This weekend is shaping up to be a busy one. This evening I’ll be joining several other writers for a blogathon. Shea at Musings of an Eco-Entrepreneur and Jeff at Sustainablog have put together the event to raise money for charity and to have a bit of sleep-deprived fun. More information and a list of all those participating in the blogathon can be found here. The goal is continuous postings for a set period of time with a minimum of 2 posts per hour. I am hosting a screening of The End of Suburbia on Friday evening and again on Saturday afternoon. In between I’m going to squeeze in at least 6 straight hours of late-night writing; maybe more. With at least 2 posts per hour I’m hoping to post at least 12 times between tonight and tomorrow afternoon. I am doing so in support of Trees for Life. Their mission statement includes the following:

Trees for Life empowers people by demonstrating that in helping each other, we can unleash extraordinary power that impacts our lives.

We do this by helping people plant fruit trees in developing countries. Each tree protects the environment and provides a low-cost, self-renewing source of food for a large number of people.

Our activities include three elements: education, health and environment.

Since our inception in 1984, more than 2.5 million people have participated in our programs and more than 30 million trees have been planted in developing countries.

You can even donate in the name of a friend or family member here. No donation is too small- $10 buys 10 trees! Please support me in this effort to use my time to affect change in the world. Please comment below to let me know about a donation you’ve made or contact me by email.

Thank you for reading and thank you for your support.
