TREES FOR LIFE
June 30, 2010

I became friends with Treva and Balbir through my sister who was a journalist doing a story on Trees for Life. Over the years my children and I would help out at the office and enjoy the "communal" lunches. During that time I was working for a well-respected investment manager who managed $350 million in charitable foundation funds. In talking to him one day about non-profits, he said "it is much easier to build the wealth initially, than to find disciplined non-profits in which to contribute to". He used Trees for Life as an example of a movement that astutely balances business efficiency and deep compassion. I have contributed to Trees for Life, but more than that I have loved each and everyone of them. Balbir (and all of them) have set a barometer for me to live by. As David says, "It is not about changing the world...it is about loving the world. It is about offering a hand so that others may live, and offering my heart so that I may live. The change that the world truly needs is the change in me, the opening of my heart".

The Great!
