Trees for Free

   Posted by: aman    in Other

Got this in a mail from a friend in Bangalore. Janet and her team is doing a wonderful job. I say that because I saw Bangalore losing around 800 trees in storm in May 2006. That is when thousands of fish died in Puttenhalli lake. All related to mis-management of the environment by us humans. I am sending a cheque.

The problem:

Over the last 4 years, Janet and her volunteers at treesforfree have planted 12,896 trees across Bangalore City to restore the vanishing tree cover. All in an old Maruti car.
Now the car has broken down. And the planting has stopped. But the tree felling continues…and with it, the global warming, failed monsoons, climate change…and a host of other problems that affect all of us.

The solution:
If we can raise enough donations to buy a new vehicle, we would be back on the road again, planting trees, cooling the globe and healing the earth. The vehicle ideally suited for our operations is a Mahindra pickup. It costs 4 lacs. If 4000 of us gave just 100 rupees each, then the planting can start again.

How you can help:

Donate as much as you can. All donations are tax exempt under 80 G and you will be given a receipt. After you send/transfer money, please send a mail to with the amount sent/transferred and the names of people who donated + address where you want the receipts to be delivered.

1. Bank transfer. The details are:

Beneficiary Account 9942500102168101

2. A cheque in favour of ‘Rajanet Yegneswaran Charitable Trust’ and send it to
