After coming to know about Project Green Hands and their Guniness Record to spread awareness on the need for green cover, a few of us in the Tampa Bay area (Florida) came up with a plan during the month of April (2008/2009) to Fundraise at local green events and spread the message to the local public. It was very well received and we sold gift certificates as an alternative to buying gifts at a store for celebrations. It was called Gift-of-Trees and purchasing a certificate, trees would be planted for that amount. It was well received and we raised around $700 in total from 4 events (Earth Day at Tampa Lowry Park zoo, Pinellas green expo at Clearwater Harborview center etc). My Personal Experience: Today, being in the open, under the vast blue sky, in this pleasant climate and the very importantly, the impact that my voluntary work has upon the society gives me an immense satisfaction which is much beyond any recognition or reward in my career.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

- 2006 Guiness World Record for planting 800,000+ Sapllings - a group of my friends recognized the genuine efforts of volunteers and donated $100 each a year towards this project.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

- Just doing what is most needed at the moment. - Doing it with joy and compassion

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

- extremely pleasant and wonderful to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

- Make a positive change that would impact a million more lives in ways that I would have least thought of.
