When the time comes to give money to charities then many of you will know just how tough it can be to decide which charity you should give to or even in which sector you should be giving your money to. One particular industry which you could look to is that of reforestation and reforestation charities are doing some truly astonishing work which you could look to support. We know that it is difficult to decide where you should put your hard earned cash, and this is the case for looking to support reforestation charities with the money that you wish to donate.
We may just start by saying that any money which you decide to donate to charity would be an amazing gesture and you should be proud of yourself for doing so.
The Earth’s Lungs
You may have heard people talk before about how the rainforests around the world are the Earth’s lungs and this is absolutely true. What we may not realize is that all over the world those long standing trees are helping t suck out carbon dioxide from the air and replace that with healthy oxygen which we can then breathe in. Ultimately the less trees that we have, the less oxygen that the world has and that of course is a big problem.
We are currently destroying trees at an alarming rate and there are a number of reasons for this. In some cases, in most cases in fact, we are destroying trees so that we can plant crops which are then going to use to feed animals. Why do we need so many crops for the animals? This is so that we can then use them in the meat industry. Another reason for mass tree chopping is for the palm oil industry or even just to build residential properties. All of this means that we have less trees to help us out and that is a very dangerous situation for us to find ourselves in. Each dollar that you give goes towards the replanting of our trees and the rebuilding of our forests and our rainforests.
There are some charities around the world which have been guilty of taking money which actually doesn’t find its way to the source of the problem. Thankfully however we have seen time and time again just how much money goes towards actual boots on the ground efforts to replanting trees. In many cases there are charities which face huge legal battles and much of the money which is donated goes towards that area of the charity, in the case of reforestation charities however this is not the case and there is much evidence which suggests that a large percentage of every dollar that you give goes towards the very sapling that is then planted on the ground.
These are just some of the reasons why this could be a great place for you to place your donation.
