Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 In Africa trees have the power to transform lives, providing people with food, medicines, fuel, homes and many other essentials. So Help us plant more trees. With your support, villagers can transform their lives and enviroment by growing, protecting and managing their trees sustainably (selling their seeds, fruits,leaves and nuts.) Earing money from things that can grow on trees means villagers look after them and plant more of them. More trees mean more productive land  and so more food.. More trees mean a more secure environment better able to adapt to climate change.  You can help more rural African families become self reliant and improve their environment.

Here are few samples how Your donation can help :

-£15 provides a kilo of top quality seeds  enough to sow around 300 mango or 2,000 baobab trees.

-£35 : 10 grafted mango trees which can provide nourishment in lean times and a year-round source of income.

- £35 Can also provide training so villagers can learn how to germinate seeds, manage nurseries, care for and protect trees and employ practices that benefit crops and improve the soil so they can grow more food.

-£170 Can provide a nursery starter kit including a kilo of seeds, 1,000 growing bags, 25m of fencing, spades, rakes and watering cans. Everything needed to establish a valuable tree nursery.

 

My Challenges:

I decided to start baking but i never tohught i was good at it so choosing to bake vegan cakes was going to be a double challenge for me. I tought it would be fun for all my friends, and more to sample the result for a donation to Tree Aid.

 Please check out my cooking blog here : http://bake-cake-diary.blogspot.com/2011/10/raw-rasberry-cheesecake.html

Another challenges is to use my knowledge of the Bowen Technique to give healing to people and donate part of the fee to Tree Aid.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to Tree Aid charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now :) Thank You.
