Dear Friend:


Greetings! About six years ago, I had the idea of starting a non-profit foundation that could be actively engaged in healing the planet by planting trees with edible parts (fruit trees!). I always loved planting trees and some of the most memorable days of my childhood were spent planting fruit trees. (Some are now over 27 years old!)


This idea eventually became The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF), an international nonprofit charity dedicated to strategically planting fruit trees where the harvest will best serve communities for decades—at places such as homeless shelters, drug rehabs, low-income neighborhoods, schools, Native American reservations, animal sanctuaries, and international hunger relief sites. Harvest from each planting is used as a means to help alleviate hunger, improve health, enrich lives, and inspire volunteers to take action for their environment. Recipients share seedlings and fruits with neighbors so the benefits multiply exponentially!


If you’ll be in the New York City area on Sunday, December 10, please join us for our annual “Chocolate for Charity” fundraiser, featuring complimentary raw chocolate treats, music, live paintings by unbelievable artists, and my presentation about our important work. Please see the event flyer below for details and reserve your spot today! We hope to see you there!


If you can’t make it, please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation this holiday season to support our innovative projects. For more information about FTPF or to make an online donation, visit www.ftpf.org or call us toll-free at 877.884.7570. Thank you for helping save the planet, one fruit tree at a time.


David Wolfe, President
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation

DONATING TO CHARITY THIS CHRISTMAS? READ THIS FIRST!

According to the Australian Association for Humane Research, approximately 4 million animals are used in experiments each year. By donating to medical charities, you may be unwittingly supporting vivisection. The Australian Association for Humane Research publishes
the Humane Charities List, which lets you know which health and medical charities DON'T experiment on animals. Charities that get the
thumbs up include Variety Children's Charity and the Fred Hollows Foundation. You can download the list at www.humanecharities.org.au
