Trees for Christmas

Trees for Christmas is Size of Wales’ annual fundraising drive to support tree growing overseas. In 2020, with your support, we raised enough money for the community of Boré in Eastern Kenya to plant over 107,000 trees!

This year, we are once again raising money for the Boré Community Forest Project which supports subsistence farmers and the wider community to adapt to the increasingly unpredictable climate and protect their precious forests.

Every £3 raised will support the community to plant 10 trees in schools and family farms, securing forests across the area.

Check out the tabs below to see how you can help raise money for Trees for Christmas and help us make a difference.

Trees play a vital role in all of our lives. They are the lungs of the planet that support wildlife, provide food and medicine, and prevent landslides. They also have a wider cultural significance across the world, including at Christmas time in Wales where many of us gather around a Christmas tree with loved ones to celebrate.

Join us this winter and be part of planting even more trees. Trees are for life, not just for Christmas!

Plant trees on behalf of a loved one and give a gift that will keep giving for years to come! Every £3 spent will support communities in Boré to plant trees, which provides both nutrition and sustainable forms of income.

Pick how many trees you want to plant below, hit the donate button and you will receive a downloadable gift certificate into your inbox.

Last year I wanted to get an ethical present for friends and family, something that would make a difference, and the Size of Wales certificates were perfect for that. Everyone who received one was really happy, and pleased to have something which they knew would help to improve the lives of others.

You can support Trees for Christmas by making a donation on our website or by text message.

Reforestation and tree planting is one of the most positive ways to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis. Trees have an amazing ability to absorb and store carbon, helping the planet’s resilience to climate change.

Donations also support tree nurseries in Boré which employs 60 local women. The trees grown at the nurseries are then planted at schools and farms in the area, providing nutrition and resilience against erratic weather conditions.

Come together with your colleagues, community group or school this Christmas to make a difference for our planet.

There are many ways you can fundraise, including:

  • Hold a festive bake sale (remember to use deforestation-free ingredients!).
  • Run a quiz or raffle.
  • Buy Size of Wales Christmas E-cards for each other or members of your team.

We will also be running a free online quiz for schools on 10th December at 1.15 pm, click here to register your interest.

Size of Wales partners with businesses and other organisations across the UK to raise money for our partner projects.

Go green this Christmas, engage your staff and customers by running a tree planting promotion especially tailored to your service or product. For example, kick off this season by planting trees for every order placed on your website, for every Christmas dinner you serve this year, for every order placed over the Christmas season or even just to thank you customers for supporting you through this difficult year.

By partnering with us, you can have an amazing impact whilst joining the ranks of many other businesses, both big and small who support us. This includes our friends at SportsPursuit who raised an amazing £30,000 with their Festive Forest campaign in 2020!

Get in touch with the Size of Wales to discuss how you could shape your promotion.
