Take one minute to vote for trees and we may all be breathing easier next week!
Between today and Monday, we’re asking for supporting votes to nominate the ACT Member Project, “Making Cities Cleaner, Greener and More Beautiful” for funding. This is a fun – and easy – way to involve your volunteers and friends in taking action to support planting urban trees – in your city and nationwide.
American Express is inviting the public to share ideas for projects that can make a difference in the world, and ultimately decide which projects get $2.5 million in funding. The Alliance for Community Trees has submitted an innovative, achievable, and impactful project, and now needs your help in supporting urban and community forestry.
Alliance for Community Trees’ project is to plant shade trees all across our nation’s cities, working through local nonprofits. Volunteers will plant trees in parks, schools, and along streets to improve the health and livability of neighborhoods – helping communities and the planet.
This is a chance to show unity and action for trees. Local projects are unlikely to compete in the national competition, but working together, we can generate funding for trees in cities nationwide.
Please click the “Nominate” button to cast your vote – and help us spread the word. You do not have to be an AmEx cardholder to participate.
