I love trees. I’m a firm believer that the best way to effect change is to do what we can when we can with what we have. I have art. And there’s a desperate need for more trees in the world.
So in April 2019, I began a Mother-lovin’ program with 2 stickers (Preserve & Protect and Wonder & Wander), called it my Love Your Mother Collection, and planted a tree for every two stickers sold from the collection. As of January 2020, the program has expanded to include any and every sticker I sell. Keep up with the number of trees we're planting here. And read about my crazy number of trees I believe we can plant in 2020 here!
I choose every planting location with intentionality; it is either based on personal requests or order locations. I think there is something magical about planting a tree in the very community of the person who, by the purchase of stickers, has made that tree possible.
If no request is made, I spread the remaining reforesting donations to National Forests in Need and areas affected by fires such as California, Oregon, and the Amazon.
Thank you for supporting this program and joining my efforts to do what we can, how we can, with what we have.
