit organisation, and I believe there is a very large responsibility to donate the money raised to the most cost-effective and appropriate tree-planting projects. With that in mind, let me introduce our most cost-effective donatee.

The first of our selected tree planting projects is named the Cauvery Calling, which is run by the Isha foundation. This particular mission is based in southern India, and it is a very massive tree planting operation, with the goal of planting 2.4 billion trees in the Cauvery (or Kaveri) basin (compare this to the 20 million that Team Trees raised money to plant in 2019). I like how the founder of the Isha foundation puts it... 2.4 billion trees seems like a huge amount, but after all, there are over 7 billion humans on Earth!

This project is as much about serving humanity as it is about ....

Why Are We Donating Millions Of Dollars To Plant Trees?

There are two ways to meta-analyse this article. ? Since at the time of writing, I am only beginning the process of publicising, we are definitely not raising millions of dollars a year! It’s more like hundreds at this stage. So one could view this train of thought as counting one’s chickens before they’ve hatched… but I’d like to frame it as an affirmation… stating the truth in advance! Indeed, the goal with
is nothing short of raising millions of dollars a year, as I can see a huge potential for the service.

But quantity of income aside, there is still an important question here. Another alternative title I had in mind was “Where Would You Donate A Million Dollars A Year?” In other words, where is the best place to donate money if we want to make a positive change in the world?
