Tree for a Change – Unique Gift Giveaway

Do you have someone on your gift list that has everything? I don’t like buying a gift just to buy a gift. I found this great website Trees for a Change that sells Tree Gift Cards. They will plant a tree in your name or that of the recipient. What a great idea!

Each Trees for a Change Tree Gift Card includes:

*The planting and care of one tree in a U.S. National Forest
*A beautiful card and envelope with an explanation of the tree gift and plenty of room for your own message
*The inclusion of your gift recipient on our online Tree Registry
*Online access to photos and information about where the tree was planted

Each time you give one of these cards as a gift, just send Trees for a Change one of the postcards included so they’ll know when to plant the tree and whose name to add to the online tree registry. Great for last minute gifts, they never expire!
Your Tree Gift will be planted in a U.S. National Forest that has been destroyed by wildfire.

Why Trees for a Change?

* They are unique and personal
* They help restore a devastated forest
* They are made from 100% recycled paper
* They include an online name registry
* They allow your recipient to find their tree

The roots for Trees for a Change really sprouted when I was 5 and decided to start my own business selling glittered pine cones on a card table in front of my house. Ever since then I have wanted to own my own business, and I just had to figure out how to combine that desire with my love for nature and making things.

I hope you find our Tree Gift to be a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate another person while doing something good for the earth and her future generations. Please know that when you order a gift from Trees for a Change, your gift has been created with the care and attention I would put into gifts for my own family.

    She has also made windchimes, photo calendars, garden stepping stones, kaleidoscopes, gift baskets, mixed CDs, keepsake boxes and jars of olives.
    Haha sound like me, though my stuff never sells

  2. Can I find out exactly where my tree has been planted? Yes, but only after it has been planted. The Forest Service chooses the particular National Forest they think will benefit the most from our reforestation program. So, we cannot tell you exactly where your Tree Gift will be planted at the time of your order, but we can tell you where it was planted the spring after your Tree Gift was ordered.

  18. What an interesting idea for a fundraiser. Students would get more out of a fundraiser from here than just raising money by selling magazines or pricey gift wrap.
