Your December Newsletter
Total Trees Funded To Date: 22,850,619
Yesterday we laid down the challenge to raise enough to fund 112,500 trees in just one week. With all donations through the Big Give website being matched, we knew it would be a tough ask, but WE ARE NEARLY THERE!!
Over the next six days the Big Give will match all donations up to £45,000 donated to TreeSisters through this link. We’re close to our target. Will you help us reach our goal and help show that collective grassroots action is still the solution the world needs in 2021?
In this video, you can hear even more about the impact you can have through the Big Give.

Traditional holiday seasons are often defined by overconsumption and indulgence. This year, we’re challenging everyone to move to a restorer species mindset and give the gift of trees to their friends, family and loved ones. We have holiday themes and beautiful designs for our eTree Cards that you can send and dedicate to anyone in the world. Check out our holiday eTree Cards here.
You can also give the gift of a Tree Certificate. We will customize each with a name and the amount of trees on your certificate. Please place an order by 17th December in time for holiday giving. And don't forget the range of fair trade organic cotton t-shirts and tote bags here. Thank you for supporting our mission this holiday season!
