Help people and the planet this holiday season!

Trees, Water & People

With your help, 2011 was a year of great progress at Trees, Water & People.  We were able to help thousands of families in communities all over the western hemisphere raise their standard of living and improve their local environments.

Some of the highlights of what you helped us accomplish include:

  • Producing 352,818 seedlings in our Central American tree nurseries
  • Building 4,642 clean cookstoves for families in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Haiti
  • Distributing 60 solar air heating systems to Native American families
  • Training 51 Renewable Energy Warriors

None of this work would have been possible without your generosity. Each year we are absolutely humbled by your continual support and with your help we can finish this year strong.

There are so many ways for you to make a difference this holiday season. For only $20 you can purchase a cookstove for a family in Haiti, bringing them a safer and more economical way to cook each meal. For only $50 you can plant 50 seedlings in one of our Central American tree nurseries, helping to reforest communities and protected areas. For only $100 you can help fund Green Job training for a Native American, creating sustainable livelihoods for people in need.

I hope you will make an end-of-year donation and consider how you might be able to improve the lives of families throughout the Western Hemisphere.

Thank you and have a joyous holiday season!

Richard Fox
National Director
