Hello June! We'd love you to celebrate with us ... during our Calling All Women campaign, over 6,355 women joined our TreeSisters community, and we've funded the planting of 163,137 trees! We did that together! Thank you so much to everyone who participated and spread the word. We have received such positive feedback on the campaign interview series that we are looking at future avenues for sharing and enjoying these brilliant talks. Stay tuned!
We are also celebrating a recent milestone of reaching 10,000 Instagram followers! None of this would be possible without our incredible volunteers, and we would like to thank our beloved Social Media Volunteer, Loran Hills, who has nurtured our Instagram from a tiny seed to a flourishing young tree! Take a look at her Courageous Conversation and get to know her better.
Have you seen our new mission video?
We released our latest mission video on Earth Day as part of the Calling All Women campaign. If you are looking for a way to share the TreeSisters mission with friends and family you'll want to share it. You can watch the full version here.
Several of our treesisters have asked for a shorter version to share, so we have taken parts of the full video and created four shorter ones: Restoration is Love, Restoration is Care, Restoration is about Reverence and What Can We Do? You can find all four on our TreeSisters YouTube account here.
You can watch the short video "What Can We Do? here.
