April Showers!

Written by Plant With Purpose on April 3, 2012 in General

When it rains, it pours! This April we’ve been showered with some incredible opportunities and partnerships to restore the Earth, celebrate Easter, and transform the lives of the rural poor. It’s going to be a busy month!

We wanted to fill you in on some of the amazing partnerships that launch this month!  

58: Global Impact Tour   
Together with the 58: campaign, we are working to fast forward the end of poverty. This month we get to take you all on tour to see our work in the Dominican Republic! The goal is to raise $40,000 through fasting, saving, and giving. The money will be going to restoring fruitfulness to the land and empowering our farmers.  

58: Film Screening
On April 13 we will be screening the 58: film at the Moniker Warehouse (705 16th Street Suite 100, San Diego, CA) at 7:00pm.  A live music performance by Cameron Lewis will take place prior to the screening.  Email Becky for complete details and to RSVP.  

World Vision ACT:S
ACT:S is World Vision’s network of young (or young at heart) activists. This platform inspires us to put our faith into action. ACT:S is running an Earth Day Challenge in April and has invited us to curate a page, providing resources and challenges.  If you’re looking for a way to honor our Creator, check out the list of act:ions to implement and add your own story of sacrifice! 

Groupon has a giving platform, so while you’re getting a deal on some local hot-spots, be sure to spend some of those savings on planting trees in Haiti! This campaign will be running the second half of this month. 

Project 7 ~ Save The Earth  
Our friends at Project 7 are always raising funds for us to plant fruit trees. Save The Earth products (mints, water, coffee, gum) can be found at Walmart, in airports, and other retailers throughout the States.  This month alone they’re aiming to raise enough money to plant 2 million fruit trees! 

For those of you still using, on April 24, we’ll be on your homepage!  In honor of Earth Day, AOL Impact will be challenging people to donate a dollar to plant a tree!

The Way
How many of you remember this best-selling Bible from 1972? Well this month, Tyndale House Publishing is re-releasing this edition of the Bible. Our Executive Director Scott Sabin has written an excerpt that is included in the new edition. The Way is also launching a website to foster open communication, questions, doubts, and hope! We’ll be sharing our thoughts and hearts with this community throughout the year.  

Is your head reeling yet? There’s lots going on, so keep in touch with our Facebook page for campaign updates, join in the conversation where you feel inspired, fast with us, give with us, buy some gum, and help us spread the word as we work together to bring hope to the rural poor.
