I remain a very enthusiastic supporter of Floresta, a non-profit committed to "healing the land and its people." Recently they've launched a new site, Plant with Purpose, that attractively presents their vision to help the rural poor through their three-fold purpose, Environmental Restoration, Economic Empowerment, and Spiritual Inspiration.
Today is a special day. July 1st is Independence Day... for Burundi, the small country in Africa, which is where Floresta's latest pilot project is underway. Burundi is a severely impoverished country with considerable need. The Floresta project has modest financial needs that will pay back manifold blessings. I encourage you to consider a donation. You'll need to contact them directly and offer your support.
If not directly to the Burundi program, consider browsing the Plant with Purpose site and looking at the specific villages where you can contribute help. Or consider giving to their Trees Fund that has helped them plant over 4 million trees!
