Plant a Tree on Earth Day

BLOG > ABOUT TREESISTERS

May we scrape the cement off our shoes and bury our feet deep in the humus and black soil from which we came; Deep into the Rainforest floor where wilder and more innocent dreams are birthed.

May we dive into our oceanic longings and surface at the North Pole where we touch all things tenderly knowing one day we must part when the evening comes.

May we climb the Achaia Tree and swing from Serengeti branches daring us to call the canopy our home.

May we have the courage to speak to her by name, Our Darling Earth, as we gaze into her eyes and see the love she bares for us; even after all this time.

Even after all this time the Desert does not say to the Rain, “You owe me.” Nor does Darling Earth to us.

May we find our earth-scape: river, mountain, desert, lake valley, forest or plain and let it shape our soul into someone more like ourselves women who recognize from where we came and to where we go.

May we splash in tide pools and build our castles from the sand; May we laugh and twirl with the seagulls and count the clouds.

May we rejoice and dream with bare feet and seaweed in our hair knowing we never looked or felt more beautiful than now.

Now that we understand who we are to Darling Earth and who She is to us. Even after all this time She never says “You owe me.”

What will you do with a love like that?

TreeSisters wants to do something gorgeously poetic and celebratory and also profoundly practical for 2015 Earth Day. And we want to do it in sisterhood; we want to do it with you. Beginning today, Tuesday April 21st through Sunday, April 26th (until 12:00 pm PST) all one-time gifts and all new monthly donations will go straight to the Earth. In celebration of our love and commitment to our Darling Earth, 100% of your gift will go directly to planting trees.  It currently costs approximately £1.00/$1.50 to plant a tree in India through our partner Project Green Hands. During this Earth Day Campaign all amounts (no matter how small or large) will be accepted. Imagine what your gift will mean for our planet and the trees:
  • £10.00/$15.00 = 10 trees
  • £10.00/$15.00 monthly donation = 120 trees a year
  • £20.00/$30.00 = 20 trees
  • £20.00/$30.00 monthly donation = 240 trees a year
  • £50.00/$75.00 = 50 trees
  • £50.00/$75.00 monthly donation = 600 trees a year
Visit our donation page here. This Earth Day may we find the crossroads of the sacred and the wild and hold out our hands in a gift offering to our Darling Earth; now that we understand who we are to Her and who She is to us. Even after all this time. What will you do with a love like that?
