October 3, 2019

very good idea from Leah Namugerwa in Uganda:

“Last week I gave 100 #Birthdaytrees to Mr. Muwanguzi. This week I am going to give 200 to two people who have decided to celebrate their birthdays by planting trees.

I call upon more people to do the same. If you have no trees to plant, I’ve them. DM me now”
