    Weʼve raised £608 to help Forests Without Frontiers plant more trees

    Funded on Thursday, 5th December 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” Edward Everett Hale

    Inspired by Greta Thunberg, this year I've been trying to do more for the planet. I started holding campfires for leaders where we talked about what we could do, I've brought more teams out to the woods, and I joined Extinction Rebellion and went on a march in London (my first.)

    Also inspired by Greta, my friend Moyra has been raising money to plant trees by running a mile a day for 33 days.

    I asked her to pass the running baton to me. I will also be running a mile a day for 33 days.

    #RunForTheTrees. Please sponsor me to do this 'something'.

    Just £2 will enable Forest Without Frontiers to plant a tree. Less than a latte! £10 will plant a small copse.

    There is a magic machine that sucks carbon out of the air, costs very little, and builds itself. It’s called a tree.” A recent scientific analysis concluded that growing billions of trees across the world is the single biggest and cheapest way to tackle the climate crisis, though coal, oil and gas burning must also end" George Monbiot

      Day 18. Lovely sunny day. Fresh. And at last the council are clearing the pebbles from Hove seafront! (They've been ankle-deep for a few days). I seem to be settling at around 9mins 30 secs for a mile - way off the world record time I can do in my head, but I still have days to go, so who knows. Thank you all for your donations so far - you're keeping me going, and together we've raised over £400 which is 200 trees! Please keep giving.

      Day 16: heavy rain but still ran this morning. The prom is still inches deep in pebbles washed up from Saturday's storm. I just heard that £21,729 has been raised - which means 12,000 trees are being planted next week! Wow! #runforthetrees

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
