Are you a planet protector? We are!
In April 2016, our One Book, One Tree campaign made a big impact on the planet our children will inherit.
For every book sold throughout April, we donated one seed to Trees for the Future, a nonprofit organization that helps families in need start their own forest gardens and provide financial stability, nutritious diets and key learning opportunities for their children. Thanks to our Ambassador community's hard work and enthusiasm, we soared past our goal of planting 20,000 trees to reach a total of 26,917 trees!
We couldn't be more thrilled and proud to have made such a big impact on our planet for children across the world, down the street, in your schools and in your home.
For every child, because every child matters.

Thank you to everyone who helped us plant trees and change lives! We couldn't have done it without you. Let's continue to make a big impact together!
When you host a Barefoot event, your Ambassador will share expert literacy tips, spark meaningful conversations and inspire you to impact the children in your life.
Trees for the Future "believe[s] in the power of seeds" - like we believe in the power of stories! They've been empowering families and protecting our planet for 27 years, and we couldn't be more proud to partner with them!

Trees for the Future is improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. Since 1989, with our experience in planting over 127 million trees all over the world, we have demonstrated the transformative power of trees in helping people break out of the poverty trap while also addressing the global environment.Today, our work in East and West Africa is helping to build a world where people can leave a legacy of opportunity through sustainable practices and productive lands for future generations.
