Last minute gift idea: give a smile!


The first harvest from this year’s school gardens in Cameroon is in. These kids are thrilled both because they now have a healthy snack while at school that will stave off hunger and help them concentrate, and because they’ve learned that growing food doesn’t have to be the hard, back-breaking work they see their parents doing when the right crops are planted and nurtured in the right way.

radishHelp continue to bring smiles to their faces. Just $10 will buy all the seeds needed to add moringa oleifera trees to this garden to minimize erosion during the rainy season and provide shade during the dry months. Moringa’s seeds, pods and leaves are packed with vitamins, proteins and antioxidants for the kids and their families, and will also makes rich compost.

To donate, use the DONATE button above right, or visit our Global Giving project page.

Your donation will bring a smile to your face too, because the fast-growing moringa trees are very effective at absorbing carbon dioxide and so slowing global warming.

If you would like to make your donation a Christmas gift, we will email the recipient the card at the top of the page and a message of your choice. The default message reads:
Merry Christmas! [Your Name] just offset a little of your carbon footprint. Their [$10] gift to the Cameroon Association of Active Youths will grow moringa trees that will help feed these children for years to come, while drawing carbon from the atmosphere. Learn more at
Have a happy holiday — and share the joy.
