Purple Bandage is a non-profit, community based organisation from Roshnee, Gauteng, South Africa. They have been active in the community for some time and have done sterling social, economic and (now) environmental work. Read their call-out for tree sponsorhips below!
There’s no denying the SPEED BUMPS have slowed us down 😵, we might as well make the ride scenic 😍. We are embarking on a journey to turn Roshnee into a beautiful green oasis and we need your help 💚💜ً. This is a lovely opportunity to earn continuous reward by sponsoring a shady fruit bearing tree.
The benefits of more trees are many some of which are:
- Trees clean the air
- They provide oxygen
- Trees will help cool down our town
- They help save water
- they are beautiful markers of changing seasons.
- Trees will attract more diverse bird and insect life
Most importantly, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 2320)
The trees we are looking at are peach, apricot and pecan nuts. We have sourced bigger, stronger trees at a cost of R200 each. Please sponsor a tree or two and encourage your friends and family to do the same. As a gift, in memory of someone or for yourself trees are indeed a life giving gift to give.
