Tree-Nation: Trees and the Web Save the World

Google Apps Premier Edition: It's Money Now

Tree-NationLooking to save the world, fight poverty, and cure diseases? Too lazy to sign up for relief funds and sponsor children? Well, Tree-Nation, a Barcelona-based NPO are planning to plant 8 million trees in Niger in the shape of a heart, and you can not only own one of those, but help the world with it.

The idea is that you buy virtual trees from the virtual map on their website, whether it’s on your behalf or someone else’s, and a real tree is planted in the place you bought it in real life in Niger and a chunk of your money is gone as a donation. Trees cost anything above €10, and it’s simply one of the best ways of making a difference, whether it’s to the environment through trees or people through the money, I have seen to date. What’s more, the interface rather looks like an online RPG!

One of my personal goals this year with rev2 is to create much more of a difference, so you will be seeing more of these kind of posts — you have to admit, this is REAL content! 😉
