Re: Trees for Survival donation request 
Dear all 
The end of your Rotary year is drawing to a close and I trust you have had a great year, albeit acknowledging the challenges and disruptions caused by Covid-19 restrictions. 
I know that many fund-raising activities have been curtailed which would have dented your charitable income. However, I would like you to consider a donation to Trees for Survival, should you still have unallocated funds. 
Trees for Survival is a Rotary initiated programme that educates school children and local communities through the growth of native plants, about vegetating erosion-prone land, improving waterways and increasing biodiversity. Learn more here: What is Trees for Survival? 
We have 47 schools on the waiting list for the Trees for Survival programme. The biggest issue is finding funding for them, particularly in the current business climate where (understandably), some commercial sponsors have pulled their funding. 
Many Clubs have already supported their schools this year, and we thank you for that. Any additional donations of any amount will help our programme delivery. If you wish for more specific details or wish to start sponsoring a school, or can sponsor an additional school, please contact me directly. 
➢ On-line donations click: https://www.tfsnz.org.nz/shop/ or, 
➢ Direct credit to TFS bank account 02-0223-0161944-000 (better value for your dollar as no fees). Reference “Donation” and “… your Club name …” 
Best regards to you all
