The 40,000 Trees Project
The 40.000 Trees Project is a reforestation intervention in one of the countries worst devastated by the tsunami, Sri Lanka. It involves the planting of 40,000 trees along the coasts as a sign of remembrance for the 40,000 lives lost during the natural disaster. Inviting the local community to paretecipate will constitute temporary job positions and an occasion to pay homage to the families that took such great care of tourists during the catastrophe. Donors will be able to monitor the process step by step through email updates and through the Blog that will document the entire mission. Later, thanks to Google Earth, they will be able to check out th exact location of the trees they have donated. For more information, please visit the 40,000 Trees Website.
