There are many other ways you can help Trees for Life in addition to volunteering and donating. Here are some ideas:

 

Take part in a sponsored event

Sponsored events are a great way to raise money for a cause you care about whilst having some fun. Why not sign up for an event near you and donate the money you raise to Trees for Life? Setting up a page on JustGiving is an easy way to ask for sponsorship.

 

Amazon Smile

We are part of the Amazon Smile programme. If you shop on Amazon you can set Trees for Life as your chosen charity and if you do, a small proportion of everything you buy will be donated to help restore Scotland’s wild forests, with no change to the price you pay.

Link your Amazon to Trees for Life

 

eBay for Charity

Using eBay you can sell your unwanted items with a proportion of the proceeds being donated to Trees for Life. From 10% to 100% of the sale value can be donated. The Trees for Life eBay for charities page can be found here.

 

Set up campaign on GoFundMe

GoFundMe makes it easy to raise money online for the things that matter to you most. You can quickly set up and customise a campaign and share it with the people in your life.

Create your fundraising campaign, share with family and friends, easily accept donations and enjoy the results. Find out more here.

 

Encourage gifts in lieu

A great way to share our message and promote the restoration of the wild forest is to ask for donations to be made instead of gifts for a wedding, birthday or other special events. You can set up your own grove page so that friends and family can leave messages and images to celebrate.

 

Promote us on social media

Probably the simplest way you can help to promote the work of Trees for Life is through social media. Please follow us and like and share on FacebookTwitter and YouTube. If you’ve volunteered with us, please post about your experiences and share photos with your friends and followers.

 

Distribute leaflets

Help us spread the word by handing out leaflets. You could place some in your local university common room, youth hostel, doctor’s surgery, shop or anywhere else you can think of.

 

Put up posters

We want people all over the country to hear about our inspiring volunteer Conservation Weeks in the Scottish Highlands! Help us reach new audiences by putting up a poster – perhaps in a village hall, youth hostel, university noticeboard – or anywhere else in your local area.

 

Please email info@treesforlife.org.uk or call 01309 691292 to request leaflets or posters, or to discuss other ways in which you could help.
