The Story

Trees create habitat. Trees feed people. Trees trap carbon.
Reforestation is one of the simplest solutions to offset both the biodiversity loss and climate change.

That's why I'm helping the Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservationraise funds to plant trees in coastal Ecuador. Please join me in making every day from now until the end of the year a #GivingTreesDay!
Ceiba's goal is to raise $50,000 so they can plant 10,000 trees to restore connectivity in the threatened tropical dry forests of Ecuador.  With your support, we can achieve this!

Can you help with a gift of:
  • $25 for 5 trees
  • $100 for 20 trees
  • $500 for 100 trees
  • or any amount you are able to give?
Your gift will allow Ceiba to set up tree nurseries, grow seedlings, transport trees to planting sites, and mobilize communities to plant and take care of them.  While the focus is restoring native forest, Ceiba also is training farmers in agroforestry and ecotourism so that planting trees can also increase incomes. 
The tropical dry forests of western Ecuador are among the world's most threatened ecosystems.  Over 98% has been lost, but the Jama Conservation Corridor (see map) still retains sizeable patches of this forest type, the last refuge for endangered species like the Ecuadorian Capuchin monkey and Grey-backed hawk.  Ceiba's goal is to expand and reconnect these threatened forests while at the same time improving local livelihoods through reforestation and agroforestry.Ceiba has already planted over 6,000 trees together with landowners in several coastal communities, including Tabuga, Camarones, Tasaste, and Don Juan.  But this is just a start; Ceiba needs your help to plant at least 10,000 more!

Please give what you can today to help Ceiba create win-win solutions for biodiversity and people! 


Ceiba is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Your donation is tax deductible under U.S. law.  To save transaction fees, you may mail your gift via check directly to Ceiba Foundation, 301 S Bedford St Suite 7A, Madison, WI 53703.  International donors, please use PayPal instead of the donate button above to make your gift.  THANK YOU!
