Tree Pittsburgh and Groupon’s G-Team announce the launch of a new local charitable giving campaign through Groupon. As the first recipient of the G-Team campaign, Tree Pittsburgh is collecting donations to raise trees from seeds to seedlings at the Tree Pittsburgh Tree Nursery.
Donations can be made to the Tree Nursery at http://www.groupon.com/
Using the G-team collective action model, anyone can donate $10 at a time to Tree Pittsburgh’s Tree Nursery and help to raise a tree from seed to seedling over the course of two years. All donors will be invited to a Tree Nursery Happy Hour, which will be the first time the public has been able to visit the nursery.
100% of the proceeds go will be used in Tree Pittsburgh’s Tree Nursery to give seeds everything they need to sprout and grow into restoration-grade seedlings over the following two years. After growing at the Tree Nursery, the seedlings will eventually be used as part of Tree Pittsburgh’s city-wide urban reforestation efforts.
