Just one book makes a big impact.

We're been partnering with planet protectors extraordinaire Trees for the Future to make a big impact on the planet our children will inherit. 

For every book sold in April 2016 and July 2017, 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.

With every book, we made a big impact on these families and the planet we all call home. So let's continue to share stories, empower families and protect our planet  together!

What the families are saying

"The trees we received from Trees for the Future are a great blessing to me and my family! They help me fund the education of my eight children, my grandchildren and the orphans who have joined my family. We sell the fruits and make them into a healthy drink that we sell here in the village. And we share the knowledge we learned to help other farmers so more families can benefit. Just as water is life, trees are life."

— Mfodwo Barnabas, a village elder, farmer and business man in Asiri, Ghana, who has received seeds and training from Trees for the Future.
