We are very excited that we have raised over $1,000 so far towards our project to plant fruit trees with Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary! Jungle Friends is truly a sanctuary whose team is working hard to make the lives of their primate residents happy and healthy--and we want to help. Fruit trees will provide habitat, shade, food, and beauty for these very deserving monkeys so please consider donating again today to help make this project possible. We are one-sixth of the way to our goal but have some work to do!
To a fruitful future for all living beings,
The FTPF Team
PS: Thank you to the team at Jungle Friends for sharing such great photos of the monkeys while we continue to fundraise. They make us very happy and extra motivated!
Planting at schools along the Amazon River in Peru
Last year, FTPF planted over 80,000 fruit trees, engaging thousands of students around the world in the experience of putting fruit trees in the ground at their communities, schools, and homes for food, income, and safer, cleaner environments. Thanks to your support, we are on our way to creating the first of its kind curriculum to help these children, as well as their educators and parents, make the most of their new trees and orchards. We are making progress, but have a ways to go until we reach our goal. Every donation is a vote for the importance of science, nutrition, and environmental education in our schools and a step closer to making this curriculum a reality!
Please consider making another donation today and sharing this fundraiser with your family and friends. Here's to teaching more kids about fruit trees in 2020 and beyond!
All the best,
The FTPF Team

Keau'ohana Forest Reserve - Tree Planting Video!
By Cem Akin - TreeEO & Co-creator
Board President & Co-founder David "Avocado" Wolfe
One month ago exactly, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation returned to Hawai'i to plant 100 native trees in the Keau'ohana Forest Reserve. We were joined by our Board President David Wolfe, who created a beautiful video documenting this lively and fun day in the forest planting trees amongst volunteers and friends. Check out the video below to see us in action and to get a glimpse of this incredible forest and the native trees you are supporting!
We want to say how incredibly grateful we are to Hawai'i Environmental Restoration who continues to lead the effort to protect and restore this unique ecosystem and to all their staff and volunteers dedicated to this important work. And, of course, to YOU, our wonderful supporters for caring about Hawai'i's last lowland forest!
