Executive Message

A Year of Gratitude

By Britt Ehlers | December 23, 2015

As we approach the holidays and the end of the year, we are fortunate to receive donations each day from so many supporters. From Jesse, a seven year old member who recently called to tell us he was saving his money to buy an apple tree and a red maple tree, to June, a long-time member in her nineties who just established a planned gift to benefit the Foundation. Our members and supporters are incredibly diverse. They are all united, however, by the belief that the simple act of planting trees can help solve many of our world’s biggest, most significant challenges.

With that in mind, we want to pause to say “Thank You” to all of our members, supporters and partners during this holiday season. Much like Margaret Mead, we believe that a thoughtful group of committed citizens can change the world. So to Nora in Juneau, Alaska, Joseph in Jackson Beach, Florida, Jesse and June, as well as everyone in between, thank you. Thank you for caring for our world. Thank you for believing in the problem-solving role that trees can play. Thank you for taking action. But most of all, thank you for planting trees. May each of you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year.

In appreciation,

Britt Ehlers
Vice President, Development
