Just one book makes a big impact.
We're 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 throughout July 2017, we will donate 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 just one book, we can make a big impact on these families and the planet we all call home. So let's 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.
How will YOU help make an impact for even more families?
Did you know?
In April 2016, we partnered with Trees for the Future to celebrate Earth Day and plant a total of 26,917 trees.
So let's plant even MORE trees this July!
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 28 years, and we couldn't be more proud to partner with them!
